Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Should orient toward downtown for skyline views. baseball stadiums usually face northeast due to balls getting lost in the sun. https://i.postimg.cc/nVjzwfLm/Ball-Park-Orientation2.jpg Not only that but if the stadium was facing west the seating would look directly into the sun as it is setting.

Re: Downtown tower construction boom in 2020?

From what I've read, we don't want to be Nashville. No probably not. The city has in a way lost it's soul and become sterile. Starting to look like another Seattle or Austin, but the sheer growth and amount of cranes is impressive nonetheless. KC has historically grown a little more organically and...

Re: Downtown tower construction boom in 2020?

Even if all of those projects got started tomorrow, there still wouldn't be as many cranes as Nashville has up right now.

Re: Downtown Parking Enforcement

However, there's already the perception that there is zero parking downtown by all of the surburbanites or they are too lazy to walk more than half a block. Is it going to negatively affect growth when these people start getting tickets and the KC Star picks it up and blows it out of proportion? Ye...

Re: OFFICIAL - City Bank Building (Church of Scientology)

So, what do we want this building to become once it inevitably goes up for sale again? I’m thinking hotel You haven't looked into Scientology have you?

Re: Downtown Zoning

I’m not sure what could change? Realistically anyway. How about cutting the concerts off at 10 PM and starting them earlier? I've attended a few of the big-name concerts in the Live Block and they will advertise the show starting at 7-8 PM, but the headliner comes on at 10-11 PM. I know it's a mark...

I think that spot was awkward for a stadium with the railroad tracks. Maybe if they tunneled over the tracks.

Re: Crown Center: urban disaster, shining star, or in-between

Converting all of the third floor over to halls was an extremely smart move on CC's part. That said, It'd be nice to see a marquee restaurant or experiential tenant take up the old 4th floor theater space. It's a shame that large of a space is just mothballed. Overall, It's the second floor that gi...

Makes you wonder why more chain fast food doesn't notice. I've been told by leasing in the past that most fast food chains won't even consider anything if a "drive-thru" isn't an option. That's a bunch of crap though. NYC, Chicago, Vegas and other high pedestrian areas are full of fast food options...
