LIKE IT OR NOT: EPIC PARKING GARAGE POWERS PRAIREFIRE WINNING!!!



Loathsome amateur urban planners dominate the Kansas City discourse and tragically attempt to dominate local development talk with economic theory about density and mass transit that doesn't really represent reality in the Midwest.

Meanwhile . . .

KICK-ASS TKC READERS DIRECT OUR ATTENTION TO A GOLDEN GHETTO BOOM POWERED BY PARKING THAT'S IN SHORT SUPPLY WITHIN THE DOWNTOWN KCMO LOOP!!!

Check it:

KC BIZ JOURNAL: Prairefire, a hit with the public, prepares for second phase

Money quote:

"A new 1,100-space parking garage to serve office tenants and retail shoppers . . . The 1,000-space garage serving the Entertainment District in Prairiefire's first phase has been adequate for the most part."

TKC READER FACT CHECK:

"They get parking garages and Downtown KCMO gets a streetcar. No wonder Prairefire is successful and Downtown just keeps losing more jobs."

KCMO Downtown needs free parking garages and no parking meters. It works on the Plaza and JoCo.

Lulzers. Wonder why it needs a historic level if taxpayer subsidies if it's so successful.

Downtown has made it perfectly loud and clear. They hate cars and people who use them and they are not going to go out of their way to accommodate content Midwestern drivers.

Good luck with kind of of attitude.
