Many cities required to separate stormwater runoff and sewage are seeking extensions for compliance. Does anyone know if KC is?

Estelle's Diner (Cascone's) by the City Market streetcar stop is already closed.

Looks like it will be called Phikul Thai from the owners of Baramee with a summer opening.

I thought the Hampton Inn was using that adjoining garage for their parking. I wonder where they are parking guest cars now--the 811 Main garage?
No, they only use the surface lots across 8th on Walnut/Grand.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt House (900 Broadway)

Site work is beginning today. Pics please Nothing of note just yet. Some equipment has been brought in and they're removing the fencing on the far side of the parcel. I believe unrelated to this, but traffic in almost every direction around this intersection is down to 1 lane (looks like DST work o...

They started the installation of the DNA lights- so far just 3 are lit on the West end, but they look great.

Re: Hospital Hill activity

Columns going up on roof of building immediately to the south of the new tower. Is this the beginning of phase 4(a vertical addition), skipping over phases 2 and 3? I posted when the project was just getting started that they're adding one floor on to the current clinics building- to initially rema...

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

Much different than I expected. They are basically just keeping the facade in what will be an overall much smaller building? Will there be an accompanying surface lot? Seems like they've created empty space on the former Lyric site. There will be a green space/park area in the void between the Y an...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Quick question- why doesn't the airport use larger buses for the economy lots? Tonight was a complete cluster with a few planes landing right around midnight- I had to wait with around 60+ others for almost 30 minutes curbside for us to see our blue bus appear (only to leave all the other stops wait...

It is also the UMKC Dental school patient parking.
It would remain as they are building on top of the current ER building.

Thanks. Looks like phase 4 will just duplicate what is presently there. Although brick, the window glass will tie it in with the present construction.. Wonder what UMKC Dental will do for patient parking when phase 2 commences?
Phase 2 is where the current ER and ER parking lot is located.

Re: OFFICIAL - Wallstreet Tower (formerly US Bank Tower)

I went by to check it out- here's a few questions. 1) How is the Valet allowed to use the bus stop area? I guess they could switch to 11th when the construction equipment is gone, but it was harsh on those waiting at the bus stop. 2) Who keeps granting permits for these places to park cars on the si...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Unless you're walking by... the view that ultimately matters. The more important views are looking south from the loop and looking east/northeast from the convention area. It is a convention hotel after all. If the crossroads hates their view so much, then maybe they should be building the area up ...
