room service was going away at many hotels pre-pandemic so I can't imagine now it's easy to find.

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

Hotel KC is running $125-150 per night through January. Would be a great time to check out the new hotel. Not if you can't get room service. We stayed in several local hotels awhile back and none of them would deliver hot food to our room (you basically had to go to the restaurant and order takeout...

Re: 5th and Main (Northwest Corner)

^i think it's a recommended 75' per the GDAP. Not sure about FAA limitations. Correct on the recommendation (it's not a restriction -- there is a process for exceeding the recommendation). The downtown airport flight paths do not impact the River Market. Fang makes a good point about taller buildin...

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt House (900 Broadway)

Who's paying $120/mo for surface parking in the loop? :roll:

Also, you forgot to subtract the TDD assessment for public surface public parking.

Re: 5th and Main (Northwest Corner)

I'll take the larger project with less parking, please. All parking in/out should be on a restored Main Street between 3rd and 5th. I don't see a restored Main Street in either proposal. It looks like both will keep the 1980's pedestrian alley we have now. These are just proposals. If they're seeki...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Is there a estimate of when the new TDD will begin paying? When the new TDD board votes to activate the assessments and sales tax, probably as soon as there's a Full Funding Grant Agreement (estimated by end of year -- previously 1Q21). There will probably be some lag as the new TDD to turn on rate...

There is a new permit/plan filling for the building that was supposed to get a vertical addition.

Re: Bridging Park & Market

Yeah MO would sell it outright and get rid of the bridge maintenance costs so that's their angle. That is also the angle to get them to help fund the change. There has to be some federal grant money out there for a project like this too. It's the perfect candidate for a BUILD/TIGER grant under a Bi...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Correct. The new TDD will continue paying off the starter line's debt, but on the original schedule (downtown TDD special assessments will also retire on their original timeline). At some point, the downtown TDD's rates will be set to zero.

What was the point of having a crosstown connector through the Crossroads in addition to I-670?
Good question. If pressed, I suppose it was quicker access to car-focused Crown Center from I-35.

Re: Is Midtown Marketplace one of the city's greatest blunders?

Probably the property owner's fault, right? It certainly isn't the market's fault.
