Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

Also the Weld Wheels/"The View" property bundle has been for sale for a long time as well. However, I don't doubt the WB Flats developer looked at those properties before and must have declined for some reason or another. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/portfolio/13716847/ Is this like the thing wh...

Do we still have any pay kiosks in KC that require taking the receipt back to the car? The kiosks on Walnut are the only ones I've used and they are pay-by-plate.
All electronic on-street meters should be pay by plate now.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

That’s great news! Are there any competing projects with a high rating? None at the same stage (Project Development) and category. Here's one other streetcar project that received a "High" rating in the Small Starts Project Development phase: WA Seattle, Center City Connector Our project is now lar...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

"Medium-High" is what consultants predicted. The Downtown-Plaza corridor always rates strong -- remember we've been at this stage before with light rail twice -- so this is not really "new" news (but a necessary step in this project's process). The official federal match is 47.9%. Less than half is ...

The most annoying thing about the centralized kiosk is the return trip to your car for the paper receipt.
These were supposed to be "pay by plate", so you don't need to display the receipt. Does it tell you to do that?

Re: OFFICIAL - Hampton Inn (16th & Main)

At nara for the first time in awhile and realized this Hampton eliminated their skyline view. while that may suck for nara there his no way a ground floor place should have had a view of the skyline that long. The other lot that's closer will fall soon, too -- it's now owned by Brad Nicholson, who ...
