Re: Misc Crossroads News

Great news! While the article highlights the bar/store aspect more than the grocer element, this will bring some more livability to the area. Hopefully this will be a fancy (and probably overpriced...) bodega.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Wow. KC (potentially) getting a Palm would be a big win. It’s one of my favorite spots in the hamptons and is well know. Not surprising that it’s (potentially) being added given the Tisch family connections.

Re: 4400 Washington

Great infill project. This area really needs a bodega/some retail. It is dense enough to support it.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Stop complaining about this hotel. It's an excellent infill project that brings a new and well-known brand to KC. The hotel market is at saturation and couldn't support a bigger hotel (e.g. 2000 rooms) yet. KC is not Chicago -- we are competing with Indianapolis, Louisville, Memphis, St. Louis and m...

Re: 1800 Walnut

Not exactly the building it could have been but is still a huge urban infill project. 18th Street is quickly becoming a dense, fun, walkable part of the XRoads. Cannot wait to see what happens when this project comes to life along with City Club nearby. Combined, both projects will add 550+ housing ...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

Not sure if anyone spotted this but a Starbucks is going in the Hampton Inn on Main. I know it’s not an artisanal coffee shop but this is a great value add to the area IMO.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Drove past this project today and am so impressed - it adds density and a bit of glamour to DTKC. With 800 rooms, it will hopefully add foot traffic to Power & Light and Crossroads too.

Excited to see this come online.

5% is very low and they’re opening at the quiet lest time of year. Wonder how long it’ll take to hit 50%.

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

These numbers seem really low to me too. My mom ran a mgmt company on the plaza with 750~ units across midtown/Plaza. They often sat at 100% leased but usually ranged between 90-95%.

New York occupancy rates are usually 95%+. Obviously KC is not NYC but still think these numbers are low...

Re: Downtown office vacancy

Missing out on 900 Starbucks jobs is such a loss. It’s that kind of attention (from global mega brands) that would really light a fire on the downtown office market. I know 900 jobs isn’t wild, but perhaps it would convince local employers to consider DT (e.g. Cerner). A company like Starbucks would...
