Re: New Chiefs Stadium

So many other good quality cities have put NFL stadiums near the downtowns. There’s literally no benefit to TSC over the downtown area. It will remain surface lots and decay forever or a stadium can go there and look amazing.

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

I just don't see the appeal of building new at the TSC when you could re-build outside downtown.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

This guy did a brilliant map of how they can pedestrianize the Plaza. It preserves parking and maximizes walking! Check it out

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

I can't believe anybody on this forum would support an NFL stadium anywhere near downtown. The sweet spot is right on the outskirts of downtown like Denver, Seattle, Minneapolis have right now. That’s where we need to go with it. Those cities all have extensive regional transit systems with direct ...

Re: KU/KCK <-----> TSC East/West Transit

I think a big point of interest we need to consider if getting MCC connected on the route- which they can do close enough with Broadway. Then you have two schools on streetcar at that point.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Its the American suburban mentality. Its all about your car, how far you need to travel and where you can park, a misplaced fear of crime. The masses don't care about the bigger picture. Where I live just now in the UK would be classed as a provincial city, and it is not without its problems in the...

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

According to Sagarin, KU is 48th and Wake Forest is 39th. Wake Forest has a marginally more difficult schedule at this point point than KU. If KU hadn't been a disaster the last 12 years they'd be ranked right now. They'll have to do extra to prove it to the voters, but if they can win the next two...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

I was under the impression that the new ONeil bridge crossing and interchange was a precursor to North Loop removal. It’s probably the only reason why I never complained more about how terrible the new bridge design is. If it had to happen to get north loop removal in the future, I could hold my no...

I wish they could put the Chiefs in EV, and then just use Paseo West for parking.

Re: OFFICIAL - Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

Normalthings is right. We need to renovate & expand this and atleast be at same level with Nashville. Again, settling and saying “we cant do that” is how you ensure you actually will never do that.

Re: KU/KCK <-----> TSC East/West Transit

IMO, smartest route is 39th to Broadway, then up to Linwood and over.

You get a jolt into the heart of midtown, and also get MCC covered with transit.

Love this idea or West Bottoms. Would choose this one over WB.

Also would give us a case to do something major to the East Loop

Re: OFFICIAL - Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

TLDR: we need to push multiple balls at once and make it clear there are catalytic projects but no project will be the single “ticket to growth”. I feel like there is a more incremental approach being taken today. In the 80’s and 90’s projects like the Marriott were hyped up to be the ticket to suc...

This is right, but it also complicated. Everyone knows that SKC is looking at eventually moving downtown.
Why didn't SKC come downtown in the first place?

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

If the Chiefs keep the Arrowhead structure and just build around/on top of it- how much money would that save over a full rebuild?

It better be alot to be worth it.
