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

The convention complex feels pretty massive as is, I’m not sure we should be eating up any more urban fabric for expansions, unless it’s covering otherwise unusable space like freeway ditches

Javits in new york has a green roof that's just a green roof, not accessible as far as I know. Probably for rainwater retention or somesuch

Re: Kansas City Fly Over

KC’s large existing building stock ate a lot of the investment, so it’s hard to notice in a drone shot. Collison even has an article about how KC is a leader in conversions.

Re: Is KC Tenants destroying the development future of downtown KCMO?

I'm paging chrizow here specifically because they've claimed to be fairly left wing, but I'm also interested in hearing opinions from any other progressives who might be hanging around this board, what do you all make of this issue?

Re: 12th and Broadway site: RFP for mixed use

The RFP shows two separate parcels. The question then is should it be developed as two separate projects, or one large one? The more buildings we can fit on a site, the better. My vote is two separate projects. Why is that? It produces a varied streetscape that has more opportunity to evolve piecem...
