Yes pursuing an outdoor activity center would get so many more people down there to utilize and become comfortable. If there is anyway we could get a city museum like St. Louis I could see it doing well down there too

Not really just outdoor activity but the context and flow of modernism integrated into late 1800s grit. And KC/STL should be offering different experiences, not mimic each other.

I think some paving and landscaping throughout the West Bottoms would do wonders to make it feel more like a place. I know the dirt roads are a bit of a novelty....but I think that'll wear out pretty fast once more people live in and visit it.

The scale of the west bottoms is truly staggering. I'm sure there are very few industrial areas from this era and of this scale in the midwest. It's like a whole town tucked down there.

I like how West Bottoms Flats came out. Just need to replicate this many times and you got a really special area. Really, more special than now.

Here is a building that I believe is new to the market - the Laramie Tires Building at 1201 Union. Looks like it could have good potential. 120,000 sq ft:

This building still appears to be on the market, but a Special Use Permit application was recently submitted on Compass: "Sporting event venue indoors. Dodgeball with Bows and arrows, gaming sports."

Dodgeball with bows and arrows sounds dangerous.

It's certainly a unique concept. Should do well for those wanting to do something different.
