Re: Westport

816 Hotel is no more. A business license was issued for Hare Krishna KC Hotel LLC dba Tapestry Hotel by Hilton for that site. A zoning compliance letter was issued in November indicating a sale. I expect a renovation will be required to meet the new brand guidelines. Not surprising, their 316 Hotel...

Re: Politics

Today’s events have depleted my emotions like few others I have witnessed over my lifetime. Our American democracy was literally under attack by a group of pathetic seditious “deplorables” that don’t deserve the title of Americans. They have every right to demonstrate with their street and boat par...

Re: Historic Preservation in the Urban Core

He will never restore that house. It appears that he's just letting it rot. I understand the sentimentality of owning an ancestral home. But if you are the architect of its' destruction, that I don't understand. Sell it to someone or some group who wants to restore it, and has the ability to fund i...

Re: KC in TV and Movies

HGTV has a new show called “Bizarre Builds”. The network says they’re from Missouri but lots of KC stock shots and cameos from things like KCMO trash cans.

Re: Troost developments

Had a great response from Parks & Rec to a 311 complaint I made. I noticed at the NW corner of Troost Park there was a sidewalk on the north border of the park that went about 15 feet and then vanished into a tangle of trees and shrubs that extended all the way to Paseo. Looked at a map that showed...

They should just cut the mic if someone doesn’t have the floor at the time, but that would take all the controversy out of the room.

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

With metro areas like NYC and SF Bay areas experiencing an exodus partly due to COVID directly and partly due to expanded work from home/anywhere allowing many to leave, I wonder if KC is attracting some of them. KC housing is getting tighter despite uptick in home construction and while growing su...

Re: Downtown Q3/4 (re-)occupancy needed - service industry needs love

National hotel occupancy has been improving, however... - It's starting to level off - Revenue per available room (RevPAR) is below 50% compared to July 2019 - Daily rates are 27% below last July - Interstate hotels/motels are generally doing better than downtown hotels that depend on events - Lowe...

Re: N-S Bike Path in Urban Core

I think this was normalthing’s idea, but I’d love if PVP and Liberty Memorial and its grounds were consolidated into a unified, National Parks Service-run grand park. Interesting idea. Does anyone have any idea how much the IRS facility is utilized? It’d imagine the volume of paper filings they rec...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

The four blocks in East Village are smaller than Target Fields site, you would have to bleed over into the half lots by the highway. The IRS processing center is a very roomy site for a stadium. I love that idea but have no idea if the IRS site is still in heavy use or if the feds want to reuse it ...
