This looks great. Didn't even realize that coffee shop was there. Will check it out soon.

And this also reminds me to make it to Splitlog Coffee on Strawberry Hill soon too, another on my hitlist.
Very different vibes, those two. Splitlog is more in the Thou Mayest space.

Re: Westport

Does KCATA have something like a sales team to work with downtown companies to provide company subsidized monthly bus passes? And monthly bus passes now include free 60min bikeshare rides. Bus passes are $40/month at my company; they are willing to do this to cut back on parking spaces needed. Tryi...

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

I'm onboard for anything that can take me between KC and StL in 30 minutes for less than the cost of driving. I'd go twice a year just to walk around looking at old buildings. 8) There is sort of. It has 6 wheels and 2 wings. It has a flight time of 30 minutes. Now if you use the IRS cost per mile,...

Any attempt at this will be killed in the legislature due to lobbying by the state's Fraternal Order of Gas Sellers and Convenience Store Owners.
The ignorance about this political reality is astonishing. Once we find out their public funding request, it might not even make it to the legislature.

Re: Better Block Rosedale

That coffee shop looks cool. Anyone been in there? I went in over the weekend. It is indeed cool. Very tiny and you can buy pottery! They make their own salsa. I had an egg sandwich, a mini apple pie, and latte for less than $10. Go support them because that horrible traffic sewer with no permanent...

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

It's true 2nd and Grand was once considered a "regional rail" terminal, but that plan is dead and never moved beyond the initial planning phase.

I like the idea of Main being low- to mid-rise with taller buildings behind them on Baltimore and Walnut.
Zoning and area plan together dictate stepping up from west to east, but maxing out at 75' more or less west of Main then up to 130' east of Main.

I really want these kiosks to be useful but I don't see 1 flier a week using that kiosk to try and find the 229....but getting the asset in place is nice.
I get ya. But this is literally the first time transit information has been made available inside the terminal since forever.
