I'm aware of Observation Park--it has great views and actual park space. But I'd take one a little closer as well, nothing against Observation Park.

Kansas City is already blessed by numerous public park areas with glamour skyline views thanks to the topography and mostly George Kessler.

I may be jumping the gun, but so far the Westside Flats build seems like a nice addition to the area, and the final build along 17th St. will be much much nicer (IMO) than the initial renderings. After all of the arguments back and forth, EPC built underground parking with no tax abatement (after threatening to build a surface lot next door because of their inability to build underground - TBD if they will add spillover surface parking). There is no pleasing some of the NIMBYs in the Westside, but it appears that EPC did ultimately listen. I was probably in the minority in the neighborhood in that I was fine with a small commercial space, but I did have a big issue with the abatement request.
