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

Don’t forget that this is a city that will close a lane of traffic for 2 years so construction workers can park their trucks on their work site. Which is only to say if they will approve that, they will easily close a sidewalk.

Re: Layoffs at The Star

I agree that $6/mo seems a bit much for the amount of coverage he was providing. I may do it just to help subsidize and support the model though. He should really consider joining forces with the Shawnee Mission Post folks and any other independent news bloggers in the area. They could potentially r...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Where in the Xroads is the next 10+ story building most likely to get built? Like actually in the pipeline. Not just where you think one should go.

Theresa Loar's comments grate on the nerves. Is she always so annoyingly emotional??? Christ, reading her comments made me cringe as I read it in NY. Impressive "Cringe range".

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

Lucas talks out both sides of his mouth on most things, it's kind of his brand. I wouldn't put a lot of stock in that quote, given that it was to the star. He certainly tailors his message to his audience. Consider the Biz Journal a week or so ago. That interview definitely gave a different flavor.

I like it. Some improvements to 5th and Walnut should go with this that somehow let the streetcar go after it stops at the station vs. having to inch forward 3 feet and stop again.
Great idea. Need to install an all mode 'stop' for streetcar crossing.

More on the USDA move.

Its idiotic that the city is going to subsidize this federal agency's payroll.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Yeah, that was really encouraging. There were a couple of encouraging quotes. One being his sentiment that incentives have been used for every mediocre project that comes along instead of pushing for something big, like a 40-story tower or something.

Re: Companies moving downtown

I thought that the 13th/Grand site already had a TIF approved and the previous council activated that TIF (which was set to otherwise expire). So, how could they get an abatement on the property too? Unless they are foregoing the TIF? Or, that means 13th/Grand is not the site.

Re: Companies moving downtown

I guess it could be a 5-story, 1000 space garage w/ a 12 story building on top. That wouldn't surprise me.
