The best method to redevelop the East Village is us...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

It could be moved to the Randolph Bottoms and still be an amenity. Still close, but doesn't interfere with downtown structures.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

so can those simple architectural elements be added to the bridge? I assume they serve no support functions, just aesthetics, which is fine. Anything to punch up the design a little. This bridge is the main entry way to to city for most of the people coming from the airport to downtown. They really...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

Is there anything that can be done to add some kind of aesthetics to bridge to give it some more design "pop" are architectural elements?

Re: Downtown Casino

Without a casino, a residency-type "mall" of performance venues still could work. It would differentiate it from the Midland and the Folly. Longer-run shows could make use of the smaller theaters as they could be used for comedians, magic shows, spoken artist, and author events. The larger theater c...

I would think KC and STL(and STJ, etc) have an interest in keeping river boat gaming. Maybe a happy medium would be “within 2 miles” of the river.
I think a major flood disaster might change the rule about being near the river. Ameristar is just a levee break from physical ruin.
