Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

There are lots of other improvements I'd like to see done before that anyways. The main one being a redo of the north lawn

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

IIRC those portions aren't original and are a lower quality compared to the original glass in the grill. My theory is that they were added in the 60s to obscure the blight taking place to the north

Re: H&R Block's Second Tower?

Recently saw a promo video for a possible tower on this site (directly west of H&R block tower). Won't be a new tallest or anything, but would certainly be a nice/unique addition to our skyline. I don't know any additional details or likelihood of the project happening, hoping the video is released...

Lewis and Clark (Intercity) Viaduct

Didn't see a thread about this, so here we go. I took these pictures of the construction of the new westbound lewis and clark bridge from Kaw Point. https://i.imgur.com/eTbQ3tJ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/zBA34Qo.jpg What's cool is that the piers look kinda stylish. However, they match this plan.... htt...

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

It sure was nice to have tons of people in the park last night. Seems like a permanent video display could really add something to the site. Could also be cool to get union station's 100th anniversary animation permanently installed. Since it's already animated, they'd just have to install the lamp...

Re: Bryant Building

Looks like some work is being done in the arcade. Too bad nobody will get to experience it.....

You can barely see it past the reflections, but there's some nice grillwork in the entry

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

Yeah, the projectors are all in trailers and carts, not embedded in the ground or anything. It would be cool to have some permanent laser projections on monuments, though. I know the lobby of St. Louis's union station has a permanent projection show that plays like every half hour

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Nor do I. Was that something we even wanted? Honestly I think deco-esque architecture should be used sparingly in this city. It's one of the reasons I'm glad the deco-revival version of the P&L district got scrapped. Too kitchy. If you're going to design an airport based on local kc architecture, I...

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

It makes a great transition between the original ambassador, with its classical facade, and the plain midcentury modern traders on grand next door
