Re: OFFICIAL: Power & Light District

These photos are amazing. I need to dig out my photos of the south side of downtown from the 90's for comparison.

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

I'm very much for lowering grade on HWY 9 and connecting the East & West sides of RIvermakret/Columbus Park. I liked the renderings they have shown on that. I'm also a big fan of removing the North Loop as well, or doing something different with it. However I'm not 100% sure how that will work ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

If north loop changes and bringing down 9 way isn't "something" man I don't know what could be. Those are huge for the downtown neighborhoods. Yes more than how fast people zip around downtown if they don't want to be going downtown. There was nothing romantic about coming across the buck...

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

We may be gaining a new bridge, but we will be losing a celebration of downtown. But the goal of the new bridge is to not have to touch your brakes as you pass by downtown and barley even know you are in a downtown while doing so. Mission accomplished. And yeah the bridge park idea was just somethi...

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

Anyway it's a done deal now. Maybe the views of downtown will be pretty neat from the flyovers at least.

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

It wasn't just modot that said that though? KCMO and MARC were also planning partners in that study. Also Urban Land Institute, LOL at MARC. They are clueless. Pretty sure everybody that works for MARC lives in the burbs. Have you actually read any of their studies and stuff? And what have they rea...

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

It should have been disconnected from the loop totally, not connected more with giant high speed flyover ramps. The primary purpose of the new bridge should have been to bring 169 into downtown and have it simply turn into Broadway. But for some reason, everybody wanted I-35/29 traffic routed throug...

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

This bridge is going to be very unappealing in terms of design. I understand a lot of it has to do with building requirements of FAA & airport. Rest is at the hands of MODOT & politicians basically wanting to get it done to serve a function not be functional as well as have a nice design. I...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Half of these complainers (or more, probably more) are coming from Kansas. They don't care a thing about KCMO and their only concern is what's best for themselves exclusively. Then there's Jackson County suburbanites -- which I'm sure a good amount do complain, but atleast they respect KCMO the cit...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

It does seem like the Royals had to know that this would be the initial reaction and wanted to get out in front of it. Hopefully they will really start putting some good info out there for the public to get excited about. It seems like the Royals will be doing this without the Chiefs though. So the ...

It's just too bad he is now taking so much shit from the public via social media etc. I know people on here say social media doesn't matter, but no matter where I look it's like 80% ...

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

This project is insane with how long it has been gong on. I worked on the original project which seems was like 20 years ago. I guess walmart is no longer involved? It really does not seem like it should be that difficult to build. I don't see why this project even needs incentives.

Is MLB expanding? I have not heard anything about them expanding. Oakland and Tampa "still" trying to build stadiums, I can see one of them moving to Nashville.

Jackson County 717,000 Clay County 256,000 Platte County 110,000 Cass County 110,000 1.2 million people. Can probably do a lot with just the Missouri side. Or even just Jackson County.

People need to stop over indexing on the world cup. But it seems like such a great opportunity to do something in Jackson County like OKC did with MAPS for example. Or Denver did with TREX. A very large infrastructure upgrade to the county. Jackson County (especially between the RCP and TSC) needs ...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

It's so hard to get my head around this project and how serious it is. KC is a town that rarely has more than one tower crane up at time in its downtown. The P&L District is still probably 15 years from seeing a build out with a hotel and another apartment tower and that is literally all that ha...

On the bright side it won’t really matter for people on Main in a couple years atleast I went to UMKC and took buses to the campus from Crown Center where I worked several days a week and then would take a bus to my house in Waldo.

Re: Regional Transit Coordination

Come on. Every city is dealing with driver shortages etc and KC's bus system has been in a downward fall prior to the recent labor issues. Just excuses. Always excuses. Same with the lack of buses at KCI to rental car and parking. BWI still has plenty of buses. They find a way to make it work. Pay ...
