Re: Ward Parkway Center

Anecdotal from the location they’re building (more of a renovation, previously a mattress hub) near me, Torchys stopped pretty much all work from March through mid June. Guessing Ward Parkway was further along and there was a push to get it open.

Biden doesn’t constantly speak in word salad, so that’s already a good start if you’re worried about cognitive decline.

Wadell & Reed's earnings are expected to decline by 35% yoy in the second quarter. Not great but not as bad as many other companies. We are lucky that this project started when it did.
There's still time to try to cut cost out of this...

Did the Hy-Vee distribution center closing (https://www.kcur.org/economy/2020-03-10 ... -lose-jobs) actually happen? Seems like exceptionally poor timing, if so.

Trying to figure out if I'm interpreting these numbers from KDOL wrong, but it looks like over half of the claimants are no longer claiming every week?

Re: COVID19

Updated showing 26.5M jobless claims. Broader industries are being hit including layoffs expected for state/local govts. Wouldn't be surprising if more than 3M hit next week. Some economists thought we'd peak at 25M lost by May but already exceeded and likely more coming. https://lh3.googleusercont...

McClatchy is already trying to sublease half the space that they had built out for the Wichita Eagle just three years ago. 181000 square feet in their old building down to presumably about 8100 now is a pretty crazy reduction. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/330-N-Mead-St-Wichita-KS/18510963/ Video ...

Re: The Beacon- KC Non-Profit News Startup

Very interesting. I wish they'd share some names attached but I guess it's early? Who speaks on their behalf at these events? If anyone goes please report back. Their funding seems legit with the caveat they haven't shared how much they've raised. There's a couple names listed on their team page .

It moved down to 150 about a decade ago. Bannister was probably about half torn down the last time I drove by it.

Another thing, anyone who shopped at that Macy's for 20 or 25 years would know that it's only been a Macy's for 13 years. It was a Jones Store.
Ah yes, an earth shattering difference in the quality of goods.

How did this thread start with them 'closing' in 2007 and just now they are actually closed/leaving. Worlds' longest going out of business sale?
It's been closed since about as long as the thread has existed, that doesn't mean their junk follows.

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

There are about 7 afternoon weekday games a year. Attendance is typically between 5-10k for those games. Any uptick in attendance would be from people already working downtown. Non issue. I doubt the IRS would open their garages, however, since those buildings are unoccupied during baseball season ...
