Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

It's cute that ya'll think the North Loop removal and 9 hwy redo are happening and that this "bridge" was the prerequisite. LOL Talk about rose colored lens.. I was asking the question more of the how not really whether it will happen or not. Do I think it will happen within the next 10yr...

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

I'm very much for lowering grade on HWY 9 and connecting the East & West sides of RIvermakret/Columbus Park. I liked the renderings they have shown on that. I'm also a big fan of removing the North Loop as well, or doing something different with it. However I'm not 100% sure how that will work t...

Re: Nashville?

No expansion talk, and Royals are not moving to Nashville. Could one happen, sure. I’d bet on expansion to get to 32 teams like football. But both clubs in FL struggle with fan base. One needs new stadium, the other got a a terribly ugly monstrosity new park. Nashville might be a good fit but nothin...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Weird that KS folks would not be juiced for a closer location. But I understand, as most KS suburbanites very rarely journey beyond their 10 mile radius from their home. It can be a little of a drive to reach an interstate to get across to another part of the Metro. But I think it’s mostly a knee je...

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

This bridge is going to be very unappealing in terms of design. I understand a lot of it has to do with building requirements of FAA & airport. Rest is at the hands of MODOT & politicians basically wanting to get it done to serve a function not be functional as well as have a nice design. It...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

They will need a vote to extend the current tax. They will need a vote if other counties are expected to join in. Architects can design anything they can dream of but at what cost. KC has a limited budget and a lack of willingness to RAISE taxes for this project maybe even to maintain taxes for thi...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

The public piece gives me pause, really hoping it will be for other things related to development around it and or within the structure of incentives and such that government can grant; ie no public funds that require a vote. The Rendering I saw on Twitter I hope is just a placeholder, and not even ...

Re: West Bottoms Redevelopment

I agree with you on not only transit but routes into the West Bottoms. From the Eastern approach there is what, 2-3 ways to get down there. From KCK/KS side there again is maybe 1-3 ways and that is it. I'm not sure you could create more routes or not given the topography. But if anything improving ...

Maybe KC Tenants could apply for grants and incentives to renovate their own homes and help create affordable housing they could benefit from some extra rental income instead of just chasing off developers and having them side step incentives and just go where they know they can make the most money....

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

I guess my other question here what exactly do the Chiefs own currently land wise. I know the TSC is owned by the County, so the stadium and parking lots. Do the Chiefs own the land where their HQ sits, along with the practice facilities? I ask this because if they were to move to KS what happens to...

Re: Portillo's in here

Saw this article. Would love to have this in KC. But hell I’d love Jack in the Box, Jersey Mikes, Schlotzsky’s, Krispy Kreme to be located with the city limits of KC. There are no franchises within city of KC for these places, which is weird. Maybe with the growth of the Northland those can be added...

Re: Capping the Loop

not that the cap is bad, but the execution and design will be half assed and we get freaking "Walmart cap" instead of something that could be a transformative place within downtown that we have not had in decades or since the highway it self was built.
