This could backfire on them too... it’s not like they get to handpick someone to replace Lucas.

They just got a $10k grant last week so hopefully that keeps the rest afloat longer. https://www.startlandnews.com/2020/08/ruby-jeans-gift/

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 ...

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.

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...
