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

I’m curious what the plans are for this building now that Waddell is being acquired. Isn't this an Australian Company? Do they have a US office? I'm wondering if WR could still function as an autonomous US company? Here is their statement: "Waddell & Reed Financial and Macquarie are mindful of the ...

Read today that Nordstrom's is pushing back their opening on the Plaza to 2023. Have they even started the building?

Re: COVID-19 Casualties

Bluestem is closing 12/19. on the rumor mill- Betty Rae's (Not exactly COVID related). Very disappointing about the Bluestem. Reading the KC Star article, it looks like this would have happened with or without CV19 as they wanted to focus on their two other restaurants and more on their family (as ...

Re: Politics

^One possible scenario is that Biden doesn't intend to play out a full second term but may still run for second term and then resign and hand over to Kamala, depending on who he/DNC views are more electable before next election. If GOP has a strong relatively moderate contender, Biden may have a be...

I understand he’s currently protected, I’m just saying I doubt he gets in any real trouble. The fact some on the right think he’s going to run for the 2024 vote makes me think he’s not worried either. And like I say, I’m praying he doesn’t run and sails off into the sunset or back to TV.

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Why didn't they go with the implosion route? Proximity issues I assume? Would be empty lot by this point. I was wondering the same thing. I was there when they imploded the Dixon Hotel. Very close to City Center Square. Is Asbestos the issue? Big building for a single crane. At the rate it's going,...

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Man, this is going to leave a massive gaping hole in downtown. Downtown east of grand is already low density, but removing that building will really change the feel of the area and since that was one of the only somewhat modern buildings, it will take many views in that area back to the 1930's with...

Wow. You were there when the East Fork of the Black River which flows through the shut ins was rather high. Some nice looking rapids. It's unfortunate that Taum Sauk hydroelectric station was ever given permission to rebuild (the fake lake on top of Proffit mountain). It really puts the state park a...

Re: KU-MU rivalry reborn?

So is the KU-MU basketball game going to happen this year? From what I've read, probably not? That would push the first game of the series to 2021-2022. Would that be in KC or in either Columbia or Lawrence. Since it's only a 3 game series, KC probably just loses the game? What did you read? There'...

Re: Plaza Environs

The announcement reads like they want to renovate the existing towers. The renovation will create space for new employees. There is no language that sounds like new construction there so I am guessing they want the extra space for parking for the additional employees. If that is true, surface parkin...

On a serious note: Last nights debate was 100 times more watchable than the first one. Both appeared to do well with no major flubs. I do think Biden is going to have to address this Hunter stuff. It won’t impact the election but I really don’t want to end up in the same boat we did with Trump and ...

No, I'm acting like someone who has just tested positive for and been hospitalized with COVID shouldn't be doing any debates in two weeks.
