Widening I-70

The dreaded discussion (for many) heats up again. State Senator Bill Eigel (R-Weldon Spring) has pre-filed a bill to explore using money from the State's $6 Billion surplus, and taking 2% of general revenues ($300 million this year) each year for 10 years, to yield $9 Billion to expand I-70 from STL...

Re: On-going downtown development projects

Target is actively looking at downtown. I heard about one potential location they’ve been supposedly looking at and a previously looked at location. I imagine they’ll be down there within the next few years.

City website says you can only do that up until 5pm 6 days before the hearing. This one occurs on the 6th, so that deadline has passed. Additional comments in support or against can be made in person at the meeting on the 6th.

CompassKC got a new upload that includes only letters against. Here's a summary Old Hyde Park Neighborhood Association - Wants more parking because 183 spaces for 450 bedrooms in an area with little parking will cause major congestion and parking issues. The scale is also too large for the neighborh...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

How depressing is that first shot? Great pic just zero life. Beyond it just being cold, and taking these pictures just before rush hour, it feels even more dead around there than it did back when I arrived in August and through October. I guess the cold plays a role in that but still, it doesn't ma...

Re: 10th and Main Southwest Corner (former transit center)

I have no new updates to share, but decided to see what the views would be like from the top floor of this building. I forgot about how tall the building would be and believe, after looking at the recent rendering, I just barely overshot the height by a little bit. Regardless, I'd say the views this...

I took these today. The views from the top floor of this place (if they're still doing a rooftop bar) will be nice. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52534611396_c4dd415369_h.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52534600101_694d42edea_h.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52535141738_f30446...

Re: 1822 Main Redevlopment

I may be a bit off with these photos, but this is roughly the view top floor units in this building will have. I'm not 100% confident in the view for a number of reasons, mostly because I've seen this building being listed as 12-stories and others say it's 14. These are the views from a 14th floor. ...

Re: KC in TV and Movies

They did a good job with that short movie. Really captured the grittiness of the West Bottoms and fused it with a decent story line. I think it could’ve been a little bit longer, but it was good.

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...

We don't have runoffs, just nonpartisan primaries. You don't a majority to advance. I believe all candidates will appear on the...
