I suppose this makes this the latest rendering.

Hyatt out, Loews in as new downtown KC convention hotel investor and operator
Quote:


Hyatt is out but Loews Hotels and Co. is in as a major investor, partner, and operator of Kansas City’s planned downtown convention hotel, the development team announced Wednesday.

Development attorney Mike Burke said Loews will be a joint venture partner with KC Hotel Developers LLC, and its investment will be “substantial.”

You guys just got an upgrade. It's happening. Hyatt would have been a 3 star-ish convention hotel. Loews will bring 4 stars and some luxury.

Oh, i know it's an upgrade, I've seen the Loews in Chicago. When i typed that i thought that Hyatt pulled out but now i've done a little more digging and have a better understanding. That's the result of typing before I read. #lessonlearned

Y'know, after 2 Light, 3 Light and 4 Light are built, plus the convention hotel, the south side of the skyline is going to be a continuous wall of silver glass.

Looking at the renderings, I don't mind it. I don't want to be one of those "something is better than nothing" guys but right now they are surface parking lots. We have a developer and a hotel group who are willing to invest in our town and the last thing we should do is what the save the plaza/westport groups are doing and scaring off development. Plus the crossroads area will continue to grow meaning that we will have brick high rise buildings in front of the glass wall to break up the monotony. It'll all work it's self out.

P.S. Word on the street is that 3 and 4 light's designs have changed and we should be "pleasantly surprised"
