Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

If it happens, it'll be east village. The land is effectively banked and all the key people are involved there already.

The only neighborhood that wouldn't face extensive local opposition too.

Re: Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

I wouldn't give up Grand for this development though. I wish I understood more why they couldn't get financing to do w+r plus spec. I think that would go a long ways towards the frustrations here.

Re: Three Light

It's amazing to me that Truman Road (facing a freeway trench) will eventually be lined with new buildings from Wyandotte to Oak, and we can't get entire blocks along Grand redeveloped.

Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

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

From the press conference it sounds like this group will be very open to downtown. Was nice to hear Sherman talk about surrounding urban development too and not just plopping a stadium down somewhere.

The complete ownership group for the royals has some names you'd think would also push for a downtown park including the JE Dunn's, UMB folks,

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

I wonder if they provided money for the buy and got some equity in the deal and he's their rep, or if it's individual.

Great to crawl over that bar.

The problem with our mayoral system is that most of your power is standing for something and advocating for things. What does he want to do?

So far I've seen no leadership from Lucas. He seems like a classic example of please tell me where my people are going so I can lead them. I still can't even tell what he wants to do?
