Hearing rumors that TMC acknowledges it hasn't been the best friend of walkable urbanism and plans a "complete streets" style makeover.

I’m amazed that the various hospitals downtown haven’t jumped on board this system. Would fit perfectly with their “health” focus.

It's not quite as obvious as the hotel but the Children's Mercy project is moving along.

Today they're moving materials or equipment onto the roof level of the garage and have forms up for new walls onto another part of the complex.

They've been doing a lot of concrete work on the Children's Mercy project, probably the elevator shaft and what looks like a new entrance on the NW corner.

There's a building coming down at 22nd and Charlotte and there's a second University Health building planned for the site.
