Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

What does St Louis have to do with the Chiefs going to Kansas? I can see them moving to Kansas honestly. Hell, one of their biggest sponsors is the University of Kansas. The Chiefs would move to KS if MO doesn't help them with the stadium. Won't have anything to do with the Rams situation or St Louis.

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

For reference, the bridge is 1.1 miles from 3rd to 10th. It would have to be really bad weather for the train to take more than 3 minutes to cross. yeah, but you always have a few minutes delay on each end to make sure the single track is cleared etc. It's likely to cause delays. I wouldn't do it u...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

I really don't think it matters that much. The good thing is that KCI will actually have some options for food. ChiFilA's are everywhere including airports in big liberal cities. It has no impact on KC's image that one might be at KCI. But why select something that will be closed on Sundays?

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

Is it true that if they used the HOA Bridge, that it would be single tracked? If so, that seems like a really long stretch of single track.

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

I never said anything about the Chiefs moving downtown. I said they should not move to village west or joco. Don't think anybody has said they are moving downtown.

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

GRID, I remember taking the walking sidewalks when I worked for the IRS many years ago just so that I could admire your incredible shots of KC. I must say that it was the best part of working there. I for one really miss your photos from around town...especially the helicopter ones. You and Eric Bo...

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

I don't give a shit about the Legends either. The problem is TSC is just terrible. If after 40 years all you have is Taco Bell then it is far past time to realize the market has deemed the place as a failure. If they moved the Chiefs to JoCo it wouldn't bother me. Just get it out of TSC. You really...

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

First off....Stadiums don't spur development. Even in downtowns. Any development outside a few bars or something is forced, not organic. Abandon the sports complex, move the stadiums further from downtown so you can buy a couch and a bass boat on the way home from the game I guess. Try and build lig...

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

Light rail is never going to Village West. And it certainly is not going to go from Village West to KCI. Village West is almost 20 miles from downtown and there are only 160k in the entire county. I don't think there is a light rail line in the country that goes 20 miles through that low of density....

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

And if you think Overland Park voters want any part of a light rail line that goes to WyCo or KCMO then you are nuts. Call me nuts. They'd approve a light rail line to Chiefs and SKC stadiums at VW with an extension on to KCI. They better be prepared to pay for it without federal help. That's one h...

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

^ there are only two places light rail will ever make sense in metro KC. Jackson and Johnson Counties and really only two corridors I-70 and I-35. You have to be realistic about what could possibly happen. The Kansas side barely has a bus system and they are going to build light rail? Will they STAR...

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

GRID- wouldn’t being at the Legends with Chiefs, Sporting, Speedway & shopping mall be more attractive for light rail than just a place with only Chiefs by that logic? No, because even with all that light rail doesn't make sense to Village West. The population of WyCo is nowhere near large enough t...

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

A good baseline to follow is to see what Buffalo is gonna do with their stadium situation. They’re in negotiations right now, and let’s see what price tag is and how much the public pays. But Buffalo has a legitimate threat to leave the city, most likely to Toronto an hour to the north. The Chiefs ...

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

Why would we not be fine with the Chiefs moving to VW or some other suburb? They wouldn’t be any further away than they already are. Just pride in being on the MO side? How much is that worth? Because it doesn't make any sense. It just further fragments everything. Jackson County has over 700,000 p...

Re: Downtown ballpark and condos

Even if JoCo were part of a regional tax, why would they not support keeping the Chiefs where they are? It seems like most KS side fans like the TSC where it is. The TSC parking lots, highway access etc are perfect for the Chiefs. Regardless if you renovate or build a new stadium, moving the Chiefs ...

Re: Future Stadium Plans: Chiefs and Royals

I could be wrong but I don’t know anyone who’s living downtown because their job or office is there. Most everyone I know who lives down there is because they want the downtown experience. Although most of my friends are in their 20’s, but I figure that’s most of downtown. But that's my point. Is t...
