Re: NE Corner of 14th & Wyandotte (300 unit apartment)

But something is better than nothing We said this for the Waddell Reed building, and I think that has to be the last time we do that for a tower. For example, the more time goes on, the more the Waddell tower just seems so ridiculous not having ground floor activation there. As the area arounds it ...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

From the Royals presentation rings music to my ears: "Only 15% of the office pipeline in Kansas City is planned to be located downtown. A ballpark-anchored district can bolster the commercial market in the urban core." https://kcballparkdistrict.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/kcr-presentat...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Know it's off topic but still hilarious to see someone mention Johnnie Morton as a superstar on the same level as Mahomes. The Chiefs are infinitely more popular now than they were the last vote go around. Sure, Arrowhead was indeed louder back then & probably had better support, but they weren...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

They already tried the roof once and it failed to pass. Different era. Way different era. The Chiefs are prob the biggest team in American sports now, with the biggest star. They've given the city everything. People will back them. You apparently were a toddler back then, so I can forgive your igno...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Now that the Chiefs are Super Bowl bound, no doubt we can expect the Chiefs in their offseason to come to the taxpayer trough with their stadium proposal. This is actually a hot take. If the Chiefs win the Super Bowl next week, given that we’re already in 2023, this offseason might be the smartest ...

I’m glad it’s Lux. They’re one of the few that actually builds when they say they’re gonna build it. I’ll give them that.

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

What’s frustrating me is that this is actually a really good deal the ownership is offering financial-wise, and nobody’s getting it. Most owners aren’t willing to fork over anywhere near a billion and then only ask you to extend a tax that’s literally already in place. Dude, I don't known if you're...

I think they can get it passed without the Chiefs, I just think the Chiefs would make it alot less stressful.

Any other new news? The presentations are up online This one. It's really dumb though. KC architecture firm @Populous says they have identified several lots, city parks, open spaces that will provide tailgating for #Royals Fans. @kmbc https://twitter.com/jacksonKMBC9/status/1620568372726603777?s=20...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

I’m 100% positive the new stadium location will be the East Village. In terms of it actually getting built, I’m not so bullish. The theater around the surrounding ballpark district is what bothers me. If you just promised a new stadium, that would be more than enough. Don’t try to entice people by ...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

You guys are delusional. Super bowls and towers? I don’t see it that way, honestly I don’t disagree with the above points in the slightest. A Royals vote alone can’t pass, especially with their so far abysmal public engagement. Rolling with the Chiefs support though, a vote would have much better l...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

I love that Royals is selling their downtown district as a way to attract retain office jobs in KC specifically downtown. I would love to look at the field from my desk. Good idea to try and use this as a way to attract jobs Do we know yet how many towers/buildings they are actually planning to bui...
