Kansas City, MO - Better Block and more

The following photos entail Kansas City, Missouri, Better Block KC during set-up, and the Bancroft School Apartments project in no particular order. Thanks for looking.

Nice city and pictures! Thanks for sharing.

I like Kansas City. It looks a wide city. Its downtown is interesting.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

Thanks Danny. There's a bit more downtown that's quite interesting architecturally, but I wasn't able to get over there during my time there. Nonetheless, I do like some of the angles I captured in my photos.

It's very much wide, but in a vertical way:

My photos covered only some of the Greater Downtown area and a project on the East Side.

That's a fine town indeed. Lovely pre-war bones and some stylish modern materials too. Always pleased to see it on here.
Well, Missouri's yet pretty lucky for this and St. Louis. Wish them a good bit of fair prosperity for the future.

Mousquet, would you call Jeff. City and let them know. I don't think they realize it.

BigKid, lovely shots. KC has some gorgeous DT architecture.

Some legislators can be a bit misguided at times.
