Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

nice to see business lining up even before it's open. This should help create a ripple effect to help the other new & established hotels in the downtown through Plaza area. This will lead to extra dollars into the local community and taxes revenue from simple sales taxes on purchases. Love to see t...

Re: OFFICIAL - Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

I give it +5 points for no tacky rooftop signage. Hopefully they are including some architectural lighting. Agreed. Rooftop signs are glorified billboards and are especially egregious when they distract from architecture As a counterpoint, I always enjoy visiting other cities and learning from sign...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Considering the location and being next to a freeway, the big boxes of the convention center etc, it seems fine to me as far as urban street interaction. It's a business convention hotel with its own giant ballroom box and parking garage. I honestly think it looks pretty good for what it is and the...

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

I wanted to be wrong so bad. Lucas Funkhowser will grind this city to a halt if he is unaware of the need/importance of Strada. These comments alone are a horrible look for our city. Imagine what any developer/investor must think when seeing these quotes in the paper.No one will be willing to invest...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

I fear a near Funkhowser freeze coming to DTKC development. DT is, and always should be, the economic engine for this area. We cannot lose the momentum already created under the leadership of Sly. Someday we may not need TIF, as for now I feel we still do. I am a 56 year old northlander who is enjoy...

Re: Union Station

I walked through last week. It looks nice. I just wish they found a way to open up the DT skyline to the north part of US. The view would be great and you could have a window for watching trains. Kids would love it. Absolutely true!!! My Dad worked below on the station platforms for 30 years. 3;00 ...

^Inappropriately smug for a tragedy. Maybe an explanation will suffice. I am simply praying for the one lost as well as their family. The verse from Psalms brings me strength during hard times. Hardly inappropriate or smug. What would be inappropriate would be to argue a horrible, tragic death. I w...

I want tall buildings. All the infill is nice, but the skyline last changed when they built the skylons Uh, you don’t count the Lights or Kauffman Center or Loews as part of the skyline? I consider a real skyline changer a 30 plus business tower. I say business tower because of the difference betwe...

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

There is far more to be said about building a signature 50+ floor tower downtown then just saying "but it will only fill one block." Signature towers put a downtown on the forefront to the local business community with a strong statement. They spur much more peripheral development than smaller proj...
