Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The KC Star could easily end up running a story saying "Pro-streetcar advocates post private information of opponents, call for city to take back land." The pretentiousness of thinking everyone must and should agree with us is so dangerous. What private information? It's all public. http:...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

From what I've seen in the past, only 12 or 13% of KCMO residents fly once in a given year. So it's definitely a small percentage of KCI's flyers. KC area residents are however 90+ percent of the airport users in any given year. We've covered this many, many times. Connecting PAX are not routed thr...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Wait, who erased my post about DeJanes (Where I posted the GIS property photos and gave out her contact info for those interested in personal injury lawyers for those injured by DeJanes structures crisscrossing public lands)??

Re: We need a new airport!!!

That we shouldn't even have to vote on it only because a small group of people are against it and other projects moving our city forward are against it. When the measure fails I'm going to quote this ignorant assumption of yours again. Just an FYI. You clearly aren't from Kansas City, and haven't s...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I found permits listed for both of the encroaching driveways, the encroaching home addition, and at least two of the encroaching garages/outbuildings. So who approved them? Doesn't make them the least bit legal. Just makes it that much more of an "Egg on your face" moment for the city. Th...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I'm not sure when the final renderings will be released. I don't see the wall argument as these buildings and the view looking north is very nicely stairstepped. Yes, if you're trying to take in the skyline from two blocks away, some buildings will be out of view but with any distance the skyline w...

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

The thing everyone seems to be forgetting is that literally every non-kansas citian who's visiting town looking for a cool, Google defined BBQ joint in town to check out, is going to see "Joes KC" pop up on Google maps, along with this "Ice house" concept and a hundred other simi...

Is it's still being discussed as a W flagged hotel? Any height estimates?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

A few weeks ago I commented on a KC Star article about needing a new airport. I mentioned how unsafe it is being able to pull a vehicle up that close to the building/gates. It'd be more unsafe to have a central security area, that anyone could enter, full of hundreds of passengers waiting like duck...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Crazy to think these buildings wouldn't have been designed with backup utilities . It wouldn't matter given that the problem (A broken water main) is beyond the scope of the local buildings utility infrastructure. The misconception that having backup utilities for the building itself would avert an...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Again, it's 38 non stop destinations when you look at the metro area level No probably about it. You meant to say 41.. Which puts us on par or ahead of larger, more touristy cities like Austin TX, New Orleans, Sacramento (Only 27 destinations!), San Antonio (32), Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Milwaukee...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Well KCI used to have typically 80-100 non-stop destinations when we had Vanguard, now it's under 50 (probably below 40 markets) because no airline wants to use KCI as a hub given crappy terminal layout. No, this is because of mergers, code sharing, and hot-swap assignable gates. Which is exactly w...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Please source the 90% stat It's been well documented in this thread, among others that connecting PAX account for just 5-10% of all travelers at KCI in an average year. That has been a steady trend for the last 35 years. It makes you wonder..should we really rebuild an entire airport at a cost in t...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Frankly, I think most Kansas Citian's ultimately will approve a new terminal once they truly believe that airport users would pay for the terminal; and not their taxes. Given that 90% of the airports users ARE Kansas City area residents, your statement that KC area residents taxes won't pay for the...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

What's the difference between an airport with flights to lots of hubs and being a hub? It's if one or many airlines provide the service. Hubs have higher ticket prices and a lack of flights on competitors planes (Since it's a hub for one airline). Less overall options and more profiteering from the...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I had my worst experience ever at KCI this week. Late afternoon flight out of B37 (Southwest). Had to use the restroom past security, which I don't think I've done for a while and I was truly disgusted. It reeked of urine. There were puddles of urine and splashed water from sinks everywhere.
