Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

The residential part doesn't have to be completely condo. You attach one of the lower floors of the hotel to an adjacent apartment building either on Baltimore, or the parcel just north on Wyandotte. This allows easy passage for food delivery and housekeeping service. Build a 15-story tower and make...

Re: 10th and Main Southwest Corner (former transit center)

Back in the late eighties downtown office boom there was a post modern mid rise with a curved facade along the intersection proposed. The Star had renderings. Would love to be able to find said renderings. The KC Star donated it's news article clipping library to UMKC's Miller Nichols Library. It's...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

The one problem I can see with a dedicated bridge though is maintenance cost. A shared bridge means that maintenance for the span will be a shared one, where a dedicated bridge will be the sole responsibility of the streetcar authority.

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

I can assure you of one thing. Even the rural crowd who want to screw Kansas City and St. Louis over almost any issue will beat their local state legislators with crowbars, and any sitting governor, if they don't come up with state money to keep the Chiefs -- because Missouri cannot be without an NF...

Re: Restoration of City Control Over KCPD

The recall effort is a fear reaction. At least wait until there is a public plan for how funds would be reallocated, and what they are trying to accomplish by doing so. I must say though, that when you can't get police to show up at 14th and Grand (five blocks from Police headquarters) to stop cars ...

Re: 18th and Vine

It will never work at 18th and Vine in its' present state. The elements that make pedestrian malls successful are being near a university, or already a tourist destination with a lot of foot traffic. None of these elements exist there. There is not enough population density to create demand for exis...

Re: 18th and Vine

Bad idea. Pedestrian malls fail more times than not. The successful pedestrian malls are mostly near a university, or are in areas with high tourism, and lined with vibrant retail stores, restaurants, and bars. It's where there is ALREADY a lot of foot traffic, and that doesn't exist at 18th and Vin...
