Patients are people with medical needs. Dental patients tend to be older, as healthy people under 40 or 50 usually have not developed many severe dental or tooth loss problems. Humans used to not live much over 40 and teeth seem to not want to last much more than that. There are lots of elderly goin...
Had some out of town visitors that wanted to take some photos from a vantage point. Took them to the west segment of Penn Valley Park to the Scout statue. I was totally embarrassed and ashamed for my city. To approach you must park south of the blocked off access. The access is blocked by 2 concrete...

The Waddell and Reed tower proposed back in the sixties for 9th & Main was to be 20 floors. Wonder how many employees they had then compared to now and how space needs for brokers has changed with technology.

Ever since my grade school bus pulled up to take us to the old KC Philharmonic at the Music Hall I have felt there was something missing on the east side of BA Plaza. This is one place that a wall of buildings will finally complete. Really like that the height and scale of it fits the rest of the bl...
Which indicates to be acquired from the University of MO(and something else that I cannot make out). Which does not answer where will dental patients park, the overload lot is 2 blocks away. I know the dental college has wanted to build anew east of TMC for years but the legislature in Jeff City has...
Anyone know who is taking over the former "Attitude" space at Cherry & 31st? Someone is putting in new restaurant and doing a substantial remodel. Gone is the crusty patina and in is a bright and cheery dining room.
Thanks. Looks like phase 4 will just duplicate what is presently there. Although brick, the window glass will tie it in with the present construction.. Wonder what UMKC Dental will do for patient parking when phase 2 commences?
Too bad that south side is so plain, even the glass is dull. But it makes sense as it looks like a future expansion involves a vertical addition to the angled brick building to the immediate south.
Hope 4 undergoes a dramatic design change from earlier renditions as much as 3 did. Would like to see the main bulk and height oriented north-south with the footage directly south of the Mainstreet being much lower than the other Lights.

From a distance the panels do not seem quite so yellow. Up close its like some sort of fast food franchise. I think a few years of weathering and pollution patina may soften them. The sides of the KCPA are already discolored and stained and it has not even been a decade yet. I just cannot believe th...
Most of these used the same materials for cladding as the original lower floors. In most there was some attempt to continue the architectural decorative elements. Even the AT&T Longlines would have been fine if only they continued the windows. 1532 may end up looking like a fine vintage brick buildi...

Wow! I was sure this was doomed to the scrap heap. This spectacular home and its location is the best billboard for single family home revival betweeen Troost and Paseo that money could every buy.

With everything happening on Broadway and as the major owner of many many blocks, KC Life should be a prime mover in a renaissance. But its like they put a black spell on the neighborhood ever since their suburban office park and trafficway scheme was overwhelming nixed by the city and the neighborh...
