Re: Another 16th & Main hotel

Major metros have Starbucks every few blocks. As density and population increase (think 2/3/4 light) they will definitely open one in P&L.

Re: Another 16th & Main hotel

As trivial as a Starbucks is, this is a great addition to the Xroads IMO.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

The hype certainly didn’t live up to the announment IMO, however, this is the first business locating to P&L. The coworking space will bring white collar workers to the district that, adding some economic diversity, which is essential for any neighborhood to thrive. If the announcement was tweet...

Re: On-going downtown development projects

This is a big bet on the future of the west bottoms, which has been incredibly slow to develop and lacking any type of retail or new construction. Yes, this is a pretty bland building, but’s it’s removing a service parking lot, adding 200+ housing units, hopefully increasing essential retail (bank, ...

Re: OFFICIAL - 21c Museum Hotel KC (former Savoy Hotel)

Drove past the site today and noticed a lot of progress. All of the windows have been installed and the limestone(?) trim along the ground floor has been completed too. The site was full of activity and they seem to be cranking on this. I would expect this project to open sometime before the end of ...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

All of the above are places within corporate towers. Why downtown KC is missing (outside of P&L) is ground floor retail. Period.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

In this case, a vacant would more attractive than a building that’s fallen into disrepair. As great as it would be to restore this building (which is beautiful), this represents an opportunity for a taller building with more use cases and more density. There is momentum downtown and someone will wan...

Re: Midtown Area Apartment Boom

Thinking about buying an investment property at 36th/Wyandotte (between Main and Broadway). Do you all think the area will continue to develop into a thriving area or stay more of a block to block neighborhood? Also -- is the streetcar to UMKC (or some type of extension) actually going to happen? Co...

Re: P&L District: 12th & Main Site Proposal

Regardless — an eatery that will be open on the weekends, and for breakfast nonetheless is needed downtown. The yoga studio will bring another livable component that all neighborhoods need to have to thrive. Jane Jacobs talks about how city centers need to have businesses that are open throughout di...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

If only KC were as progressive as Dallas...one key issue I see arising with downtown is the lack of public greenspace in the heart of thriving communities. There are no parks in Crossroads or in the River Market that are traversed daily by several different groups of people. Capping the loop would t...
