Re: Companies moving downtown

1. Waddell & Reed would need more space than what Strata or Platform Ventures can offer. Twisty Tower (500K SF) is the closest w/o being too small of the proposed office buildings.The Washington Square Park Office Project would be my second guess. 2. Are you saying that this will be a not yet annou...

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Take a look at what they did in Columbus park with the "CP Lofts" and picture that down there. I wonder what the lifespan of those buildings are. I'd wager not more than 20 years. Future Motel 6 or Rodeway Inn I would bet a minimum of 50-75 years with regular investment. The two hotels at Paseo/Ind...

We were promised the Bond bridge would be iconic...it's the same bridge that can be found in countless cities around the country and world.
What should have been done differently? Ultimately the bridge has to stand, so surely design options are a bit limited?

If cordish wants to build a greenspace, let them!
Worth repeating.

Surely Cordish can help out, but this would benefit everyone, not just Cordish though it would sit at the front door of their (our) investment.

Re: Bike Lanes

There are a lot of poor decisions made in KC with bike paths, such as putting a main one through downtown along Grand, which has among highest bus traffic. I use Walnut. Doesn't seem decisions are made by cyclists, or if so they live on risky edge. Grand is wider and they clearly wanted to add bike...

Re: Capping the Loop

Got to finally see Klyde Warren park down in Dallas this weekend, and if Kansas City never realizes the idea of putting a park over 670, it might be the most ass backwards decision this city ever makes. That was hands down the greatest piece of green space I’ve ever experienced in an urban environm...

Re: Bike Lanes

Is NKC going to connect Armour Bike Lanes underneath I-35 to the new development on the east side of I-35 (which contains a cycle track btw)? I understood the plan to be prioritizing 16th street as the method for getting under I-29. That said, I've also heard that industrial interests along 16th ar...

CityScene KC?
I fully appreciate CityScene but I'm thinking more like and actual paper. A full on news organization that replaces the Star as the paper of record.
IIRC the Star printing plant was built to make money on printing newspapers other than the Star. Just sayin’.
Exactly!
