Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Greitens is though Greitens loves jobs. Imagine how much Greitens would have to boast about if either KC or STL won this under his administration? "When I helped Missiouri add 50,000 jobs for Amazon..." would become his new go to phrase in interviews instead of "when I was a Navy Seal" or "I came h...

Re: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

Looks like someone at Helix has a thing for Mies-ian aesthetics. It's a shame they cut it down to 3 floors. On the postive side, It's got an active first floor, high quality exterior materials, and courtyard space! I agree with you on the "Mies-ain" architecture comment. When I first saw the design...

Re: Oak Tower

Going back to Oak Tower itself, I recently went in the lobby of the building just to see what was in there. I was surprised to find that the room just to the right of the entrance is still decorated in art deco! They even have framed photos and blueprints of the building. I spoke to the one person ...

Re: Eclipse

I drove along I-29 near the airport and every hotel along it had completely full parking lots and many RVs too. That's something I've never seen before in my twice daily driv...

A comment on the Nike store discussion some posts back... I talked to one of the employees on the opening day who said to me the rollout of the store was terrible.

Was on the city's development tracker map and saw this new street vacation request that asks to vacate Westport Rd between Mill St and Broadway, and vacate a significant portion of Pennsylvania Ave north and south of Westport Rd.

Re: Parkville

True, true. Good points, flyingember.

I admittedly skimmed those before posting because I wanted to get them out there for other opinions before tonight's meeting.

After reading further into the letters, it does sound like a more quality plan should be desired and requested by area residents.
