Re: Westport

Here's the real rendering. It's going to be the home of the new Johnny Kaws World Headquarters.

Re: Westport

Given the bouts of violence in Westport, there is some sort of irony in naming a business "Shot Stop" or "Bomb bar."

It could be worse... at least it's not America's Pub taking over the district.

Has anyone seen the renderings for this?
A few people on here have seen the renderings confidentially.
And? Is it something to be excited about, or another One Light, Two Light looking building?

Re: OFFICIAL - The Grand (former Traders on Grand)

I'm only interested in a 2BR and no way in hell am I spending $1,975 -to $2,120 for 1100 sq of space and a funky layout. The living area in one plan is so small that you have to put furniture in front of a bedroom doorway and walk around it. No room for a kitchen table or any table for that matter e...

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

Realistically, no office towers are going to be built downtown as long as companies keep building low rise towers in Overland Park. 1,000 new employees in a downtown spec office tower would sure be nice, but instead, they are going to an empty parking lot at 95th & Metcalf. https://www.bizjournals.c...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

The structure won't be any taller than the taller tower crane on the left. They don't have the climbing frame on that one, but they do have one on the right shorter crane so it will be raised at some point.

I think it will be fine, though I agree the renderings were a bit misleading, but aren't they usually? It is marketing after all.

Who can we trust anymore? Can't trust the news, can't trust the weather people, now we can't trust the architects...

Have I missed anything? I haven't seen a 2nd crane go up this week from afar, unless it's a super short one?
Must be delayed. The base is still there waiting on the tower.
I will anxiously await...

Re: Google Maps just did another satellite view update for KC

Somewhere around May 1st. You can tell by the convention hotel construction. Portable red crane is there to assemble 2nd tower crane. Went back through Loews thread to confirm, but like you said sure appears a Saturday for all the activity at City Market and I noticed 14th is closed between Main and...

Darlene you have the strangest and most negative posts... this building looks great and will massively improve the neighborhood. Just curious, what part of the city do you live in?
Probably somewhere around 164939227th & Metcalf in beige paradise.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I heard a rumor today that is apparently making it's way around town that Kohls is coming to the plaza. I laughed so hard I about peed my pants, but sadly it's sort of believable if they had that kind of space available.

Re: Union Hill Development

I'm sure it wouldn't be cheap, but maybe someday they can add some sort of heating element or deicer system to the tower surface to keep ice from forming. Sucks to have a 3 block area around the tower a dead zone.
