Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Was this particular project ever supposed about providing a real long-term transit solution?

I was under the impression this was a development tool for the core of our city. Which seems to be working out pretty well.

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

It is ironic that those who campaigned against KC's Sprint Center want to build a stadium on the other side of the state with tax incentive financing. That does seem like a fair issue to explore. I had forgotten about Enterprises campaign against the SC. What kind of tax is this stadium going to be...

^ Do you believe in restricting people from entering this country besides those who are terrorists or criminals? Yeah. I'm fine with some limitations. I prefer they not be race-based, but I'm open to ideas. I believe our legal immigration process needs fixing, but I do believe it's a necessary proc...

Re: Politics

We have never had open borders and never will. Border control was introduced around 1904. The agency was founded in 1924. So if there was no formal patrol, what kind of control was there at the borders? If you want to win an argument based on pedantry, have at it. I'm not interested. For the rest o...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

SHS had outgrown its own lot. So, I think it becomes an issue to manage with employees. Why do some get parking and others don't, blah, blah, blah.

It's a silly argument to make for a building that had a dedicated lot and resources (but apparently not desire) to accommodate all of their employees.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Agree - the design could have been better.

FWIW, the Element brand has a lower rack-card rate than Home2Suites. It's comparable, but it seemed lower when looking at Omaha/Des Moines.

You're not going to find a lot of luxury, high end extended stay hotels. Not in KC, anyway.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

That same brand with a somewhat similar design is fine at 20th/Main.

And it's one of the better extended stay brands. I agree that Element looks bad ass, but there's nothing wrong with Home2 for that category or that neighborhood.

Re: How Kansas City got its' name

Maybe they thought being at the mouth of a river is more geographically identifying than just being along it.

Which is why I don't mind Kawsmouth. Kind of says exactly where it is. Besides, Missouri City was taken.

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

Any hope they could keep the Steamer's name? That would be awesome. Or any name, as opposed to what seems like the very lame trend for most new MLS teams to be "FC (city name)". I think I am one of the very few that is bothered by this. I like cheesy, fun american sports branding with diverse names...

Shots fired outside of the new Shake Shack almost an hour ago. No one was injured.

Police are still searching the area right now for the gunman. Lots of helicopters over head.
I knew that Shake Shack App was going to piss someone off.

If Beto loses does he have a chance to run as president in 2020? He seems like the best compromise between establishment democrats and Bernie democrats.

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

I know it's not scientific and everyone has an opinion about Yelp, but a cursory search of his places in Philly, Baltimore and Mt. Pocono are not encouraging based on those reviews. Mostly getting about 2.5 or less out of 5.

His Vegas place actually does have decent ratings.

Sounds like they completely misunderstood what film row was.
This is several blocks from there on the south side of SW Blvd, isn't it? Maybe I'm missing something.
