Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

ATA sued her regarding her fence that encroaches by about 40 feet into the Country Club ROW. It's about time. She's been suing the city for YEARS over stupid stuff. Yet, she has a legitimate encroachment from her property onto city property. Completely wrong. NOT city property. It's independently o...

Re: Three Light

This argument is stupid. Affordable housing is needed, yes. But, you don't force a private business to help someone who can afford a Ford Fiesta jump into a Ferrari. You help them get into a Focus. The "Light" towers are the Ferrari's of Kansas City. PLENTY of other residential units exist that are ...

Re: Six Light

I'll put money on it right now that this building when it comes to fruition, will be either 16 or 26 stories. 17 in the off chance I'm wrong on both.

Re: Found a good place to store photos

Google Photos is great for storing. Unlimited storage for photos up to 16MP each. Storage of anything beyond that counts against your Google accounts data quota. Not sure how easy it is to share photo's from your album on there with a forum though. But, it's probably worth a shot.

Re: $30M MoDOT project to bring major improvements to congested Liberty interchange

I called this one a couple of decades ago during the last bridge replacement at that intersection. They're doing the same thing here again: Building for the past. Undersized and overused from the get go. They really pooched it when they spent a decade building the Flintlock Flyover just to forget to...

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

All I hear from people with Shake Shack in their city is that it is overrated. The only people I've ever heard rave about it are people from other cities. Any major chain is ultimately going to be overrated. Large chains don't make truly special food. Ever. Only a millennial would think otherwise.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

What would be the best European city for a nonstop? Frankfurt is the clear choice. It's really the only large, international connection hub in Europe. Why sell ourselves short? Anyone who's been to Paris or London knows the disaster that those two airports are. Especially Paris CDG. Amsterdam, whil...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

.. if KC can build up as a hub. I sure hope that every time anyone in this thread mentions "Hub" they're NOT talking about a specific airlines hub, and are actually meaning to say "More flights" in general. An actual single airline "Hub" would be one of the worst things to ever happen to KC and KCI!

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

I would disagree that downtown stadiums are necessarily islands surrounded by parking although One of the best examples is Coors Field in Denver. Going to a Rockies game is a really great experience. Yes, Rockies games are a great experience. However, what exactly is the stadium doing to help downt...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Missouri could undercut any Kansas airport in one day. The state would have to issue the bonds and even then... One of the main points the recent proposals made was that kci has runway infrastructure that other cities would beg for. A Kansas airport is a pipedream. A second airport is not that much...
