There will be a huge number of units coming online in downtown kc during 2017. I really think the city core is starting to turn the corner.

There also rumors of a proposed 14 story apartment building smack dab in the heart of Westport on the surface parking lot at 40th Terr. and Pennsylvania.

1925 MAIN STREET, City Club Apartments.

Everytime I'm on the streetcar and drive by this location I cringe a little. I'm so happy that they are finally doing something with this. :cheers:

Wow, I love the design and the way they are saving the midwest hotel. It looks like a dense block of many different structures. Very nice. Thanks for posting!

Well....pretty big downer. I mean this is one ugly hotel. Oh well, at least downtown will get some much needed new rooms.

It's been value engineered, but HNTB isn't exactly a ground breaking firm either. In the end, it seems no different than the nearby Marriott or Sheraton.

At least make it a single tower twice the height rather than the L shape.

Crazy, Ingram's magazine has a different rendering for it, which looks better than the one you showed.

That rendering in Ingram's Denver's Hyatt Convention Hotel. It opened several years ago. It didn't quite turn out like the rendering, similar height though. Also about 300 more rooms than KC's.

Hopefully KC's turns out better than the rendering. KC just needs the hotel rooms right now, maybe more stylish hotels will follow.

The new KC Hyatt rendering reminds me of the Baltimore Hilton convention hotel (also subsidized by city). Pretty bland, about 800 rooms, L shaped, 20-25 floors wrapped around large ballroom space, but gets the job done. Hopefully it won't lose money like the Baltimore hotel has though.
