The biggest difficulty will be on the Royals organization to sell downtown to those who buy the tickets. The vast majority enjoy the simplicity of the giant parking lots and a line-of-sight walk to the stadiums....

Re: KC's Big 5 needs for 2020s

Allowing for tiny homes and small lot infill will help ease this as well. East Side with construction of 1000s of inexpensive prefab and scalable homes. Think the modern equivalent of Sears homes in mass scale. 3BR,2B that would be functional for any family structure and limited choice on style bes...

I'm amazed that the Strand is still open.
I thought you meant in 2004 but you meant today. I had no idea. KC’s oldest continuously operating movie theater since 1916. I wonder when was the last time the seats were replaced?

Re: Union Station

Jerry Medlin owned a percentage of the Strand in the 1970s with Charles Setter. Eventually, Setter sold the Strand to Snow. Previously, Setter and Medlin owned the Astro, a porno house inside Union Station. Deep Throat screened there when it was released. https://kansascityarchives.com/2019/04/10/t...
