Re: New Chiefs Stadium

Ya'll thinking some new high rise buildings are going to magically pop up around a football or baseball stadium, or be included in the stadium construction, is comical. Do you NOT look at what has happened with stadium construction and the areas adjoining those properties over the last 70 years? WHY...

Re: KU/KCK <-----> TSC East/West Transit

That all depends on the funding situation. You can't build it -- BRT or streetcar -- with existing revenues. A new source must be found and the downtown/midtown method (TDD sales + assessments) won't generate enough on its own. R E G I O N A L. F U N D I N G. Fully understand but I can't vote for r...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

If a new stadium costs $1B, I can’t really see how even double the suites covers that cost over the life of the stadium. They don't, and the team doesn't care because they're not losing money because their original costs are miniscule since they DO NOT OWN the stadium. Taxpayers own the stadium, an...

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

You guys can't have a discussion about convention centers while failing to recognize the fact that our convention center offers the most column-free space of any facility in the US. You shouldn't minimize that space or want to erase it to increase total SF. The column-free space matters more than yo...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I've been saying this forever. And not just in the plaza. However, almost everyone you bump into in the US wants and believes that pedestrian plazas can't succeed, so they don't. Despite the fact that they do everywhere else in the world. The unimaginative minds of Americans never fail to amaze me. ...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

I have to point something out, because it's really annoying to keep hearing everyone talk about what the Chiefs will do with the stadium and what the royals will do and whether or not the royals will demolish etc etc. The Chiefs and the royals do not own the stadiums. They do not own the land here t...

Let the speculation begin on next potential location.
It's going to Arrowhead. Plans are already being drawn.

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

Oh, I was trying to think of something that would actually attract people. I guess I just don't see how we really need it. Wouldn't be better than Starlight and if you're going to do a stadium concert you'd just do it next door in Arrowhead. Starlight hold 7500 and most big outdoor tours want 14,00...

Re: Kindler Hotel (1110 Grand)

This project would look even better if they could put a cover over the giant parking garage next door. If something would fill the Grand office tower site then you'd finally get a real dense & active corridor here on Grand for a really long stretch Do a kinetic art cover on the garage. Can give...

Re: New Chiefs Stadium

We're not Lambeau. We're like the Dodger Stadium of the NFL. Pretty historic, but not in the elite level. I know KC thinks they are but they're not. And we could definitely use a new stadium/renovation. Again, your opinion. Arrowhead is literally the basis of all modern stadium design. Your youth i...
