Good to see the progress. I moved to Missouri in 1988 from San Jose, lived there through 2002. My parents and I made the trip to Kansas City from Springfield one time because we missed the city life. I think this was around 1991. We were pretty disappointed, but now seeing the progress I hope I can spend some time in kc and St. Louis next time I visit from seattle.

When I look at some of these designs for apartment buildings and, particularly, the Marriott Courtyard, I give thanks I never became an architect!

Being under such a strict budget, bean-counters for the corporation looking over your shoulders, rejecting any ideas that might make the project go over budget, no thanks! I'll stick to fantasy Lego structures, 40 Lego Skyscrapers in my living room alone, not counting the rest of the house!

Anytime I want to put up a 150-story building, I don't even have to deal with Nimby's!

If I were to be an architect, I'd want to build everything like they do in Mexico, concrete all the way, and that would get me fired the first week, my insistence upon it, even a 2-story apartment building with a rooftop deck!

New project UC for downtown (CBD)

Renovation of the former Folger's Coffee Plant at 8th & Broadway into residential.
The NW corner of the downtown loop used to have the pleasant smell of coffee thanks to this plant, but sadly Folger's shut down operations here in 2012. Now it's two buildings are being converted into 151 units.

Some great photos from Eric Bowers:

It does not matter what state or city, all these apartment look like they came out of a cookie cutter machine. They all came from one architect.

Nice!

I didn't start this thread but it looked like it hadn't been updated in a while, so I thought I'd contribute a bit since there is a decent amount of current and proposed development happening right now in the urban core (for KC standards).

KC Biz Journal story

$10 million gift towards new KU Med Bldg

Still a lot of fund raising through philanthropy yet to go before construction nears for this project, but I had not seen renderings for this one before.

Proposed $279 million tower on the corner of 39th and Cambridge streets on the University of Kansas Hospital campus, which will house surgical oncology, neurology, neurosurgery and Ear Nose & Throat specialists. It appears to be eight stories tall.

KC Biz Journal article has more images.










The site is the empty lot north of 39th in this image:
