Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Someone posted a 360 photo on Reddit, so I cropped it to show the current construction for those out of town or haven't driven by.

2nd crane is being erected on Wednesday.
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: OFFICIAL - KC Star building redevelopment

"A sports pub with several outdoor sand volleyball courts on the north side of the property at the northwest corner of 17th and McGee" I dunno, the sand volleyball courts just seems so weird to me. Wonder if we would be the first city in the US to have sand volleyball courts in a central downtown s...

A food hall ultimately is just a casual restaurant. Crossroads can support more casual restaurants. So happy Vince decided to go public with the details. I knew you all would be excited! True enough.

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.

Re: Capping the Loop

Isn't Harlem currently a pay by the week place for sex offenders? I don't see that happening. I don't see this happening either, bit I applaud the effort and civic planning. It's technically an area rather than one building. http://kcur.org/post/take-trip-harlem-kansas-city-neighborhood-youve-proba...

Re: Capping the Loop

The loop will be capped when the sun sets in the south/southeast, during pleasant weather – even though it may coincide with hell freezing over. No kidding. It's pretty much a pipe dream to just to get the freeway capped/removed let alone build this fantasy stuff on top of it when half of the downt...

Re: OFFICIAL - Commerce Tower

Walgreens and CVS tend to plop down near each other if not opposite corners elsewhere. Is surprising that downtown hasn't attracted Walgreens yet. One of the general rules of marketing is to always locate close to competitors. Walgreens and CVS is a golden example as much as Lowes and Home Depot or...

Re: 13th and Grand tower

There really is not a better location in the city for large tower than that spot. It's sad it's a freaking parking lot that might be a small office building in ten years. I honestly don't see Copaken ever doing anything productive with it. Somebody else needs to come in and buy the land and develop...

I don't see hotels going away. I travel a lot and use hotels, airbnb, vrbo etc. It really depends on the city and what I'm trying to do while traveling. One of the biggest problems with airbnbs is logistics. Most business travelers don't book out months in advance and need flexibility when plans ch...
