Re: One Kansas City Place

Even the lower lobby level windows never get cleaned. Some of the pavers out front on the Main Street side are buckling and last time I was in the office (a month or so ago), they still had cones and tape around them so people wouldn't trip. I think it's been that way for 6 months or more, just put ...

Re: One Kansas City Place

They could also wash them. I would think a full, successful building like that would have the money to do that once or twice a year. I work in 1KCP and they never wash the windows it seems. Executive Hills is very cheap from what I have been told and doesn't do a good job of maintaining their prope...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Re: Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

Didn't HnR Block get about the same in incentives? I like their building, something similar to size of the HnR Block building would be fine I think. Although their garage is underground, which I would prefer in the W&R tower. But that will make a nice little financial district with both HnR Block an...

Is B&M the primary architect on this project? If so, they need to stick to engineering power plants or airports.

We don't even try here. We let contractors and utility companies come up with any excuse and the city waives any required pedestrian access we have on the books Baltimore street isn't a busy walking street anyway, I rarely see people walking on Baltimore between 12th and 14th.

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

When I ask why outsiders who lived in STL left, the common answer is around tense/uptight people, not crime, and those who stay is for the job. this one could also be related to the fact that there is a massive boomer population in st. louis, and less a regional characteristic. people tend to be fa...

Re: NFL Draft

Honestly, having it at Union Station is KC lame, I hope they change their minds. Block off Grand Street, between Truman and 10th Street or so and set up beer/food vendors in the empty lots. You have PnL right there that would benefit greatly. Set up some big screen tvs/large tents and put an artific...

Re: Bringing Conventions to Kansas City

KC won't have the turnout Nashville did and like KCP stated, KC just isn't a party town like Vegas, NO or Nashville. I wouldn't want that vibe downtown all the time anyway. Can you image if our Broadway street was lined with bars for 8-10 blocks...that would be a nightmare and I'm guessing a lot of...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

So a buddy of mine that lives in OKC said they are already expanding their 4.6 mile initial line and have ordered 2 more streetcars. I don't understand why our extensions are taking forever to materialize. Also their main 4.6 mile line cost $136M or so? Seems our 2.2 mile line cost at least that muc...

Nice pics. Why does the South view have that stone/tan wall? I don't remember seeing that in the renderings. I would have preferred all glass, but still looks nice. Yeah and I wish it was 30 stories.

Re: City Center Square for sale

Just a few restaurants where you can walk up and get a couple tacos or gyro would be nice. And I can't believe there is still not a McDonalds or Wendy's downtown.

Big fan of this going from one report of one place not being busy one Friday night to downtown KC is dead and nothing will make it unless we add a pro team and 10s of thousands of employees and residents.
