For instance, perhaps we can offer incentives to a project which saves the building but mo...

Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

Re: 5th and Main (Northwest Corner)

It would be insane not to go with the 12 story proposal. The 5 story is ok, and certainly better than nothing, but there’s zero energy in the design. Looks very Zona Rosa to me

Re: Bridging Park & Market

Re: TheLastGentleman Goes Downtown

Gentleman: Exactly where were you standing when you took that shot of the KCPL lantern? More detail is observable than when one is standing on the parapet directly below.
