Re: Polsinelli Shughart HQ @ 47th/Broadway

I'm kind of glad C&B is not on the plaza because I think it would have affected the great Prydes of Westport store less then a mile away.  Plaza recently landed the Sur La Table store which is like a williams sonoma

Re: Polsinelli Shughart HQ @ 47th/Broadway

It worked with Blackwell Sanders.  They wanted to tear down the park place apartments (now a marriott) which was a terrible plan very similar to this one.  Instead they built up a blightend high profile block of the plaza area at the Library location. KC kept and restored an existing viab...

Re: Polsinelli Shughart HQ @ 47th/Broadway

I doesn't have to match the plaza.  This would look great in the plaza area.  That even looks like the Plaza West Tower behind that photo: http://www.swiarchitects.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/crate2.jpg I don't claim to be an expert on retail.  I just think that the tr...

They also noted that the suburban location w...

Re: Kansas, Missouri battle over companies

Average Salary is 68k, housing development continues to be pushing up north unless most of these new employees buy a house in Briarcliff or Shoal Creek.  I wonder if KC will expand it's borders even further outward. I think Missouri has a huge advantage over KS in landing new businesses from ou...

If Halls ever went under, i wonder if Nordstrom would ever look at that location.  Halls is very similar to Nordstrom, both have outstanding customer service and similar merchandise.

Re: quick weekend trips

Des Moines isn't a bad town either.  It's cool to go there for the Iowa State Fair, that fair is massive, plus on the way back you can tour all the bridges of Madison County and see the John Wayne birthplace

Re: quick weekend trips

Oklahoma City - Nice Downtown Area, couple cool Neighborhoods Tulsa - Only about 3 hours, cool neighborhoods like Brookside, you could also stop in Bartlesville and see the Price Tower which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Eureka Springs/Fayeteville Arkansas - Beautiful Scenery, Nice College Town

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I don't think anyone has mentioned this but a new hair salon on the south plaza recently opened called Knockouts, its very similar to Sport Clips.  It's nice to see a chain like this moving into a non-suburban location.

Re: Hamburger Mary's

The reason why it's a graveyard is because there have been some many crappy restaurants to go in that location.  So your saying if La Bodega moved into that spot, it would be a failure?

I'm really suprised the Plaza doesn't have a Maggiano's Italian restaurant, I actually like Maggiano's a lot.

Totally Forgot about Zona Rosa and I bet that would be the next location.  I believe Elbow grew up in Liberty.
River Market would be a great idea too

Whenever I drive down Gilham around the corner at the Costco and turn onto Armour, I look up at all the tall historic hotel apartments, i think to myself what a great, vibrant place KC must have been back in the day.  It really must have been a " Paris on the Plains ".  The streetcar syste...

Re: New Indie Rock Themed Hotel - First Locations are NY and KC - Where would it go?

a couple of thoughts - I read an article two weeks ago in the Sunday NYT about the Ace Hotel in Manhattan.  It has obviously been a smashing success - boutique "indie" hotel complete with bar, music, hangout spaces and even a branch of the famous Stumptown Coffee out of Portland.  Hipster...

Elbow Chocolates and Glace might be adding 2nd locations - Where seem logical

Last night on the Local show they were interviewing Christopher Elbow, he was hinting at possible expansion possibly to Glace Ice Cream cause it's been a huge success.  What locations seem most logical? It was a great interview last night and I love how both stores are designed, they both just ...

Re: New Indie Rock Themed Hotel - First Locations are NY and KC - Where would it go?

This is just hotel companies recognizing younger folks gravitate toward cities and are sick of the cookie-cutter built environment their parents and grandparents created. It really has nothing to do with "indie rock" or "indie" anything. It is Portland/Brooklyn/Austin/SF culture just spreading. You...
