Re: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

With the larger building fully leased so quickly, you’d think they’d be interested in adding more space.

Re: P&L District: 14th & Walnut Site Proposal

It looks like they're moving this intersection to a four-way stop. The light has been flashing red for the past few days and stop signs have been installed.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Haha oh wow lololol I haven't heard THAT comparison before. Do you also think the streetcar is a BOONDOGGLE? Is it a TOY TRAIN? I you should pay yourself on the back for such staggering originality. Sheesh, I thought it was funny and hadn't seen anyone post it before. I'm very pro-streetcar, live d...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

In the past I have found that simply looking down main st. for the closest streetcar was much more accurate than the time estimates given. Hopefully this addresses some of that.

I'm most impressed by the architecture of these buildings. A lot less econobox action compared to our local developments.
