Nelson-Atkins Expansion (YES..white glass is the end result)

Ugh, I hope not. They look like a set of sheds.

Magnificent Mile Project

It was never really a project. It was a just a "vision" done by Crawford architects to show their idea of how to connect everything from downtown to Crown Center. Some of the ideas are dead (American Center HQ, aquarium) and some are already happening (arena, density in some places). The rest was ju...

New Kansas City Wizards Stadium

Why not build a new Wizards soccer stadium in the urban core or downtown(seriously)? Because I believe they are usually built in a complex type thing with soccer fields for youth players and what not surrounding them. I'm not really sure though. I know there was a discussion about that somewhere in...

New Kansas City Wizards Stadium

Considering that half the city doesn't even know they are in the MLS cup, I'd say the chance is about the same as it was before the season started. I'm all for it though.

Why is there ANY discussion of a new football stadium?

Yes, bolding your statement makes it look far more important. If Hunt wants to go build a new stadium with all private money than he can build it whever the hell he wants for all I care. But considering the fact that he gave $50 million and expected the taxpayers to pay about $180 million for renova...

Why is there ANY discussion of a new football stadium?

Ohhh, tiny buildings. It's ok to destroy them then. There is no reason to have a football stadium surrounded by 75 bajillion surface lots in the Urban Core. The infrastructure can't hold it, the people wouldn't like it, and it looks like shit. The TSC works fine and there is no reason to move it.

Destroying the West Bottoms to throw a stadium in there would be horrible. Football stadiums and surface parking lots don't belong in the Urban Core. Just keept Arrowhead where it is.

Bi-State III (yes that's three)

I'm sure TK will be happy. The actual Bi-State law will have to be changed to allow for this to even go to the voters though so this one has a longer road to travel. Plus, voters might start to get annoyed by all of these proposals.

As for the actual plan, I believe it is this, no?

That response sounds even better. Looks like we can go ahead and pencil them in for the music themed restaurant.

OFFICIAL - Performing Arts Center construction

How about stop giving dates as to when they will break ground on the Ballet School (and the PAC), setting up a website, involve the public a bit more? How about not stating that they don't need the $50 million from Bistate II when they actually do? I would be happy to give them $50 and I am sure th...

Beltran says Royals didn't do anything to help the ballclub

Billy Beane is also one of the best GMs in baseball and has replaced every player they've lost with at least an average player. The Twins and A's have consistently won over the past few years and that's all that counts. You don't lose 100+ games and then say that we had a "good young core". Baird ha...

Beltran says Royals didn't do anything to help the ballclub

He isn't saying they should have kept more; he is saying they should have gone out and GOT more. The Royals simply aren't going to consistently compete until the bump up the payroll. There are a few small market teams that have consistent success, namely the A's and the Twins, but they both have a s...

Yeah, I'm sure my $50 bucks will make it easier to build it. How much are you going to send?
If they don't have the money than they don't have the money. What exactly do you want them to do about it?

That's typical business speak. Again, nothing big is going to be announced for awhile.

OFFICIAL: Company contact information for KC Live! tenants

I think it is a little early to be getting worried. It'll need an exclusive tenant or two but I'm sure that it will get one. There isn't any reason for them to announce something big almost two years before the projected opening.
