There is. They mentioned this idea a lot at the meeting last night. SOM is calling to build the "smartest" airport in North America.

Re: Bike Lanes

I’ve yet to see a single bike utilize the bike lanes downtown around the Power and Light area. I’ve seen more skateboard nerds than anything. Probably because of a lack of bike infrastructure surrounding it. The people who want to ride in a comfortable/safe environment are likely not biking along j...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

Curious, 11M-12M sqft would be unprecedented even on a national scale. In comparison, Hudson Yards project in NYC is 6M sqft office and considered massive, though I think long term a 20M mixed use project and not a single company. Sounds fishy but at the rate Cerner is going, they could be thinking...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

Just saw on the Development Tracker that Cerner has filled for a "Final UR Plan" at the Trails Campus. It didn't have any files attached at the time so I have no information on it other than a couple numbers... A previous plat filled for the properties showed "Non-Residential Square Feet: 11,700,341...

I just voted for the first time with a big yes!

The people who were working the election tables were surprised at how ...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

this morning on NPR, they did a story on all the "quirky" things that cities are doing to get Amazon's attention. like Tucson sent a giant cactus to seattle. multiple mayors did cheesy videos as well. it made me feel a little better that Sly's antics are not any worse (or better) than the apparent ...

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?

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...
