Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Want to see a nice airport? Check out OKC. Nice looks & some interesting amenities. They do something KC should do. Live music. I can attest to that, flew out of there earlier last year heading back to Italy, and I was impressed to see that they didn’t over build when they initially re-did their te...

Total Hotel rooms in 2026 (16,000+) How the hell does Kansas City have more hotel rooms than Seattle Philly Baltimore Montreal Denver Someone mentioned that only certain rating of hotels were considered.

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Then you have the "parking and traffic is a nightmare" stupidity. We all know there's ample parking, public trans and a traffic study has been and would be done again. Going to the K now isn't a traffic wet dream, so I'm not sure what they're worried about besides not having a billion acre concrete...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

If we started with BRT, maybe the city could get rid of set backs, and zone for multi family. North oak could be a really strong backbone for the northland but at the moment I think it’s way to low density to have a streetcar. Even if you only ran it from north KC to Englewood, and magically didn’t...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

Clay: HOA bridge up Burlington to North Oak, continuing up dedicated ROW to Cookingham Dr, follow Cookingham to KCI. This project I can see definitely jumpstarting a spine of TOD at three major junctures. Vivion Rd intersection, Engelwood Rd intersection, and 72nd St intersection. Very similar to h...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I guess so. While I’m not against the overall design, I am disappointed by the lack of nighttime architectural lighting. Even with their light systems on the hotel is a dark mass in front of an otherwise bright skyline. Could we possibly lobby them to add some down the road? Or has that ship sailed?

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Riders are counted by automated passenger counters installed over every door. They are highly accurate (with slight under-counting) and counts are checked manually by KCATA staff in accordance with FTA regulations.
At what percentage do they undercount? Less than 1% or a little more?

Re: Downtown tower construction boom in 2020?

I think a significant item to really focus on to continue a boom line this is we truly need to lock down a large company with a tower, sure the W&R tower will be a big deal, as well as strata, but if we could get a committed customer that wants a large scale class A tower downtown that would continu...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

I think the free bus initiative will be incredibly beneficial for our chances when it comes to the transit aspect. I think with us having a fair bit of time to prove it being feasible will also be helpful to our chances, will it be enough to win the slot though is the real question..

Re: Union Station

Thinking long term, I think 2 Pershing needs to be demolished in whole or part so Union Station's northernmost platform can be reopened. It's ridiculous that such a huge train station has to relegate its Amtrak platform outside, and I don't see that changing unless something major happens. Also, 2 ...

Jon Stevens was on Grill Nation again today.
- mentioned Port KC's desire to extend streetcar to the East Bottoms and/or Isle of Capri.
- mentioned the design has progressed to the point that Port KC can/needs to get the financing lined up.
Do you have a link to the grill nation episode?

Re: Poll: Does the Plaza need a drastic change, some change or on the right path?

Plaza ownership is convinced the streetcar will just consume all of their free parking and provide no benefit. Seriously. They’ve got to be kidding, right Dave? I mean there’s literally a huge amount of evidence to point to the contrary in the starter line. The economic boom that the SC will have w...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

I’m so absolutely disappointed with the parking structure of this airport. Not only does it not provide safe passageways, either over, or under the roadways, but it absolutely dwarfs the terminal building and leads to a claustrophobic valley between the two structures. I don’t understand why they co...
