Re: Three Light

Many people don't like the naming of "blank" Light, but I can assure you an over abundance of thought went into that. A tie into the Power and Light name was crucial and trust me, out of all the choices this was a good one! I am jealous of the tower going up in STL, "One Cardinal Way" is a very coo...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I remember when KC Devin blew up because another poster signed up as KC Dervin and everybody was getting the two posters mixed up...lol.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Can't you just walk on the other side of the street? Anyway, I never see people walking that stretch anyway, so not sure I see the big deal.

Re: Three Light

I would be happy if people would stop dropping their significant others off in front of HnR Block on Main and then decide to roll down the passenger window to have a quick chat/goodbye/have a great day bullshit talk. [-o<

Re: City Hall and Observation Deck

Nice. Oak Tower would look so much better if they took all that shit off the roof, or surrounded it with an Art Deco wall, similar to Municipal Auditorium.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Can we dump the city council instead? Seriously don't vote for these minions in the next mayoral election, they can't tie their own shoes without fvcking something up.

Re: Three Light

KC council needs to push for a better design than a copy/paste of 2 Light. St. Louis's first Cordish tower is 30 stories or so and looks much better. Plus another developer is proposing a 33 story apartment tower by the ballpark.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

So what are the odds this passes Tuesday? I had to convince my elderly neighbor to vote yes on it even though he never flies, but he decided to vote yes for it since he thinks I wouldn't lead him astray...lol.

I'll be voting NO!....just kidding ;). I'll pick up a sign on my way home this afternoon. Are they yard signs? Can I get more than one so I can give a few to my neighbors?

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Always thought a HQ in the Midwest and another on the east coast would be something Amazon might consider, so you could have Seattle as the main HQ and then KC and Boston as regional HQ's.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

We all have our own opinions and thoughts and that's great, but I think the committee just shot themselves in the foot. There may not be organized opposition, but we've all seen the polling results and this won't help sway those that want to save KCI or were on the fence. I'm guessing in October whe...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I was referring to the "casual" user of the terminal that like it the way it is, but would vote Yes for a new terminal knowing it was being designed, developed and built by primarily local firms that understand what is best for us, as a city. It will be a hard pitch to convince these people that an ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Lack of renderings doesn't bother me at all as long as they have everything ready to campaign on. I'm a little worried that the local business community might not be as engaged in the election though without Burns and Mac. I expect a full on lobbying spray starting now. Yes, so much for their const...

LOL...now watch B&M threaten to move to JoCo. This City and the people that run it are a mess and this entire process has been worse than going to a dental apt for a root canal.

One big project could really turn Grand around....can we get the streetcar to loop through Grand blvd Dave? It's worked wonders for the Main St corridor.

Yep, Grand St north of 12th street is a general eyesore....lol.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

A new tall (30-40) story office tower on Grand north of the Sprint Center would help a lot. Let's hope Copaken can pull something off, but I have my doubts.

Just not sure KC metro is big enough yet to support another team, especially with the popularity of Sporting KC. I've actually never been to an NHL game and don't follow NHL at all, so not sure I would be interested in attending games, maybe one to see what it was about. But I guess the Mavericks dr...
