Re: Downtown needs larger police presence

Anyone have updated crime stats? Curious to see if the influx of residents downtown has led to a decrease in crime.

Re: Downtown Hy-Vee concept

It’s been said before on other threads that Kansas scott needs a bodega. While another grocery store would be great, adding three or four bodegas from River Market to Crown center would add a lot IMO.

Re: e-Scooter Share

bspecht, do people with scooters do a pretty good job of staying off sidewalks in DC? There, at least they have bike lanes and enough cyclists that cars know to keep an eye out. Scooter mania is in full force in SF. KC a will struggle to keep them off the sidewalks bc there aren’t enough protected ...

Re: Detroit

Just read "How to Kill a City" and strongly suggest it. Need to check out Detroit and explore how racially divided the redevelopment is and try to learn how gentrification/redevelopment can be more inclusive.

Here's a 250 ft building in NYC being called a tower.

To be fair...250 feet would be ~20-25 stories in a traditional build out.

Not to be a hater but I think it's so funny that a 10-15 story building is considered a tower.

Lots of progress on the site today....Concrete foundation going in on the south side of the project and two new Bay Cranes have popped up too. This thing should be vertical in a few months if not sooner.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Incredible progress in a decade but still a lot of work to do. The new Lights will help fill in but I wonder when the other lots will be developed.

Are any of them for sale?

Not sure on Three Light breaking ground. They want to hit a certain lease percentage before starting which they're very close to BUT, the fiasco with the two city council members pushed things back slightly. Was on a tour today -- the leasing agent said they just hit 50% and raised prices on all un...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I mean, how do you guys not find LED signs to be incredibly tacky? No one actually lives in Times Square, why would any livable neighborhood try to replicate that?

I get that it adds a bit of a “big city” vibe but Don’t think that is the best directions for KCMO.
