Renderings of proposed Kauffman stadium imporvements.

I'm not sure I like the added seats in the lower one. It just doesn't really fit in and how often are they really going to be filled? Seems kind of pointless. Other than that, I pretty much agree with what everyone else has said.

Re: OFFICIAL: Power & Light District

So that site will eventually be something like this?

Can't wait until we actually start to get some information about this. Any word on how the Las Vegas convention thingy went?

Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

Personally, I'm not crazy about a lot of his work and I don't want him to design it just because it would be "controversial" or an "icon". Let's just wait until we can actually see the designs and then we can have this discussion. Debating about which design team is best before even seeing their pro...

Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

exhibit one: NJ Nets arena. Which hasn't been built yet. exhibit two: extensive portfolio of great buildings. And how many of those are arenas? i am sure that HOK would be doing the "arena" stuff while Gehry would be doing the aesthetic stuff. both are uniquely qualified to do each. Really? I haven...

Downtown Baseball Stadium

I really don't like multi-use stadiums like that. Honestly, I'd go for renovating the TSC before I voted for something like that. I just don't like the look, the feel, and the whole enviorment when you combine football and baseball. Just my opinion though.

Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

Guys from Heinlein Schrock and HOK were just on 810. They didn't really say anything we didn't already know but they put a lot of emphasis on them wanting it to be something unique to Kansas City and something that we can all take pride in which was good to hear. They also said that they invited HNT...

They get to have be the official communication people thing and they get a store inside there to show off in. Not sure if they get something other then that but it's a great deal for us.

Re: OFFICIAL: Power & Light District

Does anyone know when we will get an idea of what retailers will be down there and an estimate of when it will all be ready? I know it is real early but I'm trying to describe it to a few people but I can't really get a good idea of what it will be like.
