Re: Three Light

"Hastily conceived"? I first saw drawings of what would become One Light 8 years ago. Exactly my point. The fact that you first saw these exact same towers in an overnight presser that was whipped up in ten minutes almost a decade ago, and the fact that the designs haven't changed one iot...

Re: Three Light

We all know you're not a fan of the "glass wall" but I'd say you're in the minority. From a developers perspective I'm not sure why they'd want their buildings to not be obvious sister buildings. I think that although you can tell one and two light are related, they're very difference and...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

This gal does a great job of putting KCI into perspective: http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/community/joco-913/joco-diversions/article154767429.html Good editorial. It basically says what I've been saying here for years - KCI's convenience is mythical and overplayed. Go walk on the people mover...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I still can't believe that nobody in the local press has reported on DeJanes's squatting in KCATA's right of way, nor that the pro-streetcar side are failing to make it known that their most noisome opponent is literally leading a political campaign to protect her commandeering of public property f...

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

To clarify flyingember's misleading post, the city is contributing grants, tax abatements, and financing worth more than half the cost of this project. This is a public project, period. And we are getting this in return. Everyone at City Hall who helped to make this project happen should be ashamed...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Good stuff - thanks for sharing. My wife flew out on Frontier yesterday afternoon and said the airport was the worst she's ever seen it. She felt like she was in a cattle pen - no where to sit, couldn't walk without bumping into people, and it took her a great deal of time to find her friend that h...

Re: OFFICIAL - Power & Light Apartments

I think it's a marketing problem. How many people do you know who even have the slightest clue that the P&L Building has gone residential, and then how few even realize that they have new attached apartments that they're renting? Compare that to how many people know about One Light, or Two Light...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

I drove past this development last weekend...wow, what a god awful waste. I can't believe a billion dollars worth of subsidies will be sunk into this place. It also looked like they had a controlled access checkpoint set up at 87th and Hillcrest. Is all of that publicly funded infrastructure now pr...

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

Why didn't they flip flop the parking garage/meeting space and tower elements? Having the hotel pieces (lobby and restaurant) facing 16th and having a blank wall parking garage facing 670 where there is already no sidewalk or reason for there to be one seems to make more sense... According to the p...

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

Really hoping these renderings are still preliminary and subject to (dramatic) change. The original high-rise placeholder design was so much more appealing, more modern, less cheap. The energy this brings to downtown will be appreciated either way, but given how little new construction of this scal...

And the preponderance of attacks, including all of those with the highest death tolls, in both the West and in the Middle East, have been against soft targets in mundane locations like town squares, nightclubs, theaters, and so on. This is exactly my point. Yes, an airport can be a target but it's ...

The storm shelter aspect actually intercepts with the adding restrooms inside security aspect that many people dismiss as unnecessary. Many cities designed airport restrooms to be shelter space.
