Here's the real rendering. It's going to be the home of the new Johnny Kaws World Headquarters.

It looks like a hospital to me hospitals give me the creeps. I like having the bar there now that is one of the best spots to sit and watch city people.

Ahh, Darlene, do you remember when we sat on that patio on a warm winter day and shared potato salad? One of my fondest memories. I'll never forget those cute shoes you wore.

I think this is the appropriate Westport shoe:

No, I don't think we know each other.

Must be another Darlene. Or perhaps, it was Darlin'. Too many of those farmhouse ales!

Local breakfast/lunch chain will open 13th area location in Westport
The Big Biscuit, a breakfast and lunch restaurant chain that started in 2000, is busy building four new locations throughout the region, but it's most interesting addition might be the closest to home.

According to The Kansas City Star, the Overland Park-based chain is building two locations in Springfield and one in Topeka. However, it also has taken over the former Fusion Buffett Sushi & Hibachi space at 4039 Mill St. in Westport.

I'm still holding out hope for Denver Biscuit Co. to open in Westport. Hopefully a local/regional biscuity name entering the same neighborhood doesn't spook them.

I heard Denver Biscuit Co. / Atomic Cowboy is going into the old icehouse at 4140 Pennsylvania Ave

I think that's been the plan, and they have permits up on Compass but who knows how deep into things they actually are. I think with their DBC/Atomic Cowboy concept, they're still probably unique enough to co-exist.

The retail building on the SE corner of 43rd and Main, which most recently housed Nature's Own grocery, is undergoing interior renovation.

Ragazza Food and Wine Will Reopen On
The date of Ragazza Food and Wine’s reopening has been one of the great mysteries of life—not unlike whether Tupac is really still alive or will the Chiefs win another Super Bowl. For owner Laura Norris, she promises soon. Like in-the-next-several-weeks-soon. (Pinky swear!)

This makes me very sad for Westport. Seriously it should be decommissioned as a bar district ...leave Kelly's, Harry's, and one more and shut down the rest.
i checked out johnny kaws on twitter and about bombed my keyboard with vomit. i really thought westport was going logan square / wicker park and catering more to the urban thirties and up crowd. i think i break out in hives when i get too close to a midwestern (state) college crowd bar/party district. i think westport/midtown needs some more new, attractive infill projects (thinking much more dense detached/attached single/two/three family like those renderings of the west side stuff) to get more of a dense neighborhood vibe.

downtowns are supposed to have the areas that get powerwashed on monday mornings.

johnny kaws is like a Jason Sudeikis parody skit on going out in westport in the 00s or something. i cannot believe that's real. i'm having flashbacks of walking past americas pub or something and bros wanting to punch me because i had shaggy hair..
