Re: OFFICIAL - Commerce Tower

Side note: Helping a friend relocate downtown. Called Commerce today inquiring about 1BR units. They had one "studio plus" for $1195 (25th floor, 500-some sqft). Their website indicates no "internet specials" at the moment.

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

touche. i would prefer a world where (re)development of any parcels on the street car line had to relocate curb cuts off of main. but then i hate cars. so. The best we've gotten so far is a reduction in the number of existing curb cuts or their size, per parcel. There are Public Works standards for...

I actually agree. It's being discussed because that is an option.

In the same spot where one exists today. If I recall, the number of spaces in the new structure will not be much more than are there today as a surface lot.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

The Streetcar Authority is exploring using vehicles equipped with ice scrapers or heating the overhead lines, as other cities do, to prevent ice accumulation in the future and keeping the lines functional. http://www.kansascity.com/weather/article201224049.html Yes, Cincy has had the exact same iss...

There was no actual service outage today. "Streetcar Link" buses have been running continuously since the streetcars went out of circulation.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

All day ice shutdown is never a good look. How do other european cities with way more snow/ice make this work? Of course not. This was never presented as a possibility. Keep your streetcars running during the ice event, they said, and you’ll be fine. You buy a thing and have to trust that it works ...

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

also need to stop allowing garage exits onto main. I don't think we've allowed any new curb cuts on Main since streetcar started operating. The dual flag Marriott was almost open by the time the line opened (and the Main entrance is rarely used, and often closed). All proposals since then have rece...

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

A few things: 1) They just changed to credit cards only and the transaction time is slow. 2) One lane in on event nights. 3) Garage access from Baltimore apparently doesn't provide an easy path to Main Street (garage layout is like a "double helix", I'm told... whatever that means). The ci...

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

Only 9 townhomes are now planned. The 'bus barn' on the west side of McGee which was originally to be demolished for a second grouping of townhomes is now planned to be renovated into an indoor/outdoor restaurant space with large garage door openings. They've brought on Hufft architects for this co...
