Re: Boring Company tech to help untangle highway mess

The limestone layers, both the Winterset and the Bethany Falls groups, are thick, sturdy, and level. They would be the best candidates for deep tunnel boring through KC. However, midtown and downtown represent significant plateaux, requiring any north-south route that would pass under the east-west...

Neat how they turned US 61 north of St. Louis and State Route 63 in Indiana into interstates.

Re: Quiktrip

I'm still a bit surprized that QT would consider it after the recent remodel down the street (87th & Farley). That being said, it is a perfect location for such a thing. I wouldn't be surprised if it closed with little warning once the new one is open. They did exactly that in Shawnee when they ope...

Re: OFFICIAL - Grand Place (former KC Star building)

I'm a little surprised the tweaked plans included more office space, given Covid-19 and its effects on work-from-home growth.

So they have single-family homes with office towers essentially in their backyards... how is that going to sell, exactly?

Re: Shawnee is in here

I understand resistance to the size and location, but there's an awful lot of people in Shawnee who like to complain about "crime" and throw around "Section 8" like it's a slur anytime someone tries to build an apartment complex in town. I wish something could be done to replace the storage units, p...

Re: Lions Choice

Update, since I know you were all on tenterhooks waiting for one: I had to get some home improvement stuff, so I decided to drive down to Menards in Olathe so I could get Lion's Choice on the way home. It was much improved over my last visit. The meat in my beef and cheddar was nice and pink. If it ...

Re: Lions Choice

As someone who loves Lion's Choice when in St. Louis, the Independence and Olathe locations have left me disappointed because the beef is way overcooked. Maybe that's on me for not asking for it to be rare, but my beef and cheddar sandwiches have had no pink at all to the meat, whereas the ones I ge...

The Planning Commission will review the developer’s request to make major revisions to the plan at tomorrow night’s meeting. The original proposal was for 530 apartments, but that’s been scaled back to “up to” 343 units. They would also like to keep the old Dillon’s building and reuse it. Demolition...
