Official ground breaking ceremony will be October 15th.
?? Why so late?
Scheduling conflicts, HUD conflicts and all that, so even though construction is well under-way, they want to still have an official ceremony.
As an opportunity to announce thier next mega project in E Village that happens to have a baseball stadium fused in. Wink wink.

I think the most underrated project are the 2 in the crossroads, marking the foray into the Crossroads. That’s where you’ll really gonna feel a dense block with that cap.

For the groundbreaking, being off the timeline because of opportunities to start is far from unique.

The streetcar downtown groundbreaking was May 22, 2014
The first track was already finished in ~Oct 2013 because modot was replacing the 670 bridge that fall.

So the groundbreaking was for the remaining work, not the actual start. No big deal.

Sorry I know this is probably a dumb question and off topics — but what are the two crossroads projects?!

I was walking around P&L other day and being away from KC for a while was nice to see P&L area aging nicely. It was a bit sterile at first as expected when doing many blocks at once but it has a really nice feel blended with the hirises. Capping loop and south loop additions should give a nice contiguous feel to Xroads. Foot traffic overall was higher than expected at 2PM.

This makes me feel very old, but I'm guessing there are people that have been members here and on the predecessor longer than you've been alive.

No one believes what you said, and a lot of people here were formative in making it happen.

Your generation needs to continue it. Good luck :)

Driving on the the entrenched South Loop with Two Light, Three Light and Waddell Reed on one side and the Loews Hotel on the other should have quite an urban canyon feel when completed. It will even be more pronounced when (and if) Cordish builds the proposed mixed use project on the south side of I-670. That is, until it is capped.
