Re: OFFICIAL - 21c Museum Hotel KC (former Savoy Hotel)

I checked the 21c website and they have KC listed as opening in 2017, and all construction here looks like it's a go for sure. They pride themselves on attention to detail and on the artistic nature of their properties. I am not sure about the name, but I am fully confident they will open an incredi...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

This is great!! The trend of bringing more young and creative folks downtown is just what the city needs. This will do nothing but increase the demand for ground floor retail, diversify the types of use in Downtown KCMO and hopefully nudge streetcar supporters to push for a line out to UMKC. Any wor...

Re: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

Does anyone know what the deal is with the building (currently a surface lot) next to the Corrigan Building? The renderings make it appear that they will be replacing the lot with another building.

Can anyone confirm?

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

This looks stunning -- the empty surface parking lots in downtown KCMO are beginning to fill in. I know a lot has been discussed around the all glass facade but think it fits into the area really well.

Re: Three Light

I'd have to assume that occupancy rates from 1/2 light will come into play here.

Does anyone know that One Light's occupancy rate?

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

Loews is an incredible win for KC if this hotel is ever built. They are a step above Hyatt in many ways and having the Tisch family put a stake in the KC ground awesome.

Re: Three Light

While I am not a huge fan of the blue/green style of 1/2/3/etc. Light, I can appreciate the surface parking lots that are disappearing and the hundreds of residents breathing new life into Downtowns KC. The idea of a $1,800 one-bedroom apartment was laughable no more than a decade ago whereas today ...

Re: New Downtown YMCA

This is amazing and will bring a constant flow of pedestrian life from morning to night, while also adding an incredible resource to a growing neighborhood.

As a soon to be homeowner at 7th/Broadway, I cannot wait to see this come to life!
