Why not remove the curbs that limit the sidewalk space and install steel tree well covers like the block to the north? That stretch is such an embarrassing design blunder.
I don't know Dave. You're familiar with design embarrassments, but not in regards to actual physical structures, more of the web-based kind.
Bro why are you taking everything so personally and being such a dick. Everything is flawed nothing is perfect,people understand that. But when you are just using whataboutism and telling everyone their wrong it makes
People trust you less. Just accept feedback and move on

Bro.... I agree the sidewalk in discussion is a mess. I think it’s hilarious that people call me out for being a dick when there’s plenty of dickish comments made on here by others. Dave is one of the biggest dicks on here! He will probably admit that. People say I’m defensive of Cordish but I haven’t seen anyone call Dave our for being hyper defensive about the streetcar or crossroads in general?

And spare me with the “whataboutism” and people trusting me. This is a forum and I’m not trying to get anyone’s vote.

DColeKC, has Cordish ever discussed replacing/re-organizing the sidewalks along Main from 670 to 12th? Those are the worst part of the district, experience wise.
To circle back on this. I did speak with a few higher ups last night and they are exploring options to try and make this stretch of sidewalks better. Sounds like it may not be possible to make it excellent but an improvement can be made.

Troll alert.
Prime example. People are so welcoming on here! Been here two weeks and I’ve been called defensive, a dick, fanboy and now a troll! Might want to re-educate yourself on what a troll is. I’m not trying to distract from anything.

Dave, for the record I do apologize for the personal dig. Not that you’re offended by it, but I made a mistake by doing it.

No surprise with the attitude out of the gate. You forgot "arrogant" BTW.

I can be a prick sometimes though, so...

Confident, arrogant... whatever, this isn’t a safe space and I’ve been called worse. It’s hard to translate people’s true personality on a Internet forum. I’m none of the things said about me in person, but I’m ok with people judging and interpreting my comments however they’d like. Not here to make friends, I’m here to offer a different perspective than I’ve seen presented here before.

Well I know many who are confident that don't come across as self-important but I'll give you benefit of doubt moving forward.

I throw out a lot of crazy ideas here just to get discussion on the bigger picture. And I'll get justifiably bashed if I'm relentlessly nitpicky, which happens a lot - and I'll make an effort to adjust. It's what we do here. When getting slapped, it's probably mostly the approach, not the true person - adjust. And yeah it can be hard to do in a forum.

So back to getting rid of the giganto planter boxes on narrow sidewalks...

Via owners of Protein House - They will be moving out. A new tenant has already been secured.

Landlord has been pushing Mixx to stay open until 6pm but no luck yet.

Flying Saucer management has been taken over by the same company who runs most of the other venues which is ECI.

I really wanted to like protein house but I never found a fit in my life.

Thanks for the updates.

There was something sterile about Protein House, as if cryogenically frozen veges using a flavor extraction contraption. There's a tasty small chain on E Coast called Digg Inn with charred veges, giving it much more dynamic. These are the kinds of 'chains' that would be nice to get downtown, especially the mixed bowl thing going on. A local doing something like this in one of the foodie halls or City Market would work too.

It was also expensive! $13 Bison burger for example.

Wonder how many years it will take to fill the Kaldi's spot at 12th/Main. If Sprint/Tmobile merger happens, could see them combining or expanding into that higher profile spot when Sprint P&L lease is up.

I'm shocked Kaldi's spot isn't filled
