They could easily design a City Target concept with apartments/offices/restaurants in the north loop or even in the Crossroads.

Does anyone know if they still plan to wrap the garage with artwork? I believe they did not take any panels off when they began erecting the garage and now they have vents where the artwork would be according to the rendering.

Take a look at the renderings on twolightkc.com. Art is planned for the three floors without windows in your picture and the north wall, I believe.

Yea, I know that it's primarily on the north side of the building but it does wrap around the west side and it would take up the top 4 floors of the garage according to the rendering. There are vents where the artwork is on the photo which makes me wonder if it's changed. I'm probably thinking too much into it but I've met the artist and watched him paint it and I would HATE for it to be forgotten.

I think the rendering in the video is more inline with what is actually being constructed:

oh, one i forgot to post yesterday. I took it with my cellphone at night so it's not the best picture but still... This view from inside of the PNL is going to be amazing when all 4 are done in a few years.

The lower few levels have a pretty drab looking grey facade. Is that the finished product or something going over it? Not a major complaint but about as low brow as it can go.

I know a similar pic was uploaded a few days ago, but I doubt you guys mind. The scale of the building is really impressive.

How many floors are completed so far? Looking forward to the start of three light's construction as well.

Based on the latest photo they're up to the floor of 13 and 14 for the elevator shaft.

Looks like the patio is at level 8

For people that aren't in KC, or haven't been down to PnL lately, I'd just like to say that in my opinion the difference is going to be incredible. I can't even imagine if we get to four or five light.

I loved seeing One Light go up and it did a lot to freshen up downtown, but it never felt like a huge change to me. Two light seems different. It feels really substantial.

I know there's been a lot of talk about the "cordish wall", but I guarantee you won't care once you spend time in downtown. Having height on that side running east/west is going to completely change downtown, but especially the PnL area.

Most of you probably already know this, but I thought I'd share my enthusiasm for the project since pictures don't really do it justice.

I was downtown for about 15 minutes Saturday and at ~50% height it's already changing the feel of that area in a noticeable way.

The big change will be the foot traffic. There really was no reason to move E-W along Truman Road and that's going to change.
