Re: Misc Crossroads News

None of the buildings are really very attractive in their current state. I think all the windows have been cinder blocked. I'd be fine with tearing them down as long as something went in it's place (besides a surface lot).

Re: Trees in KC (ongoing)

So I noticed the other day they chopped down the trees in front of City Center facing Main leaving about a 1' stump sticking out of the iron planter cover. Is the plan to re-do the sidewalks or something or did the City just decide to kill some innocent trees?

Re: Downtown office vacancy

Yep saw that article from Kevin Collison. Really need some new Class A space downtown for just this type of opportunity. Most firms adding or re-locating jobs don't want to wait 24 months or so for a new tower to be built. Even a 10-15 story office tower would be a good start, anywhere between the ...

Re: Downtown office vacancy

I'm surprised Cordish hasn't built some office downtown. Aren't they building an 8-10 story office building in downtown St. Louis along with One Cardinal Way apartments? Surely St. Louis' office vacancy rate is much higher with AT&T emptying out their office tower downtown.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I'm sure the design will be fine. It's an airport. Just needs to be functional, expandable and not an embarrassment to the city like our current setup.

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

Yeah a little disappointed. I was thinking more of a darker brown, sort of like the Brookfield (Hotel Indigo) building. I definitely think a darker color would have contrasted better with the stainless steel, similar to the rendering. Can they paint the brick? &&&

Re: Three Light

So kc_j comment was accurate. Yeah I'm not sure what the term "surveying" means exactly. There were two guys in the lot with a tri-pod type device like what surveyors use for leveling and whatnot and yesterday morning he was there again, both times around 7:30 am. Only vehicles in the lot at the ti...

Re: Three Light

Couple surveyors were in this parking lot this morning and it was blocked off from parking. Maybe getting ready to start construction?

Re: Wichita's Downtown development

I grew up in Wichita and go back every few years just to see friends that live in College Hill (similar to Brookside but smaller)...parents moved up to KC about 10 years ago so don't go back that often. It's a nice city that is easy to get around. The Old Town area is definitely the coolest...I wish...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Bob Jones Shoes is closing. https://www.kmbc.com/article/downtown-kansas-city-icon-bob-jones-shoes-closing/22779380 Sorta surprised, but not really. Last time I was in there, maybe a year ago, place was pretty dated. Found a couple pair of dress shoes I liked, but none in my size. Bummer though.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I still think the fountain should be re-thought...I mean, we are not talking about a fountain the size of JC Nichols, JFC. A cool interior fountain with LED projections would have been a hit for people new to the city taking pictures and whatnot. I mean, Kansas City is known as the city of fountain...

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

Really? I always thought that area would be perfect for a ballpark...lots of under-utilized parking lots, right on the streetcar line, highway access. I would still like to see a deck or something to connect to the River market though. Deck the highway, turn it into a park where people can hang out ...

Can we just tear that building down and put the new ballpark there instead? Problem solved.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Seriously, these are the best "conceptual" renderings Edgemoor can put out after 10+ months? That is what concerns me. Doesn't seem like a priority to them. I still think it was a mistake to choose them, never liked the choice. It's going to be a bland airport that is good at one thing; shuffling pe...

Re: Drury Plaza Hotel

Why not just build on one of the many existing surface lots instead? Don't see a need to tear down a mid century building, that could be re-habbed, when there are plenty of parking lots in that area.
