Re: Fantasy Retrofits: Barney Allis Plaza

if the city of fountains removes a fountain and then has the PERFECT place to install a new iconic piece of art/fountain and fails to do so then this is a fucking fail and they might as well leave it how it is.

Should orient toward downtown for skyline views.
baseball stadiums usually face northeast due to balls getting lost in the sun.

This was what I was hoping to see. More like this please IMHO: This is where we should put our Keystone Innovation District. Let’s get the local Apple, Google, and Microsoft offices down there.

That stop should have a Spanish look. Red Tile Roof. Smooth concrete archways holding it up. Think LA Union Station.
Why? It's not on the Plaza and there's multiple buildings equally far away without a Spanish look.
why not?

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Kansas City has a blank canvas and an opportunity to do something special with the riverfront. 2-3 story apartment complexes are not cutting it. I hate that this is even being proposed. Every plot needs to be the union or better. This cannot happen.

Re: Washington Sq Park between Crown Center/Union Station

I always thought that this would be a perfect location for a natural history museum and with the success of the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit at union station, that just confirmed what I was thinking. I know that there is one in OP but that's not the same. Tourists will not travel out there for the museum...
