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.

I wish they would have left that bump-out orange. I liked that pop of color.

I'm a big fan of contemporary/modern architecture, but 1800 Mercier looks terrible. The materials look cheap, and it looks like someone got punched in the face.

Facade composition is something of a lost art. The window placement and scale is pretty poor.

Found this house while I was looking for something else. It was located around 1720 Summit.

1940 and Today.
