I imagine that's up in the air at this point. The concept map had lines and end points for the purpose of having them on the map and showing people there would be multiple stops.

Like their northland station would be roughly I-29 and Tiffany Springs Pkwy. It's not a real point by any means.

Follow I-70 to Van Brunt and then take it down, or under, 31st street. Straight line and a good spot for an urban station somewhere along the streetcar line. You could have a major suburban station by the stadium complex. Plenty of space.

Good. Glad to see some real density being proposed. Union (suburban style) developments don’t bring enough to the table to warrant a streetcar line imho.

The architecture firm appears to have taken it off their site entirely. It appears they didn't want it seen widely, or maybe it was cancelled by the developer, and the architecture firm had just not taken it down yet. It was listed under "On the Boards." The developer was Star Developments.

From my memory, it was two 10-12 story residential towers surrounded by a base of what appeared to be townhouses on the north and one- or two-stories of retail on the south. I assume a hidden garage sat in the middle of the block. The facade was three contrasting colors I think. I was an attractive building. It sat on the first parcel east of the Union apartments.

The townhouses were separated from the tower block. There must be an alley running behind them. A retail building on the south might have also been separate from the apartment tower--separated by an alley or walkway.

Port KC has multiple LOI’s for additional housing and a hotel on lot #3 (empty site adjacent to Union). Not sure if the images above are related to said LOI’s.

A beer garden type development is planned to go into the park - near the streetcar station.
