Was in town yesterday and the city is looking great. Top two things on my list. Streetcar and do something with 480 through downtown.

$290 million park/riverfront revitalization ... it's updating Gene Leahy Mall, Heartland of America Park, and Lewis and Clark Landing, which personally I think are pretty cool spaces already today, but there are some great improvements happening with this, including hiding the railroad tracks which have historically separated downtown from the riverfront and making for a space which can host concerts/large public events. A lot of private funding, city will only need to put up $50 million.

Omaha already had a good connection to the river, this will make it tremendous! Wish KC could at least do a similar cover of the train tracks on the river bank.

I visited Omaha back in 2012 or 13 - a couple years after TD Ameritrade Stadium hosted it's first CWS. Downtown, including the Old Market, was looking fantastic. This is going to take the renewal to the next level.

This is my alternate universe version of downtown Kansas City after years of corporate relocations. Click on the image, and then click on the magnifying glass on the upper right side of the image to blow it up. Use the scroll bar to move around the image.

Photobucket revamped their website, and changed the amount of storage for free accounts. It appears the feature that allowed you to enlarge, and zoom, is gone, as it the larger-sized file. I'm sorry about that. I don't use Photobucket anymore to post. I don't even know if I still have that original file anymore. It's probably on an old computer.

This is the only rendering I could find that gets close to showing the pedestrian experience.
