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.

Re: Oak Tower

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.

I believe it is a 20 yr lease, so probably around 2030.

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.

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...

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.

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.
