Parking lot desert.

I wish they would have kept that art deco facade (Soakie's building)

What's that lost building behind the Soakie's building?

That's the Jack Frye Training Center.
It served as TWA's pilot training facility in Kansas City.
Along with classrooms, offices, printing and filming facilities, it also included multiple realistic flight simulators.

I enjoy days like this downtown with so many things going on. County Road’s signage is going up, the districts big screen is coming down and various other crews here and there.

Nice, will have to get down and check out the Country Road signage. What's going on with the big screen? Upgrades?

Yes, the districts production manager told me new big screen is going up. He said it’s over twice the size and 150% better quality. He said they purchased a new top of the line sound system last year and this was needed to bring the video up to par.
