Re: Capping the Loop

I tend to agree. This is a Cordish thing, if they want it, they should pay for it (mostly).

I do concede though that it might sometimes be the owner's unwillingness to pay for expensive solutions. I think there are structural engineers that would level ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Why should kcmo cede authority for the airport to non-kcmo entities without reciprocal actions?

Re: Three Light

But that logic does get extrapolated. You shouldn't expect to live in One Light leads to You shouldn't expect to live in P&L district, leads to You shouldn't expect to live downtown, etc. While I agree that the existing towers should be exempt, I don't agree that Cordish be allowed to build affo...
