Kansas City West Bottoms Renaissance???

Here's the latest real estate scheme celebrated by "journalists" eager to tout the gentrification agenda of local big money developers. Take a look:

After 2 Years And A Huge Federal Arts Grant, Kansas City's 'West Bottoms Reborn' Arrives

The Central Avenue Bridge, erected a century ago, is only 22 feet wide. The level that remains open to traffic sits in the shadow of the deck above, another 22 feet away. Driving across it, from Missouri into Kansas or Kansas into Missouri, feels like an act of loud levitation.

Just another temporary Millennial fad that will eventually DIE out soon, as the young ones grow up and move into other more grown up shit !

My neighbor's company has been located in the bottoms for years. They desperately wanted out. Traffic, crime, loiterers, gunshots randomly piercing their building windows, etc.

They're moving to Johnson County this fall.

Like it or not but Kansas City doesn't have enough people and support to maintain a "vibrant downtown" like other cities that have higher levels of sophistication, education levels and such. It's just not going to happen except for small pockets here and there. Get over it, KC. Just be Kansas City.

I think someone should start a campaign called "Let Kansas City be Kansas City"

Oh shit, now the West Bottoms is coming into media attention - that means the City an the "Better Class of People" will start screwing around with it and fuck I up just as badly as the did Westport n the late 60s and the Crossroads in the 2000s.
