Re: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

yeah, it sucks. the architecture is nice, despite only being a few stories. when branch banking disintegrates, it will make a great retail shop that will actually generate sales tax revenue for the TDD.

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

the next downtown parking and transportation commission is jan. 23 at 11:30 (10th floor city hall). please come and testify with these fixes, if you can. i believe there would be support for closing truman to 12th (or restricting heavily) on event nights if there was enough of an outcry.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

It's a recommendation. Depending on the situation, and sitting City Council at any given time, that height recommendation can disappear. If Cerner wanted to build several 40-story towers in the Crossroads at 20th and Grand, 20th and Oak, or Wyandotte and Southwest Boulevard, and bring thousands of ...

Re: Capping the Loop

Get rid of the cuts, a train only street from Truman to Pershing could be doable. if your focus is streetcar speed and reliability (the only reason to dedicate space to transit), you don't need to remove cars from main street in the crossroads. you need to remove them from truman to 12th. a simpler...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Why is this site height limited to only two stories? Its only a block away from the convention hotel, which will be 20+, and the Opus apartments will be 6. Maybe we don't want something towering over the Kauffman Center, but 5-6 stories would be in scale. edit: I guess it is 4 on the south side, bu...

Re: Three Light

cordish doesn't own the garages, so it would not be a good idea to invest garage revenue into their apartment building (unless it was to fund a public parking structure that's part of three light).

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

Somebody talk to me about this City Center Square idea. That was a new one to me, but I'm all ears. that food court is a waste of space and the first floor tenants aren't all that either (although one is the last post office in the loop). CCS already has loading docks, three big entrances on main a...
