Re: Misc Crossroads News

The Assurant lot at 20th & Grand is under contract. Expected to be mixed use, maybe 5-7 stories.

There is nothing wrong with the grass in front of the PAC. That's taking the KC inferiority complex to a whole new level.
It's also a 1,000-space parking garage that was 100% debt-funded by taxpayers and is severely underutilized.

glad to see the sidewalk already blocked. No reason to even give us a glimmer of hope
They are reconstructing all of the sidewalks on the site. I recommended that city staff keep both pedestrian paths open on 18th and reduce to a single car travel lane, but you know how that went...

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

Holy shit, they hit a home run with this. That looks incredible. I'm not sure why I like this so much, but it just works with the surrounding structures. I'm not sure either. I'm reserving judgment until I see the ground floor completely finished and clear of construction debris, and the rooms lit ...

Re: Prospect MAX

That's a lot of construction for a bus stop. Something substantial needs to go on that block and soon. It's a very special bus stop! #1 bus boarding location in the entire region. The snow melt system has taken a lot longer to install than previously thought, but given our winter thus far I think w...

Re: Banksia - 9th & Baltimore

It's going to take a catalyst -- a restaurant that generates significant word of mouth -- to make dinner hours in the north loop/financial district happen. Banksia wasn't it.

If taxes are expected to pay for it, I'm out. Keep it out in the boonies and renovate.
You can expect that. It's on trend.
Put it in JoCo or the The Legends - let those suckers pony up for a change.
I doubt current or future ownership would want that, but if it happens --- so be it!

Re: OFFICIAL - Holiday Inn Express (Interstate Building)

I was sure this project was older than four years, but going back through emails Matt Abbott -- the original developer -- made his first request to two-way Locust for the project in 2014. Seems like an eternity!

Re: On-going downtown development projects

Apart from government buildings, is this the only downtown building of any size put up in the '70s? What are thoughts on possible uses? Office? Residential? Server farm? Massive escape venue? Wallstreet Tower (1974) and City Center Square (1977) come to mind. Seems like a good spot for a hotel? It'...

Maybe we can get a laser tag or something in there.
Perhaps a Halloween or "Sell It On Ebay" store?
