Re: '587 Project' Clay County

very interesting, at least it is development West of LIberty, curious how this goes with development along I35 & 69 HWY a multi phased plan that was released saying it looks to add 10K residents to Liberty in that area. The Northland has a lot of land & potential for sure. All of the land Ea...

Re: Columbus Park Redevelopment

"uncertainty in the economy and material costs", i.e. it's not going to happen, at least not now maybe in 3-5 years provided the economy is better. Really I should say provided the supply chain is stable with a reliable workforce. The economy has slumped for sure but is still standing. It'...

Re: NBA to Kansas City

someone posted earlier about women's soccer & tennis being popular across the board and WBNA lags behind. I know it does well in some places and has a strong fans base. My guess is that in women's soccer and tennis the game at the surface level looks very similar to the men's game. The same exci...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

EV may be unimaginative, as stated by some, but it is the blank canvas they may want and allow them to build the “entertainment village” around the ballpark which will engage not only Royals ownership but other investors, especially on the fringe of EV. So the development we may desire to connect th...

KCBJ ran article today on new billionaire moving to town. Woman to be in charge of Leads Bank, tech & fintech guru. Maybe she has friends that want to help her get an NBA & WBNA to town 🤷🏼‍♂️ The same thought crossed my mind, although I'm not putting any stock in it. Mahomes & lady coul...

Re: Kansas City Fly Over

The lack of change over 30 years is a bit depressing. lol, I love KC but that's what I see. I mean 99% of even KC people would not see the difference. If they looked closely, they might see the PAC and arena. We all see every little change. KC barely changes, but that's good for people like me that...

Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! THE BIG 12 IS DEAD! MAYBE!

Dukuboy says part of it^^ Kansas is the most valuable school in the conference, and K-State & KU have more tenure in the conference than schools in Texas that just joined relatively recently. That’s why Texas & OU were running things was because of their value. We need to exert that leverag...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

I really hope the Royals are not looking to get a public vote on moving downtown. That would be an epic disaster. If they want to move it’s basically going to be on their dime. I can see KC & Jackson County offering some incentives but no way they put this to a tax payer financed kind of deal. T...

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

Well so much for an interesting project with potential. Just another slapped together box with paint. Shame some of the previous renderings, the stylish ones, the ones used at the PIEA meetings, were cast aside. Glad it’s development, shame it sucks from design & function standpoint

Just glad things are still happening there. Seems like it has been a while in the making. A lot of starts & stops. Or maybe just stuff you could not really tell was going down

Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! THE BIG 12 IS DEAD! MAYBE!

I agree that getting the BIG 12 offices back in KC would be a nice grab. The only reason they were in Dallas is because of Texas being the bully and throwing their weight around. We are losing Texas & OU, gaining BYU, Central Florida, Cincinnati, and Houston. KC becomes more of a central spot fo...

Re: Dispatches from the Northland

thanks for the post. I grew up in the Northland, coming to KC as a 3 yr old in 1976. So I've seen all kinds of change and growth. I grew up in the Briarcliff area, went to NKC High School. Loved the area and it promity to downtown and easy access to the urban core to the Plaza and beyond. There are ...

Re: NBA to Kansas City

I'll say this again for tenth time- we do not need a local ownership group to bring a team here. We just need Mahomes to lead it & start it and he will attract investors from everywhere. The hardest part of getting a team here will be finding a small market team up for sale that we can move. I’...

But we need ownership, a person or select group, that can provided like 5 times the wealth he has and one that can sustain it for the long haul and has the ...

Re: NBA to Kansas City

NBA in KC would be awesome, but pretty much a pipe dream. Unless a franchise and their ownership group moves to KC the chances of us getting a franchise are very very slim. Would the NBA want us as a market? Sure they would. They have seen the TV audience numbers for KC when it comes to all sports a...
