Re: OFFICIAL - Grand Place (former KC Star building)

This thing has been under construction for a while -- any tentative opening date on the horizon?

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Just got to KCI and I’m really impressed with the amount of progress made on the new terminal in the last three months. In that time, the (new) terminal went from a hole I’m the ground to a very visible mixture of steel and concrete. I counted at least six cranes on site and can’t wait to see this t...

They are chugging along on this! I bet we’ll be rising above street level by the end of the summer 😎

Re: 1650 Broadway

I love this project and think it will be a great addition to an under-developed part of DTKC. The design looks a lot like the William Vale hotel in Williamsburg. It is striking and stands out as a conversation starter for sure.

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

I really like this project, albeit a little less than I did a few months ago. The color scheme is horrendous IMO. I'm excited to see this really come together in the next few months.

Re: OFFICIAL - Reverb (1800 Walnut)

This is a great project and that video shows how far DTKC has come in the last decade to two. Can’t wait to see more projects like this one replace those surface lots!

I know this isn't what it could've been (re; ground floor retail...) but I'm excited to see this go vertical.

Re: OFFICIAL - Second and Delaware

This project is surprisingly nice to look at. I wish there was some more (any) ground floor retail but nearly 300-units will be a great win for high-density sustainable living.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I wish they could plant some ivy or vines on the lot. It's hideous and some green would help things out.

Re: OFFICIAL - Reverb (1800 Walnut)

So the (north) views are going unreal. The unit is a little cookie cutter but pretty perfect for city living.

Capping the loop would do wonders for this project and all of downtown.

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

This continues to be my favorite project downtown. DGX will do well and will add much needed day-to-day retail in the Crossroads.

Re: OFFICIAL - New Downtown YMCA (former Lyric Theater)

Very impressive. I am honestly most surprised by this. I own a condo on 8th/Broadway and welcome this to the area. Hopefully it’ll be good for my property values.

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

(That leasing center is disgusting.). The non-hotel Main Street-facing side of the project is pretty far along. it looks like it will be ready by spring or summer for sure. This project remains one of my favorite.

Re: OFFICIAL - Reverb (1800 Walnut)

Spent the afternoon driving around DTKC and am so excited about what’s happening here. It might be tough to see progress on a daily/weekly, but as an ex-KC resident (and property owner downtown), it’s pretty clear to see how much has changed. A few observations: - There is a noticeable amount of foo...

The airport is on the way out. I’m looking forward to having a world class airport sooner rather than later.
