Re: 1822 Main Redevlopment

FWIW there are no parking minimums here. The developer is building based on what the market is asking for. I wish it had 0 parking, but it is what it is...

Question: What are the plans for the parking lot in front of the building's entrance?

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

I'm excited about this project, anything that adds housing and density is usually a win in my book, but damn, there is too much parking.

Re: OFFICIAL: Wallstreet Tower ( was:US Bank Tower going condo)

This is great! This part of the CBD is in desperate need of more ground floor retail. Glad to hear it's open to the public.

This is a fabulous addition. KC is underserved by rooftop bars and this place will be a huge success. Love this property.

It's really too bad these aren't condos, they would fly off the market.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

There is a big disconnect between Power and Light/CBD and the Crossroads. You don't need to deck the trench to fix that. Highways are a physical barrier that have been used to divide neighborhoods for decades. Capping the highway and creating a park or development is vital to restoring a connection...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I'm absolutely all for an I-670 deck park a la Dallas. I think the space would be incredible, and likely very well used. However, if given the choice, I'd rather invest ~$100m in a rebuild of Penn Valley Park, our already extant downtown central park, complete with skyline views, wooded bluffs and ...

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

A few concrete columns are peaking up above ground level on the north side. This project is going to be absolutely massive. Agreed - this project is going to be a game changer. I’m super pumped for the retail on top of the 100s of new unites/residents that will call DTKC home. It’s going to connect...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Great news! While the article highlights the bar/store aspect more than the grocer element, this will bring some more livability to the area. Hopefully this will be a fancy (and probably overpriced...) bodega.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Wow. KC (potentially) getting a Palm would be a big win. It’s one of my favorite spots in the hamptons and is well know. Not surprising that it’s (potentially) being added given the Tisch family connections.

Great infill project. This area really needs a bodega/some retail. It is dense enough to support it.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Stop complaining about this hotel. It's an excellent infill project that brings a new and well-known brand to KC. The hotel market is at saturation and couldn't support a bigger hotel (e.g. 2000 rooms) yet. KC is not Chicago -- we are competing with Indianapolis, Louisville, Memphis, St. Louis and m...

Re: 1800 Walnut

Not exactly the building it could have been but is still a huge urban infill project. 18th Street is quickly becoming a dense, fun, walkable part of the XRoads. Cannot wait to see what happens when this project comes to life along with City Club nearby. Combined, both projects will add 550+ housing ...
