Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

From city staff report. The plan is designed to accommodate bus, bus rapid transit, ride-sharing, taxi and even light rail. Persons arriving and departing the airport will be doing so using one of these modes and will not be arriving on foot or bike both due to its relative isolation and due to the ...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

the one direction can do the job though given the streetcar can go either direction.

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

It's frustrating because we specifically put in ordinances that if sidewalks need to be closed more than 15 days (understandable this has to happen) then alternative passage needs to be made on the same side of the street. It's actually done maybe 15% of the time since that was passed. If a constru...

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

How is it a bigger deal to drive another block one direction or another vs. walk it (not to mention those who can't walk well or at all and rely on functioning sidewalk system)? It's just amazing New York can build 100+ story towers and keep sidewalks open but its impossible for JE Dunn to do so for...

There is going to be a switch at US/Pershing, 39th, and southern terminus based on the design docs.

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

We don't even try here. We let contractors and utility companies come up with any excuse and the city waives any required pedestrian access we have on the books Baltimore street isn't a busy walking street anyway, I rarely see people walking on Baltimore between 12th and 14th. There's very little r...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

I think instead of fast food let's say we need more take-out places downtown. Take-out is not necessarily McDonald's/Taco Bell/KFC. It's often better quality food that you can order and carry home in containers after work. I also think downtown desperately needs a good quality, old-fashioned diner ...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

I can get by with a well done drug store and skip the target type but I understand how it would elevate the downtown living score for many

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

Still need more accessible fast food type operations in the evening. A later hours drugstore. Clothing stores. A Target type store would be nice.

Re: Fantasy Retrofits: Barney Allis Plaza

I couldn't watch it all but Hall and Shields were both pushing back in the 12th and Broadway land purchase for a cheap garage. That have me a little bit of faith.
