density mix is good for the neighborhood...especially given the plans for the rest of the block.

I can see that, if he ends up with a wrapped garage, Ill be incredibly happy. However if there is a surface lot for the townhouse parking, idk it just seems lazy and dumb. I'll still be happy to have a smaller parking lot, just seems like a wasted opportunity.
If the townhouses are flushed to the existing and a garage and the rest of the development this block could be awesome.

the townhouses will have their own attached garage. I agree there shouldn't be a surface lot left on this block if done right.

I saw the liquor license for that a few weeks back while making database updates for a charity pub crawl. Couldn't find any info whatsoever about it.

The license I pulled was at the state level. I like to use those because I can filter them to get exactly what I need, then import them directly into my DB. KCMO's report is easier to read, but since it's a PDF it makes for a lot of copying and pasting.

PRIMARY LICENSE 248901
PRIMARY TYPE RBD
LICENSEE SECOND NATURE CONCEPTS LLC
DBANAME TRIBE
STREET NUMBER 316
STREET DELAWARE STREET


No info about "Second Nature Concepts" either except that it was created in May.

Really nice - I don't mind that kind of old timey architecture at all!

Looks good - is that project actually happening or just a preliminary rendering

Looks good. I'm not a huge fan of the faux historical roofline, but whatever. Give it 20 years, and people will think it's actually historical, like the BOA building in Westport. I'm just glad that gravel lot will be gone

Isn't this lot owned by the Centropolis people?

Looks really good. I love how they broke the mass up into three smaller bays. The size makes sense for the area. I think NSPJ does some really great work.

thanks for pointing out the uberugly townhomes "coming soon" sign. Had not seen that and will change immediately.
yes we celebrate diversity and increased density for this area given the ToD nature of our goals....done right of course and comments always welcome.
yes the townhomes will have attached garages....facades will be updated and tastefully (hopefully everyone's taste) varied to create some dynamic.

I know...we feel the demand. will end up as 2-3 bedroom units (3rd in lower level) with outdoor patios and 2 car garage as noted. Start Q1.

How does this impact some of your denser proposals for the block, if at all?

It does impact density....negatively. We want variety in all ways. Singles, families, empty nesters, professionals, creatives, etc. the demand we have here started with young families. Glad to see that in the RM.

And we are not your typical "developers". I do not abide by "highest and best use" the mantra of architects. I believe in best use, period.

Yes, the rest of the block will have higher density as we approach the taller existing structures.
