I believe it is a 20 yr lease, so probably around 2030.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

KCP&L wanted a new tower after the City helped fund the HnR Block tower. The City balked, so KCP&L moved into 1KCP.

Re: Three Light

This whole thing is silly. The City signed the agreement back in 2004. They are obligated to fund the parking garages and Cordish is obligated to build out at least to Four Light. All this will do is delay the project. Not a big deal, so maybe ground breaking doesn't happen until late Summer or Fall.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

How is St. Louis getting a 10-12 story office building as part of Ballpark Village when the AT&T tower is basically empty? Copaken needs to shit or get out of the development business. Doesn't help that the Kemper family does nothing for downtown either except hold onto empty parking lots.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

HnR Blocks tower is nice, wish it was a little taller, but it's 17 floors I think. I agree with KCP, one new tall building on the lot north of the Sprint Center would be nice, even if it's 30 stories. The rest of downtown, I would prefer infill projects to get rid of the surface lots. All the Light ...

Re: Streetcar to the riverfront

Exciting...this needs to happen for many reasons. https://cityscenekc.com/casino/ Of course it was first on kcrag. http://kcrag.com/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=20237&start=20#p561607 I would hope they would blow up the current casino and build a new one much bigger and nicer, with a hotel added.

Re: Three Light

Many people don't like the naming of "blank" Light, but I can assure you an over abundance of thought went into that. A tie into the Power and Light name was crucial and trust me, out of all the choices this was a good one! I am jealous of the tower going up in STL, "One Cardinal Way...

Can't you just walk on the other side of the street? Anyway, I never see people walking that stretch anyway, so not sure I see the big deal.

I would be happy if people would stop dropping their significant others off in front of HnR Block on Main and then decide to roll down the passenger window to have a quick chat/goodbye/have a great day bullshit talk. [-o<

Re: City Hall and Observation Deck

Nice. Oak Tower would look so much better if they took all that shit off the roof, or surrounded it with an Art Deco wall, similar to Municipal Auditorium.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Can we dump the city council instead? Seriously don't vote for these minions in the next mayoral election, they can't tie their own shoes without fvcking something up.

Re: Three Light

KC council needs to push for a better design than a copy/paste of 2 Light. St. Louis's first Cordish tower is 30 stories or so and looks much better. Plus another developer is proposing a 33 story apartment tower by the ballpark.

So what are the odds this passes Tuesday? I had to convince my elderly neighbor to vote yes on it even though he never flies, but he decided to vote yes for it since he thinks I wouldn't lead him astray...lol.

I'll be voting NO!....just kidding ;). I'll pick up a sign on my way home this afternoon. Are they yard signs? Can I get more than one so I can give a few to my neighbors?

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Always thought a HQ in the Midwest and another on the east coast would be something Amazon might consider, so you could have Seattle as the main HQ and then KC and Boston as regional HQ's.

We all have our own opinions and thoughts and that's great, but I think the committee just shot themselves in the foot. There may not be organized opposition, but we've all seen the polling results and this won't help sway those that want to save KCI or were on the fence. I'm guessing in October whe...

I was referring to the "casual" user of the terminal that like it the way it is, but would vote Yes for a new terminal knowing it was being designed, developed and built by primarily local firms that understand what is best for us, as a city. It will be a hard pitch to convince these peopl...

Lack of renderings doesn't bother me at all as long as they have everything ready to campaign on. I'm a little worried that the local business community might not be as engaged in the election though without Burns and Mac. I expect a full on lobbying spray starting now. Yes, so much for their const...
