Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

The what on the far north? If you could create a four block super Between 8th and I-70 there’s no buildings other than 720 Main on the south end. There’s no buildings on the northern edge West of Wyandotte between 6th and 7th just south of the gas station there is a historic building. I believe it ...

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

All the more reason to tear down Flashcube. It’s got no historic context and obviously isn’t viable without big subsidies due to condition. It also might be nice to include the lots all the way to Central in a ballpark development. Would need to find a way to include the older building in the far no...

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

If you think Tower Properties is trying to market those North Loop parking lots for individual redevelopment (or develop them individually on their own), you are delusional. They are banking them (LOL) for something, and it's very likely downtown baseball. I agree. This is someone’s legacy project....

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I personally dislike that design except the height. I can't think of one thing we chase Indy on. It seems like every time a city comparable to KC is mentioned on here it’s always Indy. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a similar size and in the Midwest, but we need a better city to compare ourselve...

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

I know 1000 years is hyperbole but it would take about 5 years to develop all of the parking lots around 7th and Main. It's not because the current owners want to use the land for parking. And a new ballpark will have massive subsidies. Probably will throw a TIF into the mix too. And the East Villa...

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

That area should never have a ballpark. A more beneficial fantasy would be returning the grid to how it was before urban renewal, complete with the junction The space is so big it would take 1000 years to develop it all. I think a ballpark would take a good part of the space and greatly accelerate ...

It seems the airlines are getting what they want, a stockyard pushing as many cattle through the pen in the smallest amount of space. Who’s advocating for the citizenry?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I’ve been an advocate for Edgemoor since the initial selection by Justus and friends. I trusted that they had assurances on price and timeframe and now design. I was wrong. I also have no faith now in our own Aviation Department personnel. In past meetings, they were way unprepared, couldn’t answer ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I’ve always been more concerned with the concourse depth than I was about the number of gates. If you’re going to expand amenities in the future and if the passenger numbers grow, you need that space to build out. You would think this would have been learned after our current airport is such a prime...

Re: "Tower East"

Martini Corner was used well before The Drop came around. When I first moved to KC in the early '90s, Velvet Dog was one of the first area bars to latch on to the martini craze. There was literally nothing around that area at the time. Yep, thinking about it again, that seems right. Velvet Dog was ...

Re: "Tower East"

I believe the name Martini Corner came into effect when The Drop opened. They definitely had martinis. I think the Velvet Dog has them too for a bit.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I didn't have any real beef with the scooter riders until today when I was driving back to work from getting my hair cut. I really think they need to be banned on Main from 12th to 20th. The traffic lanes are just too narrow to be able to get around them safely and the streetcar tracks are a scoote...

Re: Various restaurants coming to City

That’s a ton of new places, especially in the Crossroads. Is there enough demand for them all? Could get much more competitive soon.
