How about making Mainstreet Theater a permanent location for Quixotic? I would go as often to see a performance of theirs as I would a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse.
I'd love this especially if it was still mixed with a small cinema
Tivoli/Quixotic combination?
Yes, get out of my head!!

Re: OFFICIAL - Reverb (1800 Walnut)

It’s not unreasonable to believe that amenities aren’t always needed and not having them can drive activity in the neighborhood, however it is clear at this price point that is not the case in Kansas City. There are plenty of properties without amenities in downtown but none that expensive. It just ...

Re: Inclusionary Zoning

Lucas, this ordinance, etc have already had a big negative impact on our development and job attraction prospects. Saw a note this morning that a $150 million, 400 unit downtown apartment project that was in the works has been cancelled by the national developer. Port KC's broker announced that a $...

Would still have some retail space available as all their residential buildings will. Just wouldn’t replace the exact amount that’s currently there.
The increase in population would support more retail elsewhere, we still have empty spaces anyways

Very open as residential demand may continue to outpace traditional retail. They will also be numbered in the order they’re built regardless of location.
They would still have ground floor retail though right?

Re: Four Light

A fairly reliable source told me that 5 light could happen before 4 light because it will have more affordable apartments on a smaller foot print. But the great news is 5 light would replace this nothing retail building at 14th & main. The hotel president will have a worthy neighbor and this inters...

If the case you'd think the next one built would still be called 4 Light no matter the location.
Agreed

Re: Politics

I don’t think lifted trucks will go away either until electric has a suitable replacement. What I could see them doing is taxing trucks with low gas mileage heavier, and handing out tax breaks or allowing people to write it off if they use it for work. My guess is we will probably see fewer cars lik...

Re: Politics

I think GM, Chrysler, Ford are going to slowly move their cars to all-electric platforms. By 2030, I expect most of their lineups will include stuff like that. Hybrid versions of the cars will also become much more widespread. However, for everyone to switch to all electric cars, the batteries need...

Re: Politics

My guess is the tax will come to include the negative externality of pollution. So it won’t go away but will be more expensive.

Re: Politics

If oil prices go up people will be more likely to switch away from combustion vehicles, especially now that there is a doable charging network for many cities and electric vehicles to choose from. Let’s focus on infrastructure for the coming century.

How much density would they need to expand the streetcar through quality hill to west bottoms Not sure if a question of density versus needing a regional plan in place.
