Re: Companies moving downtown

This is the document for Project Decoy that referred to 'recreating the skyline'... https://edckc.s3.amazonaws.com/AdvanceKC%2011Oct2019/Project%20Decoy%20Overview.pdf So what might have happened is that W&R decided to build their own dedicated building and decided not to choose Project Decoy (poss...

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

The new Mildred's is open! https://www.kansascity.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/cityscape/article235429527.html Is impressive how many coffee joints downtown has given so many surface lots yet to be developed. Stopped by Mildreds (a couple times this week) and it has been pretty busy each tim...

Ugh - I know it fills a need, blah blah blah, but unless those panels light up or spit out money, that's pretty bad.
If it is any consolation, I've heard a substantiated rumor that a significant development is in the works for the surface lot to the east.

Come again? I don't understand.
I believe the facepalm was in reference to, and correct me if I’m wrong, the thought that it would be ok to block the parks view of the downtown skyline and instead to use it as an office park amenity.

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

Incentives for an amphitheater when Sandstone (or whatever it's called now) is within what? Half a mile? Not that I agree with incentives, or even an arts facility in this location, but the amphitheater somewhat makes sense in this spot, given that it is designed to be a school for aspiring "roadie...

And DT could probably use a good breakfast/brunch place.
Banksia is quite good, and around the corner...
Not to mention the Mildred's that is relocating to the space right behind Banksia.

Re: Mark Twain Tower going residential?

There has been some sort of construction/remediation/demo crew in and out of this building for at least the last few days. Is working finally starting to begin?

Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

What would you think of a development like the Marriot Courtyard being done on this lot? No incentives, fills the lot, and is pretty sizable What did you think about the Home2Suites development? It’s on the streetcar line, is ugly as hell and we had to redo the road system to get them the land. Wha...

Re: Three Light

I recall something about the Midland Office Building being completed as affordable housing around the same time as Three Light. Do we know if this is still a thing? I'm most excited to see that building's first floor retail space reactivated!

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

Its been years, so correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this project originally sold as a mixed-use transportation hub? To me, it looks like it has morphed into solely a suburban office building project.

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

Excellent that Spokes will be adding sidewalk seating to that corner. But would be even nicer if they were open later than 6:30 PM and/or made the windows a little more transparent. Walnut could use the increased activity, though I get Spokes is on an island there after dark. I work across the stre...

Curry in a hurry has a loyal following. Another Indian place would be well served replacing them somewhere in the loop. Kulture Kurry has a spot at H&R Block food court on something like MWF. Wish they (or anyone else) would set up a regular spot downtown. Is the HR Block food court open to the pub...

This place could flip to Mexican overnight. Nothing but the sign says Chinese .
Exactly. Was literally a chicken and burger shop for what, a week? It could go at any time!
They must have kept the same radio station from the chicken spot.

Anybody been to the Chinese place yet? I've been a couple of times. Its a nice, quick, and cheap lunch option. Their basic options are their house beef, chicken, or tofu paired with either rice, noodles, or salad. Haven't tried the burgers. As a person that eats out frequently over lunch, I'd kill ...

It's been under construction for a couple months or more. The townhomes are framed and the apartment foundation poured.
Wow, I guess it has been longer than I thought since I was last over there. Thanks for the info.
