Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Seems to be quiet. Have you had your hearing checked lately? What I mean is relative to how it was yesterday night. There wasn’t that many problems from what I heard on the police scanner or saw in the Live Feeds on Fox 4 and KMBC. Sure, there was some loud events, but by “quiet” I mean not as many...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Don't be surprised if the shit hits the fan on the Plaza tonight. Things are getting seriously ugly right now and escalating. It will be heartbreaking if they burn portions of the Plaza. A huge majority of protesters are there peacefully, it's the minority within that group that wants to cause the ...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

The only construction company I can really think of with the ability to develop something is JE Dunn. They’ve worked with Cordish on building the Light towers, so maybe Cordish is involved in some way but is trying to hide future intentions by working directly with their preferred KC builder.

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

There's really no reason, to me at least, why they couldn't have finished assembling the crane today. All the pieces are on site.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt House (900 Broadway)

Can the debate over the coronavirus, politics and other stuff be done on the dedicated threads. I understand that this conversation is somewhat in regards to hotels, but there are appropriate threads to debate this.

Re: Saxon at the Midland (formerly Midland Office Building)

One less vacant building in Downtown KC. Big win here. It's great that many downtown vacant buildings are being reactivated. Every time one starts and opens, it's another step toward building new buildings in Downtown.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt House (900 Broadway)

Found this online last night. Date at the bottom of the rendering is July 9th, 2018, a few weeks before the project was announced/found (July 24th, 2018). I wonder if this is the design we are getting or if we are still getting the design with the glass rooftop areas. This is a simpler design but ke...

Re: Aladdin--boutique hotel by Holiday Inn

According to Trip Advisor, the hotel is "temporarily" closed until December 30th. It's also no longer on the property list for IHG hotels in KC. Is this property under renovation or is this an extended closure due to corona? Reviews on google appear to be mostly positive (averages out to be 4 star) ...

According to the Brass on Baltimore website, Hotel KC is supposed to open on August 27th according to their website. Not sure if that's new information.

Re: KC Spirit Playbook - KC's New 20 Year Plan

Clicking through some of the ideas people have on the map is interesting. Most are good points with ideas that seem doable.

The more people commenting, the better.
