Re: Three Light

It was moving fast initially but last few months it seems like it's moving really slow now height-wise

Re: On-going downtown development projects

Goal should be to finally get a Target downtown. It's been awhile since we've heard about it and I think we need to press for it again with Target. I think getting one would get other scared retailers or stores to follow their lead downtown.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Speaking of Crossroads and foot traffic -- is First Fridays still happening tomorrow? I can't find the calendar for whether they're doing it or not.

So if someone knows...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Once the Royals move to the EV, the north loop section of Main is gonna be the worst part of downtown. By far.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Royals & 670 cap coming in will help a ton. On a Wednesday at the end of November, in the early afternoon, with a high of 37°? I doubt those things have much effect on this situation.. No, but there's only a handful of cities that would have activity in almost every inch of their downtown in th...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

A big reason is because the foot traffic during the day is all the way down at the Plaza or River Market. That being said, usually on the weekends or after 5pm it's pretty lively downtown & Crossroads. Royals & 670 cap coming in will help a ton.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

There just needs to be more down there. 10th & Main can help with that. North loop removal one day would help. Yeah the dead of winter doesn't help either though.

On the bright side the Crossroads & P+L are active unlike when Powercat first moved in.

I think it’s happening. They said next June is when they can really start moving. This project has good vibes, good people.

Awesome. Was also noticing yesterday that CNBC twitter account has tweeting out the “Kansas City the best place to travel & work remote” article on auto-pilot for months now. Like every other day they just keep tweeting it.

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nobody’s gonna give a shit about Kansas sports in 10 years when Royals & Current are downtown and thriving. It was cool in 2008 when they decided to build there but that’s not gonna be the future.

Best value boost on their would be getting Story over Ellington. Story is great. Ellington is far from it, for our causes.

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

The one thing I like about the new bridge is that you should have better view of downtown when driving than the old one did. And when the old bridge is removed you can see it all with no barrier.

Re: OFFICIAL - Buck O'Neil Bridge

The poor architecture of the bridge isn’t a huge issue to me compared to the real issue; the partial destruction and further splitting apart of the neighborhood (what little is left of it at least) on the south end of the bridge. I think there was a chance to reconnect a bit of urban fabric, but in...

I'm not sure where they would even get the money for a bridge park with their goal set on reviving Barney Allis by 2026
