Re: We need a new airport!!!

If There is no bizarre love for a shitty old dated terminal like KC has for KCI. KC has a very odd emotional attachment to KCI and there are a lot of people that are enjoying watching the process to get a new terminal stumble. The election showed that those that have some kind of emotional attachme...

Re: Interstate 70 KC to St Louis

KMBC Channel 9 just reported that construction will begin soon on repairs to the I-70 bridge near Rocheport, Missouri. They said to expect backups from 3 to 8 hours. MDOT blamed voters not passing the gas tax in November to fund a new bridge. on one hand it's going to be good to see something so vi...

The giant parking garage as the first impression is a nice touch.
i mean all of my "favorite" airports have a giant parking garage rammed up next to them. the one right on top of PDX is enormous.

Looks pretty lame. Like something that belongs in Oklahoma City or St Louis.
cincinnati or amarillo, prolly but yeah, 4m vs 15m passengers/year makes 100% sense. :twisted:

Re: Brookside

i forgot how kind of weird (in a good way) both 65th (east of downtown BKS) and Gregory are to the east.

65th (again east of the main business district) is sort of getting a Seattle vibe from streetview.

i mean, there's a difference between enterprise the corporate entity not happy about a large rental car tax, and the extended taylor family wanting to invest their personal wealth into their hometown 15 years later. but yes, kind of ironic.

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

I'm onboard for anything that can take me between KC and StL in 30 minutes for less than the cost of driving. I'd go twice a year just to walk around looking at old buildings. 8) There is sort of. It has 6 wheels and 2 wings. It has a flight time of 30 minutes. Now if you use the IRS cost per mile,...

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

Any hope they could keep the Steamer's name? That would be awesome. Or any name, as opposed to what seems like the very lame trend for most new MLS teams to be "FC (city name)". I think I am one of the very few that is bothered by this. I like cheesy, fun american sports branding with diverse names...

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

I could also see the STL ownership wanting to be in the Eastern conference since STL has always considered itself part of the "East." From interactions I've had, there is an aversion to being considered anything in relation to the West other than the gateway to it. They will probably claim a bigger...

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

we have plenty of space in downtown west for this thing (unfortunately). Yep, that area west of Union Station (or just downtown west, in general) is definitely not "prime land". It is quite empty, and the interchange there now is essentially wasted space. Something like this stadium would be a mass...

Were there any discussions to repurpose the dome? Not that i'm aware of. In theory that seems logical, but unfortunately the dome would be wildly out of spec of the parameters that MLS is looking for. I would not want to attend a soccer game in a dome. That's where the repurposing comes in - remove...
