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

Company (national financial firm) keeps moving the back-to-the-office date farther out, most likely based on continuing spikes of COVID-19 occurring around the country.

I took a video while wondering around. There seem to be no more than 15 people in the building at any given time.
Thanks for the walk-through, sir. I appreciate this and your other photographs of Downtown Kansas City elsewhere in the forum.

Re: COVID-19 Casualties

Instead of a 24 screen theatre with giant projection systems and 300 seats, I would expect they shift towards offering smaller premium experiences and double up the spaces in a renovation.

Re: Layoffs at The Star

I just can't read all the news on my phone, I get tired of that and all the BS that comes with online reading. Reading a paper gets you full in debth stories that nobody else gets now because they get their news from social media summaries and what not. Nobody reads a full news articles anymore (ev...

Several years ago, NBC had the made-for-TV movie "Asteroid." An asteroid is headed for Kansas City. It hits the "Freeman Dam", causing water to flow down the mountain and flood downtown Kansas City (downtown Denver shown). There was major damage at "3rd & Olive" and at "24th and Market Street".

This morning, there is still...
