Nice. Are they keeping the apartment buildings to the west?
This view is looking NW at the location of the bank drive-thru:

I thought the low-rise buildings to the west are part of the Marriott Residence Inn.
Anyway, they are not part of the project area.

Mundane as hell. Looks like a suburban Aloft hotel put on top of a stack of giant shoe boxes.

Notice how they chose the evening rendering...I'm sure the daytime rendering was too boring to post.

Save the Plaza killed every exciting design.

I agree the design is a touch boning, but if it helps to add more hotel, and some retail to that corner of world great. Plus it in-fills nicely what were parking lots owned by Commerce. Better use of space even if it is a touch boring. Hopefully it will mesh well with everything else along 46th and back up the hill to St. Lukes. A lot of stuff going on in that area with the hospital and new Nursing school. It has spurred some decent development of old beat up houses and vacant land. Would be great if it contiued to creep North into Westport and fill in the spots that need fill

Good to see confidence in KC hotel market considering the core leaned towards overbuilt even before COVID.

With Holiday Inn gone, this is only a net add of 50 rooms.

There are a lot of hotels that may never re-open. I kind of wonder if the crown center Sheraton will re-open. That building needs a major overall and rebranding anyway. Sort of a waste of a sizable tall building that used to be higher end. Could be a potential 4 star hotel flag.

Sheraton is a 4 star flag but that is not a 4 star property anymore.

That's what I mean. It's just a matter of time before the tower is downgraded again.

I remember seeing Weston and Sheraton listed as 3-star properties. The Loews and now Cascade Hotels may force at least one of the CC Hotels to be upgraded. Weston probably has the best location but the Sheraton could be easier since its already closed.
