Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

Was out Downtown last night and saw one or two lights on in the building. Curious what initial occupancy rates are....

Re: Misc Crossroads News

So incredibly cool to see Orange Theory open up downtown. This is a clear sign of life downtown. People live there!

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...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

Looks better than I thought but is still really weak. I’m still in the boat of any new housing project downtown is a win but slowly raising the bar about what we should call acceptable. This project looks a lot different than the renderings. The goal in my mind is to get DTKCMO’s population to 50k A...

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

I love this project. It could be taller and have less parking but it will bring ~500 residents downtown along with ground floor retail. I wonder if this project could secure another CVS/bodega/grocer.

Re: 2018 Downtown Reports

As long as occupancy rates are 95%+ there should be no reason not to keep building. Demand is clearly there -- as more folks move and prices increase, it will eventually make sense to start building more condos.
