Wondering about the glass. Modern high rise glass usually is reflective to a degree that to the outside in daylight it is opaque. One does not need to concern about privacy or walking about au naturale during the daytime, only at night when interior lighting is on. Here you can see quite clearly into the interior.

For Kansas City? I don't know that "Sidewalk Closed" is how we want to brand KC, no matter how true it is.

Surface lots started building up in the 1920s. Expect it to take decades longer.

Exclusive: Take a look inside The Grand apartments [PHOTOS]
The old Traders on Grand building has nearly completed its transformation into The Grand, a luxury apartment complex that boasts amenities like Downtown's highest rooftop pool, an attached dog park/dog shower, a game room and movie theater in a former vault.
...
One vestige of the bank — the drive-through — will remain as part of the new project and will serve a yet-to-be-identifed coffee shop. The two outer lanes of the drive-through will become ITMs — an internet-based hybrid cousin of the ATM.

Mark Moberly, Sunflower’s director of development, said it was important to use the drive-through space, given that there are so few around Downtown and that it's unlikely more will be built.
...
The project includes 201 luxury apartments over 11,000 square feet of commercial space, said Aaron Mesmer of Block Real Estate Services.

Rents range from $1,300 for a studio to one-bedrooms starting at $1,400 to two-bedrooms starting at $2,000 and three high-end penthouses.
...
The project also includes something elusive to many downtown projects: ample parking. The Grand offers three parking options, with two garages and one parking lot. The lot attached to the building also includes a car vacuum and a tire air pressure station.
...
The complex also will include "the Elevation" — the top floor will include a lounge (with a kitchen and seating area) and a pool, the highest rooftop pool in Kansas City.

Unit amenities include full-size washer and dryers, stainless steel appliances, Nest thermostats, quartz counters and islands, and walk-in closets in most units. Mesmer said the kitchen also includes 42-inch cabinets, which are larger than most apartments and closer to those found in a home.

No. It's not important Mark Moberly. They are not needed in a downtown area. They are anti-urban and pedestrian unfriendly.

What is needed is to build actual structures on the space where the former bank drive-through lanes are. You could have probably constructed an entire additional wing there for your building, and created even more apartments.

Based on the design the elevator and stairwell shafts are behind that wall. Expanding from that space would have been extremely expensive.

Driving past this building today I was wondering if they were done with the exterior, especially that eastern part. Does it look shabby to anyone else? Its a $70 million project.

That area isn't entirely an elevator shaft, judging by the new windows punched through the brick
