Re: OFFICIAL - Reverb (1800 Walnut)

The point I'm trying to make with my previous comments is this: the Midwest is not the Northeast (with maybe the exception of urban Chicago). KC is not New York, Washington, Philly and other places where you can sort of justify the high rents due to good transit access and a high walkability factor....

Re: OFFICIAL - Reverb (1800 Walnut)

No doubt major amenities are a requirement for suburban apartment complexes. But for downtown apartment buildings they come off as privileged and isolated. Next will be downtown cul de sacs. This ain’t it chief. It’s not privileged and isolated to have amenities in an apartment building (or any typ...

Re: Politics

I think GM, Chrysler, Ford are going to slowly move their cars to all-electric platforms. By 2030, I expect most of their lineups will include stuff like that. Hybrid versions of the cars will also become much more widespread. However, for everyone to switch to all electric cars, the batteries need ...

Found this on the Humphrey's and Partners website. Listening to the video attached with the webinar, it seems like this is a concept to demonstrate the capabilities of their "Stak" concept for high-rises, which is a highly efficient modular build system. I highly doubt that this design is in the run...

Re: 13th and Grand tower

Project mention in the BizJorunal. Copaken describes this as more "fluid" and 50% of the space needs to be leased or have a letter of intent prior to work starting.

Project mentioned in the BizJournal. The project is more defined and they want at least 50% of the space under a letter of intent/pre-leased before beginning construction.

Re: Three Light

I find something nice about simplicity. The Light towers are simple, and I like them for that. Pretty minimalist in my book and add something to the skyline. Architecturally significant buildings, like Power and Light and 909, really stand out as-is. They, and others, were modern for their time. Jus...
