Re: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

The barista at the roasterie in the main corrigan station building is reporting that the parking lot is going to get torn up in the next few days and construction will begin. They have already boarded up their patio area.

Re: Hospital Hill activity

Just read through the Facebook comments. It looks like the houses were relocated to this site when union station was built and they are currently being deconstructed so they can be reused in other projects. So that’s good at least, still shitty.

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

only 5 to 10 ever sold as condos. I remember looking at one on the 6th (?) floor back in the day, had a huge balcony that I kinda regret not having with the condo I bought. If I remember right, it's incredibly hard to get lending if less than 50% of the building is owned. I wonder how hard it would...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Seeing as the west wing of the theater is from the late 90s, they really don't have a leg to stand on. Of course, when has that ever stopped them? Considering the shitfest that was a bank that’s had 8 facelifts and 3/4 of a block of parking lot, it wouldn’t surprise me. I’m sure they will say they ...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

- whether we need every stop in the closely-spaced MAX midtown cluster (31st/armour/linwood*) There absolutely needs to be a stop at either Linwood or Armour. Without one, the streetcar would almost completely bypass the entirety of the OHP neighborhood that it bisects. 31st Street is too far away ...

I'm an idiot...what are home goods? Like furniture? Lamps?

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

So I think just about everyone both here and on twitter wants a Target, but what do you want from a Target that we don't have now? Even if we don't get a Target, what other shops would fill the need? I mostly go to Target now for kitchen supplies, home goods and consumable housewares: dish soap, la...

Re: Westport

New, larger residential projects should be concentrated on Broadway, Main Street, and Linwood. Empty lots and post-WWII building sites should be prioritized first. Maybe provide incentives for replacing empty lots and surface parking with new buildings. Any time a historic building is going to be d...

After a couple generations the identity could become lost. But would suspect many who call themselves Americ...

Didn't you hear? The much more important battle is a bank that has had 8 face-lifts in the last 100 years. #NOPUS

Re: 3260 Main

The apartments are aimed towards the 35+ age range, not "millennial apartments" as they said. The finishes in the apartments will be nicer than most new construction and floor plans will be larger than normal. I believe they said a single bedroom will be around $1400 and a 2 bedroom will ...
