Well, this would have been amazing. I have never seen this or know what it was for, but someday downtown KC will get some really impressive or at least interesting new towers.

This reminded me that I downloaded this building as a replacement design for the convention hotel that is being built.

The lobby floor has some impressive height. The lobby bar will have a killer DT view.

The lobby height is HUGE.
You're right, the floor to ceiling view out those windows will be stunning.

The cladding looks somewhat beige, I thought the renderings looked more grey. Is this a pre-cast stone like the KCPA or metal panels like the Barnes ballroom?

Depends on the lighting. Beige can look a little more blue with a daytime color temp and will look more yellow at sunset as the sun skews towards yellow.

The panels look good in my opinion.

I looked at the plans. Baltimore is where floors are counted from.
There's going to be a two-story restaurant on 1 and 2 with direct Baltimore access as well as hotel access. So this will let people walk out from their room and reach Baltimore directly. So that side won't be completely a wall of nothing. Bike parking will be available here.

Then on level 3 on the NE corner is the fitness center and the pool to the south along Baltimore.

Level 4-5 the NE corner is an outdoor deck on the NE corner. The main hotel restaurant on the east side with mostly with views of the hotel across the street but you can also see across and access the outdoor deck from it. It looks like the hotel bar will sit up next to the north end of the lobby on the west side but will be able to see out past it from nearly the southern end of the lobby.

Level six the rooms start on one side of the floor but there's a hotel club on the NE corner.

There's going to be very few rooms without a good view of something downtown
