It does look like the name is stupid obvious and you know what you're getting when you go there.

What does Affaire sell just based off the name?

What does it matter what Affaire sells? I haven't seen anyone complain that the "Streetcar" name doesn't indicate what it is. It's just follows a pattern of general lack-of-creativity in the naming convention of "Location"/"Bar/Grille/Tavern/Grill/Ye Olde Tavern & Grille/Cafe/etc.)

I think it sort of says "We think whatever we put here will print money regardless of whether it is half-baked."

PNC establishes a presence in the Crossroads

Kind of a cool pop up store gimmick

New construction of a food hall and twin pavilions at 18th and Grand will bring groceries and more than 500 underground parking spaces to Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District. Hollis + Miller Architects.

I'd be interested in a little more interaction with the corner, especially on Grand. But, of course, this is pretty cool. Just nitpicking because that's what we do here.

Heard tonight that an "underground garage" is in the works for 18th and Oak. I assume this would be on the surface lots owned by SMG. The person who told me this was sort of singularly obsessed with parking, so who knows what the full development would look like.

I suspect this person could have been confusing it with the Star project one short block away. I was pretty surprised to hear about a different garage when nothing had been reported.

Menlo Inc, the recently founded parent company for k12itc, a fast growing tech company based in the Northland, is looking to move to 2110 Grand. They currently have 45 employees and are planning to grow to 60 within a year. They are seeking a tax abatement.

Here is the building:

I believe this property was added to the East Crossroads PIEA district several years ago.

Time to make the reallocation of space on Oak permanent as more stuff moves in. Exciting times!
