Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Half of these complainers (or more, probably more) are coming from Kansas. They don't care a thing about KCMO and their only concern is what's best for themselves exclusively. Then there's Jackson County suburbanites -- which I'm sure a good amount do complain, but atleast they respect KCMO the cit...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

It does seem like the Royals had to know that this would be the initial reaction and wanted to get out in front of it. Hopefully they will really start putting some good info out there for the public to get excited about. It seems like the Royals will be doing this without the Chiefs though. So the...

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

Dubliner to return as KC HOOLEY HOUSE early next year. Decent concept change and new ownership group, so promising future. Was the Dubliner the original tenant on that site? I seem to remember another Irish bar, kind of upscale, that preceded it but closed down fairly soon after P&L opened. Hop...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Goodness royals town will not be a direct replica of Cordish town. They will both be fine. Such deep seated inferiority complex dominates this city's mindset. Any Cordish mouthpiece saying the city shouldn't grow because they got such a city sweet deal and don't want to possibly threaten a dime flo...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

We’re certainly getting a lot more than just a stadium for that price. Infrastructure, streetscape improvements, housing, retail etc. I really do want to know what kind of unit count we could expect with residential. I’d love if it were as many as 600-800 units or more but I honestly don’t know wha...

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

The only surprising part here is anybody ever thought they were good. There was a lot of good press about KCI through the years and, remarkably, KCI was ranked the best mid sized airport in the US in 2010 by JD Power. That probably delayed the inevitable by a few years and made the new terminal a h...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Now that this is announced, can this still get done by 2026? Seems like if it's gonna be a 28k cookie cutter like this is could easily get done by then. Seems like the airport timeline might indicate if that's possible. East Village is primarily controlled by the city and its master developer and I...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Fho45jsX0AI9HUS?format=jpg&name=4096x4096 That actually looks more like Corporate Woods than downtown. In any event, I welcome the move if it happens. I think there will be significant resistance and a lot of blustery people saying they will never attend another game.

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

In the defense of the current terminals, Mark VanLoh during his tenure did little if anything to truly maintain or improve the current design. He was determined to sell a new terminal, and he absolutely did (given in a sleazy way) but at least we’re getting an improvement now! Had the current desig...

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

Has anyone heard anything about volunteer opportunities/signups for stress-testing the new terminal? I'd have to imagine we're very close to the point where they'd want to start testing various aspects of the new terminal. I seriously want to be a tester. I would take vacation days off work to do i...

Desantis is such a better option than Trump for the GOP but Trump won’t go away. Only real WTF for me this election is Fetterman winning. How can a man clearly not medically fit to serve win.

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

Gonzaga, Kansas, Baylor, Houston are perennial top 10 teams. Followed by several other Big 12 schools that are perennially ranked. Big 12 would become the best basketball conference since the Big East in the 2000's. Amazing. I wonder if this will go anywhere or if it should? While Gonzaga would bri...

Which would include the new Panasonic plant since it will actually be in Johnson County.

Re: Panasonic Electric Vehicle Battery Plant (Mystery Kansas 'Mega Project')

I wish the politics/mechanism could be in place for greenbelts around metros. Suburban sprawl reaching all the way to Lawrence will be the biggest mistake in 50-60 years that we are basically 100% guaranteed to make. Whether we include them in our MSA now is irrelevant to this, I know but the comme...
