Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I've heard several people grumble at work about the murals on Two Light. The north side has a picture of Wilt Chamberlin playing for KU and on the east side of the garage there is a large picture of Mario Chalmers hitting the 3 when KU won the National Championship in 2008. It makes me smile every t...

Re: Closing Grand all the time is stupid.

Is it just the weekends or weekdays also? I guess I have never noticed it, except during the Big 12 tournament.

Re: If you HAD to move to the Kansas side, where? (POLL)

I've lived on both sides, but if I were to move back to KS from Waldo, it would probably be PV or Fairway. I've considered a move, primarily because there is very little privacy in the city with the houses so close together and I'd like to have a bigger back yard.

Re: Three Light

For 3 Light, Cordish should just stack a bunch of shipping containers 300 feet tall. Now all that is going to happen, is Cordish is going to use cheaper materials and finishes for the next towers to ensure their projected return on investment.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

so why are they doing a sales tax increase instead of the property tax levy increase on surrounding businesses. And yet only those surrounding businesses can vote? I must be missing something.

Re: Three Light

We just need to be careful as a city to not put all the affordable housing in one "section" of downtown and pat ourselves on the back..it needs to be mixed within all other housing....but I'm fine not saying high end new build has to include affordable housing every time. Agree there. We don't want...

Re: Three Light

I don't agree with the 2 council members and as ST stated, these are high end luxury apartments. If the council wants "rent control" or affordable housing, build lower end apartments in the east village. Sorry, but if you can't afford to live downtown, move or get a better job, that's life.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

BBQ and food in general is very subjective and can be debated to no end. Depends on your likes/dislikes. I think Joes's KC is probably the best tasting BBQ in KC and their french fries/baked beans are probably the best in the city. Arthur Bryants has great burnt ends, but their fries are probably th...

Re: Oak Tower

I thought the Bryant building was one big data center? I probably have them mixed up, but the Bryant building could use some tlc as well. Pretty sure it still has the original lead windows in it.

Is this building occupied? It's never lit up at night like City Hall, which is a shame.

Agree. That tower would look fantastic in the Crossroads or even CC.

I flew into STL twice in 2017....sorry, it's not that impressive, it's an airport. Impressive is DIA, SEATAC, SkyHarbor, etc. You must not get out of Missouri much? The new KCI will be very nice and open.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

KCP&L wanted a new tower after the City helped fund the HnR Block tower. The City balked, so KCP&L moved into 1KCP.

Re: Three Light

This whole thing is silly. The City signed the agreement back in 2004. They are obligated to fund the parking garages and Cordish is obligated to build out at least to Four Light. All this will do is delay the project. Not a big deal, so maybe ground breaking doesn't happen until late Summer or Fall.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

How is St. Louis getting a 10-12 story office building as part of Ballpark Village when the AT&T tower is basically empty? Copaken needs to shit or get out of the development business. Doesn't help that the Kemper family does nothing for downtown either except hold onto empty parking lots.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

HnR Blocks tower is nice, wish it was a little taller, but it's 17 floors I think. I agree with KCP, one new tall building on the lot north of the Sprint Center would be nice, even if it's 30 stories. The rest of downtown, I would prefer infill projects to get rid of the surface lots. All the Light ...

I would hope they would blow up the current casino and build a new one much bigger and nicer, with a hotel added.
