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.

Re: Making downtown more pedestrian friendly

Was all over downtown for the first time in about six months and have a few thoughts. 1) Living outside of KC and only visiting a few times a year makes day to day changes more noticeable. There has been a big pick up in the number of people downtown. While certain areas are busier than others, you ...

Re: Three Light

Love these renderings and cannot wait for the added density/removal of a surface lot. It's also super interesting that Cordish is testing out condos for the top floors. Downtown lacks condo inventory and this might be a good way to test how new construction performs...

Is there a tracker if all the developments going on along at Troost? Thinking about buying an investment property at 45th and Troost and am curious to hear thoughts on the hood. Thanks!

Re: Proposed: Hyatt House Hotel- 900 Broadway

Could not be a bigger fan of this! The site is currently a surface lot in an area of downtown that has little foot traffic. This hotel would add density and some life to a quieter part of the CBD.

Stop comparing it to the old hotel. The city, market and property have changed to fit today's consumers.

Re: Downtown Hy-Vee concept

It’s been said before on other threads that Kansas scott needs a bodega. While another grocery store would be great, adding three or four bodegas from River Market to Crown center would add a lot IMO.

bspecht, do people with scooters do a pretty good job of staying off sidewalks in DC? There, at least they have bike lanes and enough cyclists that cars know to keep an eye out. Scooter mania is in full force in SF. KC a will struggle to keep them off the sidewalks bc there aren’t enough protected ...

Just read "How to Kill a City" and strongly suggest it. Need to check out Detroit and explore how racially divided the redevelopment is and try to learn how gentrification/redevelopment can be more inclusive.
