There is a proposal to demolish the buff brick building behind the Christian Church Hospital at 27th and Paseo and replace it with a 96 unit group living rehab facility. It is a companion building to the hospital and I believe is was originally housed nurses. The duplexes and West Paseo would also ...
Vegas has Biden as a 20 point favorite fwiw. As always, "run and vote like you are 30 points behind," would be the advice I would give them At a minimum, any admin needs to provide City and local gov't additional Fed funding to backstop their tanking revenues as a result of COVID so they don't have ...

I love the house. Architecturally unique and a ton of potential. I would always look up at that house driving by on 169, the views have got to be killer. I believe this is Marilyn Barth (the listing agent)'s personal home. She is the Barth of Barth Real Estate, a very well known real estate agent/de...

https://www.plugshare.com/ has all of the KCPL/Evergy Clean Charge Network chargers listed on it as well as others. There are plenty of slow chargers for convenience charging in garages throughout the center city. I often don't use them as my car has a large battery and I'd rather pay my off-peak ra...

When studied during the original streetcar route alignment survey, I believe Independence ave rated second highest for streetcar potential behind Main, (ridership and development) and I believe 63rd/Linwood also scored high for development but low for ridership, due to the dilapidated nature of the ...
The "Trump Economy" was mainly built on unnecessary tax cuts and stimulus when at the time the US should have been raising taxes and cutting debt since the strong economy (that he inherited from Obama) was on the up and up in preparation for an eventual downturn. Except, you know, he did exactly the...

There is a similarly ugly Longlines building in Manhattan as well. It's a prime location, so would be really positive if it is transformed to residential and the nearby jail can be consolidated to a regional justice center in another location.

Please tell me that McD in downtown Chicago did not come at the expense of the rock and roll McDonald's. It did :( Also - there's a Portillos with a drive through in downtown Chicago that always backs up into the street. Im not sure if you'd qualify that as 'fast' food (it's an institution like Pin...
New Advance KC document related to this project - it looks like it went from 12 stories to 7 (5 stories of apts over 2 of garage). The owner of the land, 3D Development, will give the land to Greystar Development in exchange for 150 parking spaces for 2101 Broadway, presumably opening up space for ...

I don't think the STL project will happen but that's not the point. This sort of plan would look great at the Rivefront. However, I think that I'd rather see RF built out quickly with 7-11 floor buildings than slowly with highrises. I'm not disagreeing but this is where code runes into reality. The...

Here is a look at the site plan for the proposed outdoor music venue: https://i.imgur.com/ioqK5aj.png Thanks KCtoBrooklyn. Where exactly are the neighbors that are concerned regarding sound? Sounds like traffic is their biggest concern tbh. If you look at the satellite, the area is directly adjacen...

A small two story bank with drive through and substantial surface parking vs. 5 story apartment building. Just because the building was old, it was not historically significant nor was it the overall best use case for the area. Agree with preserving and renovating existing buildings, but adding dens...

Cerner WHQ is not gated due to the nature of the business there. I have no inside knowledge re: the overall project. I do...

Looking at the site yesterday, I really really wish this could just become a small park, bluff and all. The Power and Light building is just so cool and powerful looking. You can appreciate the building even more now that the South face is exposed. A really interactive park with some great landscap...
Colorado is invading Westport. Just need to open a few dispensaries and it's basically Boulder. Is there a lot of fights and violence in Boulder? :lol: come on, WP is not that bad, just gets a lot of negative PR. Maybe the weed would help chill the agitators down? Or at least increase dessert sales...
