Re: North Plaza Hotel- 46th and Broadway

The wrappings are off the exterior of the west building and the result is....something that could be on any perimeter freeway in any city in the USA. I would love it if non-traditional colors were allowed in the Plaza. Sheraton pink is worn down but its the right idea. Vibrant buildings surrounding...

Name a spot in the RM that you can build the Ferris Wheel on that wouldn't be better used for a building. Would be a cool area for it maybe a little sleepy though!

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Maybe not. Gameday will be associated with crowds/traffic and trying to find parking. Just like it is now. I don’t know why people think TSC is so convenient. It’s not at all. Granted a parking lot meant to hold cars for 70k and only 15k show up to see a baseball game is going to mean less traffic ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Pennway Point

Washington Square Park would have been a good choice Don't think a private group can operate a commercial facility at a park and directly north parcels will be developed eventually blocking the view. Pennway Point is one of if not the best sites for a ferriswheel that doesn't get obstructed by futu...

Re: OFFICIAL - Pennway Point

im usually a cheerleader for just about anything KC wants to build but this seriously sucks in every imaginable way. i hope this project fails to get off the ground... i mean, half of your ferris wheel experience will be viewing an underpass and the other half is watching traffic go by with one of ...

If I remember correctly the loads weren’t that great. 60s and 70s. I hope there is a better option out there though. Not that I don’t want a flig...
