Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

The poor architecture of the bridge isn’t a huge issue to me compared to the real issue; the partial destruction and further splitting apart of the neighborhood (what little is left of it at least) on the south end of the bridge. I think there was a chance to reconnect a bit of urban fabric, but ins...

Re: OFFICIAL - Pennway Point

Name a spot in the RM that you can build the Ferris Wheel on that wouldn't be better used for a building. Would be a cool area for it maybe a little sleepy though! "Would be better used for a building" is an odd requirement. I doubt there's a single site in the city that would technically...

Re: OFFICIAL - Pennway Point

River market would provide interesting views. Seattle has a ferris wheel on a pier near pike place market.

The convention center? The ballroom opened in like 2007 right? It spans the freeway. What has changed since then that would keep them from doing that?

Our convention center lies over a busy freeway. If terrorism in kansas city was a big concern, I don’t think that would’ve been done

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

I missed that quote. I'm now wishing this gym wouldn't be moving here then. This could be an awesome TOD but instead we're getting a suburban style gym? The gym owner is bringing a suburban style of thinking to downtown. Bad. Suburban style thinking has been infiltrating downtown in way worse ways ...

Re: When Downtown KC was a powerhouse - A must see for all

It’s definitely my choice for a recreated building in KC. The lot is still empty, and it was built the same year as the Rookery in Chicago by the same architects. The Rookery is one of the most important buildings in modern architecture history, so having a building so closely related to it was a ma...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

With Copaken owning two key blocks in this connection, I imagine a development there will address this concern. Unless copaken gives up the ghost on their office towers, I don’t see them developing in the loop anytime soon. I wish someone would buy out their properties so we can mitigate the devast...

Re: Urban Living Pet Peeves

I’m not sure why the solution everyone jumps to is arresting people after these things happen, and not, say, redesigning the roads to discourage these things. It’s not just street races and donuts, people take dangerous U turns in the middle of broadway or grand all the time, because these streets a...
