Re: Four Light

Site selected apparently: parking lot next to B&B Theatres in Downtown. Focus for now is to complete and lease out 3L and complete the Midland conversion. https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2022/10/06/four-light-cordish-power-light-district-apartments.html?cx_testId=40&cx_testVarian...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

KC apparently ranks high (top 10) for FDI. Should help grease the wheels for foreign flights and job creation eventually if we can sustain the momentum.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Does anyone else think these airline incentive programs are quickly turning into a racket? $11 million in incentives for a narrowbody airline who's connectivity isn't much better than Icelandair's is absurd and the service will likely end the instant the money is exhausted like it did for Hartford. ...

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

It would be odd if they didn't add at least a few new routes along with restoring pre-covid service considering Southwest was the biggest advocate of the new terminal.

United recently conducted their aircraft fit test with both an A319 and a 737Max8. Fit test schedule for September Delta & Southwest, October for Spirit, JetBlue, Air Canada, Frontier, and Allegiant. AA wasn't mentioned so I assume November? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FbghpcVXoAA1uRq?format=jpg...

Re: Brookridge Golf Redevelopment

One final hurdle to clear which is acquiring rights-of-way from neighbors and finishing utility work. Groundbreak could begin this fall with first phase (which includes 317 apartments; and 12,596 square feet of first-floor retail) to be completed by summer 2025. https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascit...
