Re: Union Station

It's incredible that the building is so huge that there are still large portions of it that are essentially untouched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeOer-ZvOvk Yep, I once explored the building and got into some of those rough areas in the video fairly easily. Not sure they will ever be rehabilit...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Darn, I see the angled roof treatment going on so that means it's topped out. Was hoping it was going to go a little taller. It's a massive looking building from about every perspective and a great addition either way.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Not all sans serif fonts are Comic Sans. And that is not Comic Sans. Fair enough. But it has the look and feel of comic sans, which I find pretty half-assed regardless of the actual font. Yep. It's not Comic Sans, but still close enough to be childlike and amateurish. Must have used Microsoft Word ...

Re: Three Light

Is 4 Light postponed indefinitely or is it still happening? It hasn't been officially announced yet beyond some concept images. So neither?" Didn't a concept image some time ago slip out with a "W" hotel sign on it? I would guess a large hotel confirmation would speed up the process for Four Light,...

Re: Downtown Tanners closing?

It seems like the place is pretty decent before midnight, my wife has been there a couple times and has never had any issues. They will probably end up closing the club part down if these shootings keep happening The arcade portion was great and had fun. About 10-10:30 the place started changing th...

Re: Downtown Tanners closing?

I went last weekend and there was a rough crowd in the arcade late and on the 3rd floor in the 10 Spot night club, so hearing of the shooting on Saturday wasn't at all surprising.

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: 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.
