Re: living at Zona Rosa

.  If Lenexa ever builds a "urbanism" type center, I hope they model it after ZonaRosa.  btw. chicks dig that forever21 place.    The lenexa project should actually have a very diffeent feel if it ever gets done.  It should be far more mixed use than ZR with substantially more residential and o...

Re: Johnny Dare opening a bar/restaurant?

Are they going to take down the giant chrome naked ladies soon?  I hate to think of  out of towner's continuing to get confused thinking they have stumbled into the topless bar district.

^ yes and no depending on the state.  However, doctors and nurses are trained professionals who in theory know what they are doing and thus the law is likely going to distinguish them from joe blow who stops to help out.

Re: How Do We Bring People to the Crossroads On non First Fridays?

Personally I think the xroads market is a good idea.  It helps reinforce the neighborhood as a residential area.  I don't think it is likely to take anything away from the city market either.  The neighborhood folks that will regularly pick up produce here midweek are pretty sure bets to also drop b...

Re: How Do We Bring People to the Crossroads On non First Fridays?

I was driving by today and noticed there's some kind of outdoor mini farmer's market (?) at 18th and Wyandotte.  I guess it happens every Wednesday.  Anywho i thought this was cool, and it looked like it had a nice amount of people milling around. The market that you saw is indeed the newish week...

Re: Pendleton Heights

Personnally I think the West Bottoms have a heck of a lot better chance for success as the next breakthrough neighborhood than the Northeast.  As the central core continues to gentrify the cost of living is going to continue to skyrocket in places like the loop, crossroads, and rivermarket (we are ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Performing Arts Center construction

The acoustics in a big rectangular room like the music hall will never be ideal no matter what you do.  The shape just does not lend itself to sound.  That said, these big commercial broadway shows everyone is all excited about all use super loud amped sound anyways these days so who cares about the...

Just how many northland hotels are there that don't have a nice view of the city financed airport?  Outside of the casinos and a handful outside Liberty I can't think of many.

Re: River Market crime stats?

12 crimes over one year?  That's a lot lower than Midtown or most areas of the city.  Some of those giant aparment complexes in Joco probably have almost that much crime in a year. not twelve crimes - twelve armed robberies.  You would be hard pressed to find any JoCo complexes that had a single ...

Of course I am also always amazed about how many folks in general there are who have no clue what is going on around them at any given time.  I would be willing to bet there were some folks up North who had no idea Zona Rosa was going in until it opened its doors; just as I am sure there are plenty ...

Re: The Union Station KC Rail Experience.

Wow, whoda thunk the station administration would have their sh*t this together -

1) extraordinarily professional and extensive P.R response; and

2) forward thinking attraction/event planning.

All in the same day.  There may be hope yet.
