Re: Misc Crossroads News

I would hate to see this get demolished

EDIT: Never mind, looks like they're probably just talking about the building that's almost under the viaduct

Re: Companies moving downtown

What a shame to have that waiting room destroyed. Just unbelievable ! Very cool pics. Thanks for sharing Thankfully the most significant parts of the building still exist https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2018/11/07/PCIN/ff83d401-c7a1-4eb1-8c13-370ec5d89a16-UnionTerminal_MV_0002.JPG?width=2560

Re: Companies moving downtown

Probably best they didn’t develop the station by the looks of those buildings they built. Dodged a bullet. In the book the Star released after the building's reopening, they say Trizec wanted to demolish the waiting room, so obviously they didn't care about preservation. If I'm remembering right, t...

Re: Companies moving downtown

I wouldn't cry if they bulldozed their current building (or the one across the street). Neither of those buildings are great by any means, but i think 2 Pershing is the more egregious of the two. It has full-on suburban office park architecture and planning, being just a giant forbidding featureles...

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

Cordish will now be involved with the project as the parking garage construction manager. The City will cap construction permitting and inspection fees at $200,000 for the office tower and garage. The city will direct Planning and Zoning to proceed in "Good-Faith" with all permits, approvals, etc A...

How about replacing the Midtown Market Place with a ballpark? Get rid of two suburban boxes and a sea of parking. Has the Glover plan served it's purpose?
That’s a much better plan. Perhaps that could be a good opportunity to dismantle the KCPT tower.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Just finished Paul Goldberger's new book, Ballpark. A nice history of baseball parks, from the wood structures of 19th century, through the concrete donuts of my childhood to the retros of today, and how they related to the American city. Three takeaways: 1. Goldberger is an excellent writer of bot...

Actually the Hyatt House atop a garage makes more sense at 12th and Broadway than at 9th and Broadway, then add some apartments on top of that. There would be some good views.
I still like the 9th and broadway location. It will have a more unique set of views

The midland tower was never forgot about but a lesser priority for sure. It's currently under construction.
I’ve never seen any action around there. When did they start?

Re: Fantasy Retrofits: Barney Allis Plaza

It looks like the rumor of the off-site garage might have legs... The city is buying the surface lots at 1200-1210 Broadway, which is located between Bartle and the Kansas City Southern HQ. That would be the perfect site for a nice office building. If I'm remembering right there was originally goin...

I thought the new building extended further into that (now) grass lot. Perhaps I was mistaken.
Do you remember where you might've seen that?
