OFFICIAL: Crossroads Market (Grocery Store)

I agree with KC about the idea of putting a grocery store on the street level of a parking garage. Garages are usually gigantic anyway, so the store would be of equal size to Sunfresh with a wide variety of goods. Customers could park in the lower level (below grade) parking for free. There could be...

Kansas City Size in the future

Devin, I was summoning up the wisdom of the Oracle this evening about the future of KC. The Oracle says that global warming and terrorism will benefit KC tremendously. As the polar ice caps continue to melt, coastal cities will become flooded and slowly abandoned. Cities like New York, Boston, Washi...

Municipal Auditorium

The arena portion of Municipal Auditorium was just reopened this month after undergoing renovation. It's not big enough to act as our main arena any longer. It seated 14,000 when opened. I don't know if it still seats than many now--after the renovation. It can't be substantially changed either, sin...

the rams play just north of the panorama in devin's photo...the dome is two or three blocks north of the those shown on the far right. So the Dome is NW of the Eads Bridge and Laclede's Landing, right? The Landing must really benefit have both the baseball and football stadiums within walking dista...

Tat, the E. 18th and Cherry location is the same as the Truman Road and Bruce Watkins location. The map Grid posted showing placement of the "American Century" baseball stadium indicates it would stretch from E. 18th and Cherry north to Truman Road and Cherry, and east to Bruce Watkins from Truman t...

Note how deftly Devin slipped mention of tall buildings into a discussion about stadium placement. Devin, are both the stadiums shown in those photos of St. Louis and Cincinnati baseball stadiums? Do Cincinnati and St. Louis have their football stadiums downtown, or are they located in the suburbs? ...

OFFICIAL: Crossroads Market (Grocery Store)

I am convinced that there will not be a new grocery store downtown for a while. the River Market might get one, and I'm glad there's one slated for the nearby Crossroads, but I think developers(not residents) look at the Quality Hill supermart and the 10th & Main Osco as material competition to any...

Downtown Baseball Stadium

If the new baseball stadium is placed in the Crossroads on Truman Road and Cherry near Bruce Watkins Expressway, it is likely to help many areas: the Union Station/Freighthouse, Crossroads Art District, Crown Center, KC Live, and Jazz District. The same goes for if it's placed in Washington Sq. Park...

3 bedroom loft downtown???

Longfellow Heights at 25th and Harrison has three bedroom townhouses that are fairly new. I don't know if they allow pets though. They have washer/dryers in all their apartments, gated parking, and there is a swimming pool. They are managed by the same property management company as New Quality Hill...

They didn't say one way or another. Perhaps there will be more about it in the newspaper tomorrow. They were interviewing Sean O'Byrne about it. He oversees the "yellow people." I can't think of their acronym right now. #-o ](*,)

She didn't elaborate. When she said "first phase," I made the assumption there would be others--or at least one other phase. She didn't say anything about later phases.

OFFICIAL: Crossroads Market (Grocery Store)

Fox 4 News reported tonight that a downtown grocery store is being planned for the Crossroads District. It appears that it will go into that windowless white building on the SE corner of 18th and Main. I think it used to house a telephone/pager business. That's not a very big building, so it will be...

The management agent indicated that she heard the first phase of the plan would have 300 units. I would expect that no public announcement has been made about it because the developer wants to get all their ducks in a row (financing, feeling out city officials, assembling the properties, etc.) befor...
