Re: Misc Crossroads News

Was recently able to walk and explore around the crossroads when I visited KC again, and I have to say While the actual building hasn’t been that impressive in the last few years (although certainly nothing to sneeze at) the number of shops and restaurants feels much higher than it used to.

Re: Main & Armour - Mac Properties

Mains going to be so much nicer if it’s down to three lanes, will also completely transform it with the extra wide sidewalks and street trees. Currently one of the worst streets to walk in Midtown immediately going to the best

Re: Main & Armour - Mac Properties

Good to hear that the New Yorker renovation is back in the picture. It wasn't mentioned last night like the southwest corner of Armour and Baltimore was. So really, this project's scope potentially grew in scale since it was initially unveiled, only it was split apart. Seems live a much bigger win ...

Really like the density and scale, hope this gets off the ground, and remaining lots in the crossroads are also this dense

Are we really worried about ‘wokeism’ when the former republican president sold state secrets and is a traitor?

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

I think a mixed use readaptation of their offices with residential could really liven up that area by Union Station. Could be a really good opportunity to get rid of some parking lots even if it’s slightly dissapointing that it’s not a new employer. However the old building could be used as affordab...

Would definitely be down for a gondola with a tower station, would be crazy futuristic. Should try to find city land where they could request proposals to develop mixed use towers

Re: Metro Multi-Family Construction

Does anyone think the KCMO should zone some high-density residential multiuse zones in undeveloped places in the Northland now before subdivisions are completely built out? This would be to intervene before the NIMBYs that will come are there to oppose it? Yes and create a high zone district around...

The world urban forum was just in Katowice which is a small city without great transport links. I think KC could definitely get it. Maybe we could coincide a big event with decommissioning the north loop

Would also be interested in seeing how we could set up a recurring summit similar to the world cities summit which focuses on good urbanism. Chris if you end up getting serious about trying to snag or start an event like this for Kansas City, I’m very willing to put time in to help

Re: 13th and Grand tower

Welcome! Love the design, would love to see something like that get built there, would really be the next major step for the skyline.

Maybe you could shop it around a bit to see if there’s any takers
