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

SO a shitty building that has too much parking, no street interaction, that tore down an existing building that we just all held our noses on because of the potential for high paying earnings tax revenue is going to be empty.

Is that the development equivliant of getting a "top shelf"?

Re: Missouri Amtrak Service

Do we know when the new cars will be in service? I've got a few upcoming rides on the River Runner this Spring and Summer and wondering if there's a chance I will see them. Amtrak provides no notice, to my knowledge. I rely on message boards and Twitter. What twitter accounts should we follow?

Re: COVID19

The government is shooting for a sweet spot between hospital capacity and an open economy. If the hospitals can handle the load of severe cases, then they will start to open the economy. KU med is now down to 60-70 COVID-19 cases from a high of around 300, this is mainly due to stopping the spread i...

Re: Downtown Casino

No on a downtown casino. Visit other cities that have them. Depressing devoid of life dead zones with massive parking needs and they are so independent and self contained that they only take away from urban vibrancy. Casinos are fine, but not in urban areas. The only place that can pull that off is...

Re: Downtown Casino

Having the boats on the river goes back to the original amendment. Originally the gaming operations were only allowed while the boat was in motion on the water. You had to get a ticket and when your hour long cruse was over you had to disembark. This was done to get the amendment to pass as at the t...

Expiring TIFs

Since it's been 14 years since the T-Mobile center opened, kicking off DT's resurgence, I was curious if anyone had a list of TIF's and when they expire? That money coming back into the city's coffers should be making a big difference for both the city and the school district. (And frankly this new ...

So no one has been paying attention to the difference in risk between indoor and outdoor events?
That was what I was about to say. Indoor events are multiple times more risky than outdoor.

But I'm sure it's just out of spite that the city is turning people down.&

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

As much as I hate the conventions that I must attend, the virtual alternative just does not live up. The show floor is not as informative, and the networking is nonexistent. ^Are the conventions you attend just exchanging ideas or involve physical products/interaction? I'm talking just conferences/...

My last three houses have had covered front porches. It is the most desirable feature. The one I have now is the biggest yet, and it has a ceiling fan, and I love it.

I can't imagine anything adjacent a stop is going to stay single story for more than a decade. I'm assuming there will be a stop at that intersection. Didn't look it up.

Biggest takeaway I took from that was that the "Kansas City Monarchs" has already been registered by an unnamed party. Not the NBA.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

Since the new bridge is connected into 35, couldn't the ped/bike connection be extended to pass by West Terrace Park? It could even work if the old bridge stays. Blue is ped/bike, red is car traffic, black is new bridge https://i.imgur.com/N8s6STn.jpg Architectural rendering. https://i.imgur.com/Hm...

Can someone explain to me why this pipeline is so bad? I understand the biggest negative impact is when and if a leak occurs. What I’m confused by is the alternative ways to get oil from Canada to Texas seem far worse than a pipeline?

Agree it would take a ownership group. I still feel a hockey team would be better for downtown businesses compared to the NBA. Why is that? NHL fans simply spend more money. NHL attendance is slightly better as in percentage of available seats sold as well. I personally prefer basketball and from a...
