Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

Not to take us too far off topic, but a pedestrianized Nichols Rd through the heart of the Plaza is the pedestrian street you seek. ROW wide enough to add additional seating, shops, food, etc in the middle of the street. Could really help invigorate things. (Particularly once new apartments are bui...

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. That airport has little effect on the bridge structure. I mean you can't build a 200' tall bridge structure, but you can easily build a lower profile bridge super structur...

Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

The unimaginative minds of Americans never fail to amaze me. You're given a blank canvas, and that's all you can come up with? LOL Show us your proposal Go google photos of any European city core. You'll find that nearly every city has a landmark pedestrian street full of activity. Tons of retail, ...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

We always need a good "kc can't do anything" grid shaming. Lol I was simply saying that you could build a nice bike path around KCI and build a nice park on the south side of the west runway and really add to the recreational infrastructure of the area. Lots of cities have similar parks/trails at a...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

KC needs fewer highways, not more. This bridge redesign works to further the cause of adding highways everywhere, regardless of need. The bridge's replacement needs to have a modest design to provide access to the downtown airport, and should be pursuant to redirecting through-traffic to the Bond B...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Yes KCI police monitoring land by runway approaches is why kansas city can't accomplish anything. Take a break my friend. huh? I didn't say that. What are you talking about.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

I get what you are saying but moving 169 to the west side of the airport is not an option. Talk about getting in the way of the airport. They just needed to make 169 transition into a city street and stop trying to make it an interstate, but everybody's main goal is to have it be an interstate. Bec...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

Funny thing is it's going to be over capacity the second it opens as it's designed right now. Especially northbound during evenings. This plan will induce a lot of traffic from interstate routes and you will have basically one lane for Broadway and one lane for through freeway traffic merging on the...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

It's really sad to see. Why is it that highway architects think that our society values nothing above highways themselves? The north side of downtown has been savaged by these highways. We should be reducing highway real estate, not adding it. In my ideal world, 169 would veer to the west, followin...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Airport police is regularly out there running people off. The airport wants as few people as possible probing around the airport gates and fences. McHenry Park is good for plane watching and will get much better once the new terminal opens. it's true that the airport police in Kansas City are alway...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

I will say that KC is still a VERY underrated city on a national scale. Even with the chiefs and royals recent success, nobody outside of KC knows a thing about the actual city. It's actually easy to impress people with a first time visit to KC because they expect so much less than what the city act...

I didn't think about it before, but the parking garage is going to be a great place to watch planes because there won't be anything between it and most of the airfield.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

I swear if kcrag ran the city, every single “superfluous” element of the cityscape would be stripped down to nothing because it’s saving someone somewhere a few bucks. Guess they should’ve put a drop ceiling over the plaster ceiling in union station instead of restoring it. God knows how much money...

Sheraton is/was the only property not open to guests. DT Marriott closed for a couple weeks I think I was just wondering. Trying to get an idea of how bad hotels are doing. I still see a lot of hotels that are closed, not just in KC. I think hotels will come roaring back to normal, it's probably ju...
