Celebrate Downtown Kansas City Turning Into A Glorified And Gentrified Shopping Mall

Local news relentlessly hypes the housing bubble despite so many empty and leveraged condos and lofts Downtown . . . Example: Remember then they said "One Light" was sold out? But the website shows plenty of apartments still available. Here's a more upbeat take on the irrational exuberance supported by tax breaks and sleazy comment troll consultants paid to advocate for corporate tax breaks: Urban Living Tour to highlight advantages of living Downtown

Subsidized apartments all over the place and still only two places to shop; an overpriced grocery story and a filthy CVS. Merchants are investing their money in Downtown.

Interesting that Alex wanted to live close to the streetcar line. Now he needs to start riding it to help them get their ridership numbers up.

"But it wasn't close enough to the action".
Go to downtown KCMO some Wednesday night.
"The action" pretty much consists of traffic signals turning from one color to the next.
And a silly empty streetcar waddling down Main Street.
The city that never sleeps!
Hahahahahahaha!!

I guess I will have to go downtown on the street car for this just to see what pisses you off. If you have a problem with me, tell it to my face on the 10th. I'm always in a Mizzou Grad coat with highway department cap.

But I know none of you will do anything to me. Just remember that whenever you are behind the wheel I own your stupid sorry internet troll asses. Just remember that next time you are sitting forever at a red light.
