Re: Four Light

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FeaiwveXgBQfbrs?format=jpg&name=large I’d like to add to my continued annual request for a Brit’s Pub type establishment to cover the terrible P&L rooftops. Active rooftops add to liveliness of an area and will bring in more rent. Would also love some roof top op...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

What is the purpose of Live at P&L? Generic drinking and gathering place. Can't see any historical anything happening there. And how many residence have the 2 light buildings brought downtown? No improvement in street activity. Do they just hang out in their apartments playing video games and n...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

a stadium would be one of the only justifiable reasonings behind demolition of the legendary 12th Street and everything along her side streets. a bunch of 5 over 1's won't cut it for an area that made the city what it was in the 1920's. I don’t disagree with you at all but this made me think of som...

Re: Three Light

Yes. So true. Tearing down any building removes the history and eventually any memory of the past.some day the light buildings will be imploded to make way for parking and the cycle of removing the memories of those that grew up with them will be gone. Please pull forward to the next window. I thin...

Re: Three Light

It's not hard to fathom. But Men at work and VF aren't drawing 250k. Nor did they. Did I say "Men at Work drew 250k?" Never said those specific groups did and I was talking about the entire festival. Lot's of people might go to the festival and not to a concert and over 3 days, it would h...

Re: Three Light

Woodstock 99 had 220k over 4 days. 98.9 Rockfest had 50k for one day and was able to claim biggest one day festival in this country.

Just saying there’s no way 200k attended Spirit Fest and rivaled Woodstock 99.

That would put it on par with some of the biggest festivals in the nation at that time. I can't imagine anywhere near 500k attended over the weekend.

Re: Three Light

The city keeps historical visitor information to downtown and convention districts but I have no idea how those were collected back then. We have technology now that is very detailed and can provide us with some highly useful insights to make these determinations.

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

Ya'll thinking some new high rise buildings are going to magically pop up around a football or baseball stadium, or be included in the stadium construction, is comical. Do you NOT look at what has happened with stadium construction and the areas adjoining those properties over the last 70 years? WH...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Let’s just keep it boring and discuss the EV location. I’m sure the mayor won’t get his way anyway. I don't understand continuing to mention what the mayor wants? He doesn't own this city, is that supposed to provide validation to your opinion or something? Definitely great to bring baseball downto...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

I thought we were building all this to attract visitors and increase the amount of downtown residents. A baseball stadium would help that goal more than any business would. I understand the negative consequences of a baseball stadium going in crossroads. I also understand the positives far outnumber...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

You can't recreate Wrigleyville even with an unlimited budget in any city. Again, North Loop offers a location surrounded by old, historic buildings that would make it feel surrounded and not isolated. Tear down the FlashCube building and two other buildings and you're good to go. It would also spe...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

"East Crossroads" is kind of hiding the ball as to what people are really advocating for. Y'all want the stadium to come right up to Grand right? That's just the Crossroads. East Crossroads is east of Oak, at least IMO. The streetscape around EV is just so horrifically bad. Imagine they p...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

“Low-rise” like Light 1-3? No, those would be high-rise buildings unless you disagree with IBC definition. I'm not saying the Royals should not also do high-rise apartments if they think the market can handle it and if they think they can compete. The smart money would be on low-rise residential th...

Re: NBA to Kansas City

And with new money being invested into the league, the addition of WNBA League Pass, and international initiatives -- the league is actually progressing in a positive direction. Attendance is certainly an issue in some markets -- just li...

Re: Bike Lanes

Honest question. How do you bicycle folks get your way so often? I have eyes on our downtown bike lanes often and rarely see them in use. I have seen more use than ever before recently after Grand got done. They got the delineators installed today btw. Whatever tactics you all use to get things done...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

The Royals district should focus on low-rise residential and retail with a few sports bars mixed in. If it goes in EV the bars will likely be dead on non-game days. “Low-rise” like Light 1-3? No, those would be high-rise buildings unless you disagree with IBC definition. I'm not saying the Royals s...
