Didn't someone try to plan a meetup at one point? I think someone got into a debate over if we should put our usernames on a nametag or real names and I decided the amount of alcohol I'd have to drink is unhealthy. This was like a decade ago though.

Probably the closest to a recent meetup of anything pro-KC online activists would be the two streetcar celebrations. I met a number of people between both.

Im2Kull came out of nowhere to claim being the mayor. If the person is truly the mayor, they are fine with us knowing.

Is this what the KCRag Official Meetup is going to look like?

Creepy and desperate -or- just not trendy enough so as to be interesting?

I think I'll pass.

Sidebar, I proposed to my wife beneath Liberty Memorial the night of the streetcar opening celebration. Thanks for the free ambience, DaveKCMO!

Is the topic still the glass?

Lol


I'm still confused on what and where this project is exactly tbh.

Are we still going with it being the HRBlock 2 space?

Yes, we can now discuss the glass freely.

Bummer he left, but I saw that coming as I'm sure many others did too. He kind of brought it on himself by being somewhat the aggressor by blowing off issues we thought were important or calling people out that didn't agree with him, but when people started talking about his real identity, it was just a matter of days.

I thought it was cool that he really didn't put on a show. He was just another member of the forum that cared about the city. We got the perspective from a real developer who is there to make money first.

Good thing is he will still read the forums. The guy truly seems to have the best interest of KC at heart. He won't be able to stay away from these forums. So hopefully he continues to take constructive criticism back to his co-workers.

Despite all my criticisms, I still applaud cordish for what they have and continue to do for Downtown.

Though the controversy has been plans for 6 rather mundane buildings looking about the same, not specifically about glass. But since it's all glass...

So we know the two lots along Truman have towers earmarked
As a count, that's to #4

The 1300 block of Main takes us to #5

The midland has a short tower but it was on the list before 6 towers were being discussed. Name wise it could make sense, logically I'm not so sure.

The buildings south of the P&L building (14th W of Baltimore) could be a spot. DST owns this land and they've talked about selling. If #4 doesn't become a hotel this spot is well positioned with both the streetcar and convention district for this purpose.

The auto repair shop p;arcel at Truman/Main seems like another good candidate. It's physically about the same size as the P&L building.
