Re: OFFICIAL - Crossroads Hotel (2107 Central)

Finally KC has a rooftop bar downtown with great views of the city. This will be a huge hit.

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...

Re: Troost developments

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 needs larger police presence

Anyone have updated crime stats? Curious to see if the influx of residents downtown has led to a decrease in crime.

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.

Re: e-Scooter Share

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.

Here's a 250 ft building in NYC being called a tower.

To be fair...250 feet would be ~20-25 stories in a traditional build out.

Not to be a hater but I think it's so funny that a 10-15 story building is considered a tower.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Lots of progress on the site today....Concrete foundation going in on the south side of the project and two new Bay Cranes have popped up too. This thing should be vertical in a few months if not sooner.
