Re: New Chiefs Stadium

I guess I don't believe surface parking and urban stadiums go hand and hand. I'll vocally oppose any urban stadiums that rely on surface lots. Surface lots are going to happen unless Royals also buy up Paseo West and North Crossroads. Might as well get some efficiencies out of all the infra investm...

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

I wish there was an easy to use web interface to look at taxes and what they’re paying for and when they expire. I live downtown and sales tax is pretty damn high. My limited recollection is that hotel and rental car tax rates are fairly high as well. I'm happy to have the discussion on improving it...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

How could KC start a grass roots effort to convert Nichols Road into a pedestrian promenade (would need to maintain very limited access to vehicles). This should be a top priority. Too bad nobody reads the KC Star anymore. It would be a great opinion article contribution to get the idea out. I thin...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

I think the idea that chiefs fans are going to drive and park somewhere, walk to east village to sit in a bar, walk to paseo west to watch, and than back is a little fanciful.

I don't see a reason to turn a whole area into a parking lot. Just keep it where it is.

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

If the Royals go to EV, then where would you put their stadium other than Wash Park? Other issues aside, they make a significant amount of money parking. I don't think that's a revenue they're willing to give up on. Remember, in American sports franchises it's pretty typical to expect to take money...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

Why didn't SKC come downtown in the first place? Kansas gave them everything and a happy ending to land it over there. It's a stepping stone stadium. Downtown wasn’t being looked at. Bannister was with a large mixed use live work play district. Incentives won the day on this. SKC and Cerner were al...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

You and I mostly agree, but I think a custom built skc could go up in size for international friendlies and other events.

Arrowhead isn't needed at that size for most things.

I deleted a previous post because I thought it was too navel gazing. And it was. But like Twitter and Facebook didn't exist back when kcp started this. It was a weird ass place with different characters. I don't consider myself part of it, even though I've become closer friends with some of them, bu...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

If the Chiefs keep the Arrowhead structure and just build around/on top of it- how much money would that save over a full rebuild? It better be alot to be worth it. Cost to keep Arrowhead and modernize would probably be 80% of the cost to build new at the highest. The renovations needed are extensi...

Really? I don’t get that feeling when discussing certain topics. Could just be ignorance on said topic. There are a few who clearly know what’s up and some who are peanut gallery status.
