Re: Operation Legend

What if it's an insanely corrupt reelection strategy and they're sent to "police" urban polling places against imagined fraud? I wouldn't put it past them. In fact, I'd be pretty surprised if that wasn't the plan. Can't be much worse then the Dems thinking shutting down the U.S. economy is a viable...

So they have single-family homes with office towers essentially in their backyards... how is that going to sell, exactly?

You do know you’re on an urbanism forum right?
Absolutely. Would be nicer if they added some street trees around this building along the sidewalks.

I like living in cities in buildings rather than houses. Not everyone wants to live in a house

We'll find out soon enough if the Dem's standing back and permitting, even encouraging people to destroy the country in one form or another is a viable election strategy.

Re: Real Estate Listings of Interest (Metrowide)

When driving north on 169 the home just before Briarcliff Pkwy with the giant windows is for sale https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1-NW-Briar-Point-Dr-Kansas-City-MO-64116/66444511_zpid/ $2.4 million. It clearly hasn't received a notable update since 1985. Horribly neglected looking at the photos.

Re: Midtown Area Apartment Boom

Regarding 47 Madison, I've heard from the architect that the $/sq ft for that tower was enough to at least give them pause before proceeding. My take is that they will wait on it, finish their other plaza area project first, and pick it back up at some point when they get more comfortable with the ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Imagine something that people-citizens-visitors could actually just relax and enjoy. I suppose though that would be boring for thrill and amusement seekers with limited attention spans and zero long term vision. And of course what would developers do if they can't constantly be disrupting things and...

Not surprising after recent forward movement with streetcar extension. Imagine what the activity along Midtown/Main will look like when the streetcar funding is 100% confirmed.

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

80% of employees, work from home went better than expected and my friends are now wondering why they need an office building and the associated expenses.
