I really think the Tailleur people could open a concept anywhere and turn it into a success. They are about to take a 3rd building on with limited parking/site distance and turn it into another hot spot.

Went to Tailleur last night for the first time. FANTASTIC vibes inside. Good Sazeracs too

They finally repainted those green lanes. Westport already looks better! Now once they get the Riot Room building rebuilt and fix the side walk by World Market that looks like it was dipped in acid it will finally look like a presentable entertainment district. Next step after thar should be fixing up/developing the Eastern part that heads to Main St.

I’d love to see the park at Westport and Broadway redone. It would go a long way to jumping Broadway and moving toward the streetcar. It’d make a good outdoor dining area.

Does anyone know what the deal is with the blocked off area along Broadway (The Washington St, Broadway 40th St/Terrace Triangle) and They put up a bunch of white bollards that appear to be permanent. Thought it was a bike lane but it’s a huge area that's been blocked off.

That's super weird, NEgoofyfoot. I have no idea why they would do that.

Yes, traffic calming at one of the most dangerous intersections in KC.


Eventual goal is to use the new space for people!

That makes sense & definitely needed. Thanks for the insight, could make for a great little urban park like they have in Times Square or Herald Square, or a spot for food trucks to gather!

I am not sure what the budget is but a people-oriented space is the goal.

Maybe they can paint the space and let it go to shit like every other street mural they've done

I am disappointed by how quickly any paint wears away. Why are we not using colored asphalt or concrete?

Yes, it seems foolish to use paint when there is the likelihood of a lot of wear and tear, and expansion/contraction of the surface from heat/cold.

The project in Westport is part of a small PIAC request that was approved a couple of years ago. The intent of the request was to take back some space from the street using bollards and working with stakeholders to improve the spaces for activity. Westport Regional Business League / Multistudio / StreetSmartsKC have been working on this for awhile now. It is a work-in-progress.
