Drove by here today. It's coming along nicely, but the street level experience along Rainbow is awful.

My thoughts exactly when I wait at that 47th St. signal. Dreadful for any peds on Rainbow. I am vacationing this very moment on Michigan Ave in Chicago. There are lots of examples of despondent street experiences here, but never on Michigan Ave. They get the buildings mostly right when they have to cater to the pedestrian. Many of the residential towers are the worst.

I have heard that Woodside has an expensive per month pet rent. Have a friend who would like to live there (needs to live in KS for tax purposes but wants to be as close to the city as possible) but balked at what I am told is a several hundred dollar per month pet fee. Eghad.

This might be a symbol of the care taken in the overall construction of the place. There are always concerns that urban trees don't live very long. Here is the perfect example why. They are planting everything in gravel and construction debris. It is hilarious. You can see in the photo the pile of gravel on the paving...that is the material they dug out to plant the boxwoods. These plants/trees will look terrible and constantly need replacement for the life of the project due to poor planting. What a joke. They topdress it with mulch and no one is the wiser.

Anything exciting for those of us who don't pay for the KC Business Journal?

Not really

Gearing up for a second phase
One highlight of the second phase is 1.7 acres of green space and a 50,000-square-foot expansion of Woodside Health Club.

It includes demolishing existing tennis courts and replacing surface parking with a subterranean parking structure. The project will add eight new tennis courts, four inside and four outside, as well as a four-lane lap pool. Other new features will include expanded group fitness studios, a day spa with eight treatment rooms, locker rooms and dedicated quiet areas. There also will be a boutique that sells items such as athletic apparel, yoga mats and tennis racquets. Phase 2 also adds a wellness center, which will focus on progressive alternative health care.

The club expansion will start first, followed by the addition of apartments and retail. A third phase, still being designed, will include 2.2 acres. When it's all said and done, Tanner & White will have invested about $170 million.
