Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Pretty much any street downtown outside PnL needs extensive landscaping. Broadway is probably the most desolate street downtown. The City has really neglected this for too long, but again, it's the KC way.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Why not just build the 3rd and smallest building of the PAC like it was originally planned?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Most people don't associate good things with airports anyway....traffic, delayed flights, overpriced food, congestion, etc. Why would you want to associate that with Martin Luther King? I would prefer Prospect or Paseo to be renamed and maybe a nice fountain added.

Re: Six Light

Are all Light towers going to be designed by the same architect Humpheys & Partners? An easy way to change them up is hire a different architect perhaps? Why not use local firms to design? H&P was used for One Light. Hord, Coplan and Macht for Two Light. Using local firms isn’t out of the question ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I think STs has stated before the sign is there because of the PBR bar. And why is this being discussed in the Loews Hotel thread? I don't see what the big deal is. And btw, the roof over the Live District looks terrible. It's obviously been patched up.

It would be cool to see a before and after picture(s) of the entire PnL area taken from the same location, before any construction even started.

88 title game would have probably been a picture of Danny Manning, which I think would have been awesome as well. :)

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Nice pictures ST. I think the KU picture is more a nod to Kansas City's historical ties to college basketball, whether Final Fours, Big 8/12 tournaments or NCAA regional tournaments. It's a big part of KC's sports history. Even though Kansas City hasn't hosted a Final Four since 1988, KC still holds...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Honestly putting school alligence aside here, seems like a silly mural addition. The throwback to the 88 reebok dunk ad ...on this very site...would have been much cooler and still tied into college basketball. I agree, that would be cool and should happen and that ties in perfectly with KU as well...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Mario Chalmers hitting a 3 in the 2008 National Championship. Arguably the single most important shot in school history. Key word being "school" not "city". Lawrence and KU are not KC. If KC had a big time sports school like Cincy or Louisville, or ST Louis does, it would make sense. I just would h...

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...

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.
