Re: Sprint Center opening day pictures

I like it. Collison is crying like a baby about it on FB. Author CityScene KC Hard to believe someone approved something this greasy to a publicly-owned facility.

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Man, this is going to leave a massive gaping hole in downtown. Downtown east of grand is already low density, but removing that building will really change the feel of the area and since that was one of the only somewhat modern buildings, it will take many views in that area back to the 1930's with...

Re: Fantasy Retrofits: Barney Allis Plaza

Did Union Pacific just build a new HQ in downtown Omaha? Hadn't heard they were looking to relocate. Current HQ is coming up on 20 years old. Rumor was that they were looking at relocating to a place better suited to attracting talent. Potentially to a city with existing class one HQ UP moved from ...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

We don't want anything like Busch III. The Ballpark Village development has helped, but it's still surrounded by run down, crappy parking lots and parking garages built in the 1960s.

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

There is like zero wow factor to this east village proposal. Did they hire Edgemoor to design it too? Gotta do better than this or just leave it where it is. I agree, do it right, or don't do it at all, is what I'm saying or trying to state. The proposal I was referring to probably isn't correct or...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Why wouldn't they get used? Typical KC response. Let's think small and build a little minor league ballpark that seats 20k and then we can worry about adding more seats later. If they want taxpayer support, I would not vote for a downtown stadium if it didn't seat at least 30k+.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Mid July Update: 100% Occupancy And still no real time line on when 3 Light will break ground....ridiculous. I would think Cordish would want to build 3 and 4 together with occupancy like that for both 1 and 2 Light. It's not ridiculous. They rent out apartments to make money. They're probably not ...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

even if it is built North/North East from East Village. This should be Incentive to create some new Skyline beyond the walls of the outfield. I bet you could even get projects that would start at the same time of construction to time their opening with the new stadium. Build some residential Towers...

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: 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.
