Re: Layoffs at The Star

You're not alone. As an aside, while most stories in the Star hang around for days (or weeks in the case of business news), I can't find that story this morning.

Re: Companies moving downtown

If and when the need arises for office construction to move out of the loop, I imagine it occurring in the Crossroads and along Main between Crown Center and the Plaza rather than Paseo West.

New Children's Mercy building makes a nice showing, too. Adds a lot of weight to CC skyline.

Re: Move to a new server

Bahua, a question that perhaps you can answer. Remember before the rag when the forum was on KCSkycrapers? At that time there was another side to the site for uploading images. Just wondering, were those all lost somewhere along the way?

Re: Washington Sq Park between Crown Center/Union Station

So, it looks like it is in fact very disconnected from the surrounding streets and the park. I guess that's OK Street arcing across the foreground.

Re: Scarritt Building

Seems like every time we go to Atlanta for market, regardless of where we stay - Hilton, Hyatt, W, Marriott - the car winds up someplace other than on site.

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Re: Three Light

Thanks. I think it's notable that the relative heights of 2, 3, and 4 lights mimic those of the Stinson, AT&T, and One Kansas City Place buildings.
