Quite nice. I didn't see any aerial shots of Southpark or Ballantyne. That would have been nice. We still have a heck of alot of surface lots. Looks like KC really is a bigger city. LOL!!!!

Looks pretty nice, but also looks like a nightmare for walking.

Boise, ID. I lived there for the past several years before moving back home to Austin. Boise was once a cool, clean, vibrant city but has seen tremendous growth over the past 10 years, being Californicated to the most heinous extent. The population is now around 200,000 and growing daily and it has lost most of its initial charm. It could now easily pass for Anytown, CA.

Pretty much. Some of the newer stuff tries to pay a little attention to the pedestrian, at least. The good thing is that the area has the bones to be retrofitted into a more urban area.
