TKC EXCLUSIVE EXPOSÉ!!! HIDDEN FEES AND PARKING WARS THREATEN DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY LUXURY LIVING DENIZENS!!!
A legion of urban planners, politicos and consultants have promised the rampant downtown high-priced development and "density" would created a "creative-class" paradise in and around the loop.
Unfortunately, the crowded and costly reality for people looking to park their cars near trendy urban new dwellings is far different.
To wit . . .
COMPLAINTS OVER HIDDEN PARKING FEES AND COMMUNITY PUSH BACK OVER STOLEN SPACES NOW CONFRONT LUXURY LIVING SPACES AROUND DOWNTOWN!!!
As always, the problem is worse on the Westside surrounding the new Switzer development.
Here's the word . . .
"Look at their lot. It's empty. But the street around the building is jammed with cars because the residents don't want to pay the $75 monthly parking fee. If they have $1300-month for a one-bedroom, they should be able to cough up a few more bucks. What we're seeing is a proliferation of cheapskates around Downtown who don't mind stealing from longtime residents."
And while neighborhood complaints should be considered, let's look at the issue from the opposite side of the equation . . .
A condo dwelling lady who is not quite as hot as Denise Milani but still offers a valid concern recently answered our questions on this topic:
"My building is straight up stealing. $150 for parking a month in Downtown Kansas City? WTF? $175 for covered parking! I like the convenience but these prices keep going up for parking and it's tantamount to robbery. Worse than that, the cars in our lot still get broken into all the time. It's a scam that targets people who want to move Downtown but don't realize how bad the parking situation has become . . . I wish someone would have told me that this cost is a big part of living in KCMO."
Sadly, skyrocketing prices for parking are simply a fact of life and luxury living space denizens around the loop who aren't yet willing to solely rely on the streetcar, bus or Uber for their transit are forced to pay these surprisingly high costs.
