Re: COVID-19 Casualties

Noticed today that Brady’s (used to be Mikes) on Troost had a for lease sign next to the building. Little bit of a bummer to see a nice place on Troost close up.

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

Notice two core drill testing operations. One in the Catholic cathedral parking lot at 11th and Broadway and the other close to the crossroads academy at 9th and Broadway. Thinking the second one is for their gym? I had thought the gym was planned for the current Quality Hill dog park at 9th and Wa...

Re: 1650 Broadway

The renderings on Clockwork's website are different than what has previously been out there. I do not know which are the most recent:

Re: Brookside

The way the building looks, I would be willing to bet its something like a Meshuggah Bagels Funny you should mention that. I was talking to someone at Meshuggah a month or two ago and they said they were extremely close to signing a lease in Brookside, but then the One Light opportunity opened up f...

Re: Brookside

Couple BKS tidbits:
- Brookside Barkery is moving to the location on Oak & 63rd once occupied by Plate
- Have been told that Fiddly Fig is moving/closing (not sure which) and a restaurant will be occupying their spot on 63rd street

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

I'm not sure that the rendering provided in that story is true to what is proposed for 3rd and Grand. On the Klover Architect website, that same rendering is used for a project in the Delano area of Wichita.

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.

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...
