A save & restoration of a terra cotta facade. While not an especially notable one, at least a save.
It's actually on the National Register (with the Rieger and Monroe), so notable enough for that.

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

Cordish IS justified to complain. Copaken Brooks is capitalizing on the success of the Cordish investment. Copaken Brooks had been sitting on their hands regarding 13th and Grand, a property they control and s completely unencumbered. Instead, the chose to build withing the periphery of Power and L...

Re: Streetcar to the riverfront

If the streetcar was built to the isle of capri, would it be possible to build massive park and ride garages, and maybe save a space nearby for another one. That way it could keep more parking out of downtown, and give visitors a definitive place to park in order to use the streetcar. If the casino...

So is Strata completely derailed?
Unclear. It will be an interesting first test of the new Council's mettle.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I didn't have this issue but agree, this isn't good. Most wont bother and move on to Bird/Spin. However Drop is 15 cents/min vs 33 cents/min for Bird/Spin so worth the effort in the meantime. Drop needs to get a US-based bank authentication. RideKC needs to be informed of this issue and pursue a so...

I like how it's obstructing the view for drivers of pedestrians entering the mid-block crossing. Nice touch of death!

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

So I tried to use the RideKC Drop Scooters and apparently Drop is based out of Canada, which is where you send the payment. I found this out when I tried to add my (debit) card to the app and my bank sent me a fraud alert since it detected a "foreign purchase." Therefore, (because of my bank's part...

Per Twitter - Loar and Lucas have been visiting the project up at KCI. Sounds like there may be something behind the rumors that she’s the next Airport Committee lead.
Or that a separate airport committee is no more and that she'll lead a new T&I (which already had aviation).

Sent to die on the semi-annual docket. Chastain will probably sue. Bold move by the outgoing council.

Why not all-day-every-day like Parlor? Higher margins. Alcohol sales don't require consents in the loop.
