Discuss items in the urban core outside of Downtown as described above. Everything in the core including the east side (18th & Vine area), Plaza, Westport, Brookside, Valentine, Waldo, 39th street, & the entire midtown area.
Yes, but I think this will bring/is bringing increased vacancy rates in the near future. Perhaps, the owner is fine with that, they’d prefer a 80% rented rate at $30 compared to 97% rented at $20. My thought is that a lower rented percentage will also begin dropping prices. Balancing act. I’d take the consistent burn for a long stretch over slamming on the gas and risking a breakdown.
Yes perhaps they could come to some understanding and add in amenities into open spots for a lesser rate in order to be able to drive more traffic total
And that’s why I think the Plaza needs to lean into its escapist origins. Maybe even try to get businesses with actual connections to Spain. We’re Seville’s sister city after all. Make the Plaza fun!
Running of the Bulls down Nichols Rd? Miller Nichols pushed the Seville thing with the Giralda Tower (The Cheesecake Factory Tower of Enormous Portions?) and the Seville Light Fountain.
CBRE says that Plaza vacancy actually improved from 3.1% in Q2/2019 to 2% in Q3. Will be interesting to see next couple quarters with the recent exodus...

1940 tax photos of the north side of 46th Terrace.moderne wrote: ↑Mon Dec 30, 2019 2:45 pmI lived on 46 Terrace where the empty lots now are. My apartment was in the building right in front of the remnant of fountain in the retaining wall. One bedroom with sunporch, view of west half of plaza for $420.00. Even with new things like Saks the Plaza still functioned as a neighborhood center as well as the locale for high end retail.
As for "Save Our Plaza": when I lived there a college chum from Europe stayed a week. Nearly every morning when I woke, he would be in the sunroom
and would remark how it reminded him of home. Years later, when I told him how that entire street had vanished he said in Europe it would have not happened/could have not happened.
South side of 46th Terrace.
Wow, Fang, thanks for the photos. Looks like my old sun porch was still just a porch before windows were put in. Will never forget the night one of the windows imploded(but did not break) the night of the explosion at the south KC 71 highway work site. The sound wave traversed the city and came right up the hill. Ma Barker and her boys were said to have lived on the street for a period but I never was able to find out which building.
Fantastic photos fang, thanks. Would love to see the East side repopulated with homes like those.
