Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

Pedestrian spaces do not inherently draw pedestrians. They need to be in spaces where the pedestrian traffic is already intense. For instance, Times Square’s pedestrianization works because it’s a tourist attraction in Midtown Manhattan, so there were always going to be crowds no matter what. KC, li...

You want me to try and explain MoDot thinking? I have no idea.
Then what makes you so sure the new bridge is the only way to get north loop removal?

Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

Go google photos of any European city core. You'll find that nearly every city has a landmark pedestrian street full of activity. Tons of retail, dining, and PEOPLE. That's probably a great place to start. There's a reason virtually every city in Europe has at least one major pedestrian street. If ...

City already built a nice park for recreation and plane watching on their land south of the airport gate.
I can’t place where this is. Could you post a google maps link or something?

Re: New Broadway Bridge

I swear if kcrag ran the city, every single “superfluous” element of the cityscape would be stripped down to nothing because it’s saving someone somewhere a few bucks. Guess they should’ve put a drop ceiling over the plaster ceiling in union station instead of restoring it. God knows how much money ...

Re: Unruh Furniture

Wish the city could buy the stone walls of buildings like this and place them in parks as ruins. This and the First Christ Scientist church that was at 9th and Forest would fit well overlooking Penn Valley Park or somewhere. Many parks have these “follies” to add some character and intrigue to the l...

If you're going to allow casinos, why force them to be near a river which severely limits location options.

Re: Inclusionary Zoning

Another incentives restriction ordinance is before council. This one would limit the length and % of incentives. I think a third is still lurking in the background.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

I wish this project wasn’t holding north loop removal hostage. We should be able to get the stupid thing removed without compromising with the rest of this awful freeway system. We should be removing all urban freeways

ULI Hines Finalists were announced this morning. You can view all of the entries at

of note: only 6 of 105 entries included a baseball stadium. Though two baseball stadium concepts made it to the finals.
