Re: Northland Schools Full

The chances of the NKC district voting in favor of giving land to the Liberty district are as about as good as the chances of the city of Liberty voting to be annexed by Kansas City.  In other, it's technically possible it will never happen.  Can you cite any examples of a Missouri school distric...

Re: Northland Schools Full

How would the Liberty school district get additional land?  Boundaries between districts were set decades ago.  Liberty can't go in and take over land that is currently in the NKC district without a vote of residents in both districts. This is not like city annexation where there is unincorporate...

Re: Liberty Parkway

Yes, I believe it would be Church Rd.  It's between 152 and 291.  They were mining something there so now there is a big crater with a newly laid road running through it.  Very odd looking. Oh yeah, on the west of 35N?  I think I know what you are talking about.  I was thinking you meant to the ...

Re: Liberty Parkway

I have a question for you though.  What is that giant crater they dug bordering 35 between 152 and 291 on the west side?  Also, do you know anything about the dozing near the Sonic on 291?  There is also some serious dozing going on about a mile west of that location on the south side of 291 tha...

Re: Northland Schools Full

In reference to Im2kull's post I say thanks.  You seem to be by far the most informed person on the board about Liberty school district.  How come you know all of this? Just for starters.... Yeah, you guys have got the boundarys pretty much all figured out.  Liberty stops right at the west edge o...

Re: Northland Schools Full

That seems pretty far north of the developed areas of the city.  Isn't most of the growth in Liberty going to the south? And, did they consider the KC side of I-35?  Isn't that where most of the school district's growth is occuring? Liberty's problem is that the district covers 85 square miles, a...

Re: Entertainment district proposed at Sports complex

Re: Northland Schools Full

Liberty is at around 6-8% growth per year. The Highschool had 1,666 students enrolled at the beggining of this year, with well over 100 new students each year.  New high school is to open in 2010.  Current building was renovated from 1995-1997, when it only had 900 students.  Capacity is now listed ...

Re: Liberty Parkway

Shoal Creek Valley will have two town centers, one probably similar in size to Zona.  Since it's a master plan community, they already have the zoning and planning permission in place and can build it whenever they want.  My money is SCV to win this race.  Liberty's attempt will be too little to...

Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

The new design sure is differant. The part I thought was cool was the inside with the double-decking of the suites and having them all in the middle. Just like another arena I know. ;) And if I'm looking at it right does the arena open up to the concourse in the upper bowl end of this picture? It l...

Re: 1034 Main

There is no existing 1034 Main.  This is a new tower proposed to go on top of the relatively new garage just north of the transit center on Main.  It is proposed to be 30-40 floors, but who knows when or if it will ever happen.  It will take a company pre-leasing the space to make it happen. Tha...

Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

Let me clear some things up here, I dont like the "new" design, or at least the picture that shows it as a giant twinkie.  I would take the other concepts shown over the giant yellow hued glass one.  I dont like the idea of using multi colored yellow glass.  It seems like the artists were in 60's wi...

1034 Main

Has anyone heard anything about this proposed building addition lately.  I know it was to add about 15-20 floors to the existing 1034 main building, haven't heard anything else though.

Re: Wizards Stadium update

Sure, I think it would.  That isn't an upside, though.  Those fans are already exposed to the sport, they just don't like it enough to go see a loser team.  Soccer, on the other hand, is an unfamiliar frontier for many. The last time I went during our good winning season of 03', I sure saw alot ...

Talk to the state of MO. Thats what congressmen are for You obviously haven't been there in a while.

Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

it really doesn't matter how much profit AEG makes in other places, they need to make a profit here in Kansas City. The more profit they make, the more money the city will make. So yes, operating costs do figure into the design.  There is no "great uproar of applause". Some people like it, some do...

Re: Liberty Parkway

Did anyone else see the article in the Liberty Tribune about the development for a section of land where the LP will connect to 35N.  There is a developer that wants to build a "mini" zona rosa.  The idea seems solid and would really be somewhat nice to start the area off.
