Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Interestingly there's pick up on both levels. That's a trick at a lot of airports with upper and lower roads. If you don't have checked bags, why go downstairs? Depending on the airport, time of day, how many flights are landing at the same time, it's a lot easier not to have to deal with a mass of...

I know somebody that works at the new nuclear bomb parts plant in SKC. They are building a second building across the highway.

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

Considering how it seems the Downtown KC office market seems strong, I don’t believe that this thing is dead. Maybe the plans were sold off to another developer other than Copaken. Hopefully people get answers soon. I’m honestly starting to worry we are going to be short tower cranes. They’re expen...

Not trying to argue. I mean call it what you want.

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Re: Three Light

I think putting the parking underground is great, but I don't see why Cordish would do that since it will add a lot of expense to the project. Why wouldn't they just add six more floors and keep the garage above ground? Again, I hope it goes below ground. That would be one big parking pedestal front...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

100M was reported incorrectly. It's at least 210M Routing traffic directly to 35 makes this whole situation more walkable. That sounds a little better. Would be hard to do this right for under 220-250 million. I have not spent a lot of time following this project, I went back and looked at the prop...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

The Bond Bridge only cost $25M? Really? I thought the bridge itself was closer to $75M and the entire project (all of the interchanges up north to the 35/29 split was something like $250M. Maybe I'm completely misremembering. But $25M sounds awfully affordable. Originally I had typed 250m but then ...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

Fingers crossed Price Tag: $100 million MARC: $40 million KCMO and MO to split the rest. So really this is cutting down the project so that MO State doesn't have to pay their share. :( IIRC, all of the proposals involved a sizable interchange around I35. Ideally, this shoots straight into I35 with ...

Re: OFFICIAL - New Downtown YMCA (former Lyric Theater)

I have never really liked this project and now that it's nearing completion, I really don't like it. I have always thought the YMCA should be part of a new construction tower or something. This is just so awkward looking with how it scales to the old facade and the rest of the block. And what is goi...

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

I was not expecting this at all. I think it looks great and will break up the monotony of all the pure glass buildings going up nearby. I like how they put the garage behind glass. I kind of wonder if the garage facade will look that good. I guess it will be a ventilated garage?

Downtown Denver now has over 11,000 hotel rooms with 1000 more under construction. Pretty impressive.

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Wow, for a major event, this is one of the most amateurish proposals I have ever seen and it’s sells KC extremely short too. I could have put together a better proposal in thirty minutes. Somebody majorly dropped the ball here. That was just awful.

^^^ I think that we can get to that level of growth in the next 15-20 years if we keep up our current momentum. We have to keep focusing on growing downtown and the urban core.

Nashville has like 30 cranes up downtown. 30 different cranes than it had a few years ago. Downtown Nashville has at least tripled in size in less than ten years.
