Re: Centene's East Coast Headquarters in Charlotte

Failure to carry through with the project in SL is, of course, bad news for the city. But I don't see how abandoning the Charlotte office project can be anything but good news for SL.

Centene's East Coast Headquarters in Charlotte

Good news for St. Louis. This has been dumped. IMHO, it was just a matter of time before Charlotte would become the headquarters and St. Louis an outpost.

Re: Freight House Podium Project - 20th and Walnut

Will Lux be building the proposed townhomes across Walnut from the apartments? I did see a remark about townhomes, but those weren't shown in the pics.

Re: Can KC Secede and join Kansas?

Regarding Missouri politics, Danforth is one of a group seeking an independent to support in the coming senate race in order to derail Greiten's bid. Glad to see Danforth doing something reasonable. https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/22/politics/missouri-super-pac-independent-candidate/index.html Doesn't m...

Re: Denver

Add to your list state capitol, not an insignificant contributor to growth, it seems. And, finally, add the difficult-to-measure, but very real, factor of cachet. Austin attained it. Nashville attained it. KC has not. Young people want to live someplace that other young people think is - well, I'm o...

Re: Arabia Steamboat Museum Looking for New Home

I don't understand the negative attitude on here toward the Arabia exhibit. Have you been? It is KC's 3rd largest tourist draw. Interesting stuff. People love it. It's apparently not in the best facility or location, either for the city or the museum. That doesn't warrant the "hasta la vista, b...

Re: Arabia Steamboat Museum Looking for New Home

Perhaps there's a very good reason, but why was PortKC not interested in this for Berkley Park? Or the Town of Kansas? This will be such a loss and no one seems to be interested in preventing it from happening.

Re: OFFICIAL - Pennway Point

Orlando is proof that competing entertainment venues can also feed/feed off one another. This will be good for KC. It can grow the pie and is no less worthy of incentives than P&L.
