Re: Southmoreland

I'm surprised this one flew under the radar. I guess 31st and Main was a good distraction and the new condos South of the Plaza distracted us further. It's a shame to lose what looked like a fine building. The lot will likely remain in its current form for several years. I'm astounded by how the are...

It appears a small hotel or something is planned at 1518 Oak Street.

Re: 2023 KCMO Election

Based on who's running and which races are crowded, I can see the 4th and 6th In-District races advancing to runoffs, same with the At-Large races in Districts 2, 4 and 5. We don't have runoffs, just nonpartisan primaries. You don't a majority to advance. I believe all candidates will appear on the...

Re: 2023 KCMO Election

More candidates have jumped into the race, so I feel like I should make a list of all who is running and where. I tried to include their campaign websites. If I'm missing anyone, let me know. I never realized all council seats are up for election, unless I'm reading it wrong. Candidates that are bol...

The project goes before the KCK City Landmarks Commission on December 5, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom, so I imagine images will be shared then

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

IcelandAir adding Detroit I’m think they bring us back once they get their entire Max fleet up, weren’t nearly all their flights full coming out of here? Who'd want to go to Reykjavik? Seems like a boring place unless 1: they have a connecting flight the same day to Europe and 2: It's decently affo...

Re: Downtown KCK

If Strawberry Hill people really end up bitching about something at the Grund Hotel site/6th and Ann, then that's truly unfortunate. It's downtown at that point. I know the plan is for 6-stories which is appropriate. Strawberry Hill has caught wind and does have "issues" with it. This is ...

Re: Urban Living Pet Peeves

BUILD. A. MEDIAN!!!! You stop it with that common sense. Realistically though, you don’t want to be putting in hard infrastructure like that, that’ll require concrete pours, while it’s going into winter. Id imagine they’re pursuing something along those lines for the future though If done right, me...

Re: West Bottoms Redevelopment

Pretty wild to think that, from what we know publicly, the West Bottoms will have a ton of new residents in the next 15 years if all the planned and underway projects happen. SomeraRoad has 1166 apartments in their massive plans. Phases 1 and 2 of West Bottoms Flats yields 355 total units. 1500 St. ...

It depends on the parking situation. I'm going with 5 floors of apartments above retail and lobby, so 6 total. With integrated parking, I'll say 7.

What wouldn't be done today?
More so than just the outrageous cost, I’d say safety/security plays a role. Having a stadium where 30,000+ can get together would be a target for less than desirable people who are crazy enough to be on a mission of terror.
