Re: Tracks 215 Project

Milhaus will unveil the project at the Crossroads Neighborhood meeting at noon. Thank you all for joining us today! Big crowd! Screenshots from today's meeting for those who didn't attend. Colored renderings will be available later on. I like that the 22nd Street side will have the garage hidden an...

Re: Is Midtown Marketplace one of the city's greatest blunders?

Tried out the OP Top Golf and loved it! I read that St. Louis is getting one near their downtown so I started playing with the idea here. The peach rectangle is roughly the length and width of the OP Top Golf. The entrance and "club house" would face main street. What remains of the Home Depot park...

Re: Tracks 215 Project

Per the CityScene KC Article, it doesn't seem like this will change all that much in scope...
The new project, renamed The Tracks, is expected to be similar to the plan pursued by Bryant with about 200 apartments in a seven-story building. It also will include a 265-space garage.

Re: Freight House Building

Does anyone remember the hotel that was proposed alongside the freight house redevelopment? Renderings and other details would be appreciated. The developer of the historic Freight House building, home of three upscale restaurants, wants to complete his original plan by building a 21-story hotel an...

Re: Uptown Shoppes

Thanks for all the excellent drone pictures! Yes, thank you! Thanks for all the great drone shots, Chris! Very appreciated. So sad to see that sod field behind the new apartments. Agreed, the drone shots are very appreciated. Very nice to see those perspectives in the city. I sent this one to the d...

Re: Uptown Shoppes

Chris, all of these photos across the threads are really fantastic. Thanks for doing this while you were in town! When I come back in the Spring, I plan on taking more drone photos and hope to have certification to fly within the Downtown area. I posted in the Parkville thread a link to a Flickr Al...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I wonder if the parking garages could structurally support a few floors of wood-framed construction on top of them for apartments. In particular, the old Halls and large parking garage on 47th between Pennsylvania and Broadway. Then, where Nordstrom is supposed to go, just build apartments there. I ...

Re: Katz on Main

I believe the pool will be put onto a new roof. Like they're going to remove the existing roof and build a new one to support the weight of a pool. Not to mention the current roof is partially sloped.

Re: Skyline from 169

Here's a slightly edited version of my photo. It helps make more colors show up a bit, but doesn't do too much. My intention is to retake this in the Spring.

Re: Crown Center: urban disaster, shining star, or in-between

Who bets that Halls will close down, and that is where Target will eventually land? Hallmark has given up trying to program retail at CC, and being a land developer themselves. I could see Halls eventually moving from their third floor "trophy" space into something smaller. Or getting rid of the hi...

Re: Katz on Main

As it currently stands, the developer isn't leaning towards a tax abatement. They are leaning towards State and Federal HTCs for the Katz Building. Comments on CityScene KC's post are all over the place. Some love it. Others complain that there's the lack of affordable apartments (and the City can't...

Do you have drone shots of St Louis. I’m interested in seeing how their neighborhoods interact but I’ve never quite gotten the ...

Re: Skyline from 169

Thanks for sharing. I have always loved that skyline view myself and never knew where to get a shot of it. I'm no photographer, but you might want to try getting a UV filer (or a circular polarizer) for your lens on a shot like this (assuming you weren't using any filters). I think it would help cl...

Skyline from 169

This is my favorite view of the skyline. The skyline, from this angle, looks purposely planned to be this way. Town Pavilion and One KCP look like they were designed to be the pinnacles in the skyline and will hold that title for a long time. I took this picture by pulling off into the Water Departm...
