Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Re: Plaza Church of Christ, Scientist Just noticed on the 46 Penn construction cam that the north side of the tile roof has been patched several times and I don't think all the patches are tile. Suggests that the congregation is having a hard time supporting the building. So, sell the building to a...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

I’m sure not the place to put this. There is a new Formula E road racing league that just started. All electric cars and similar to a Grand Prix, Monte Carlo-type race. That’d be pretty cool to have downtown and would be a good connector to us pushing for more technology businesses and green jobs.

I see activity all the time. I even see lots of people setting up tents so they can experience the beautiful park at all hours.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Official announcement that the new Conservatory will be placed on campus and not at Westport HS building. Seems like the right move.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Was really excited about Icelandair entering the market and booked a very early flight there when they launched. I thought the biggest gain for the city would be driving down the price for other airlines to Europe. It appears now that instead of IA pushing a lower price, they have just copied pricin...

I wish this had been bigger at three sections over the garage instead of two, with the overhanging sections over the alley.

Losing Kareem Hunt was a loss too. While Damien Williams was good. I don’t know if he was a drop in replacement.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Someone tell me about Steve Miller. He has the second most cash on hand and talks about building infrastructure including expanding streetcar. Good background of running infrastructure projects which would be good for airport progress. Have never heard of him though.

Re: Politics

There is so much talk about automated cars recently with Tesla and others working in self driving. I’m surprised that airplanes haven’t also seen movement in this direction. This would eliminate pilot cost and allow automated air traffic control systems. The cost would probably be paid for by the ex...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

^ Seems to me not a bad thing to see alternatives and then push Edgemoor to produce a better product and speed up work. They better get busy or they will lose this contract. Just getting the bid and skating isn’t going to get it done.

Re: High Speed Rail - someday?

is there many chance in the future that we are considered one metro? If travel times are as short as driving from Lawrence to DT do we get a “Missouri” labeled NBA team? Do two airports become redundant? Do artists choose one venue or the other? I know this is WAY in the future, but I wonder what a ...

There were small work lights on all floors of the hotel last night. It showed height deminsion in comparison to all the rest of the buildings DT and gave an idea of what a new nighttime skyline will look like. Very cool!

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

We have to decide if we want affordable housing or chic, cool buildings. If you want affordable, keep every useful building like this one and find an empty lot for your new building. Increased supply produces decreased cost to live in the city.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

I believe I heard that Goodwill is staying and has renovation plans. They will not be renovating. The choices are sell and move or stay in the building as-is. But, the sale discussions are very, very preliminary if they materialize at all. Even the discussion is a good sign for that area and the fu...

Yeah but then you have to deal with DeJanes and her cabal of NIMBYs. As long as she lives in Brookside, a line there is never going to happen.
We’re letting some old lady with a law degree determine the transportation plans for the city?! She’s nothing.

Re: Streetcar to the riverfront

Agreed, but I'm not sure that a riverfront extension prohibits extensions elsewhere, i.e. to areas which are already somewhat developed and needing incentive to get more dense. If there are entities that have the power and money to push this extension, more power to them. The entities with the powe...
