Building The Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar Extension Despite Voter Opposition

As the Feds still try to work out a budget, there's very little funding on the table any time soon. AND the latest streetcar election requires CITYWIDE voter approval. Still, new drawings are nice. Take a look:

Planned Streetcar Extension Spurs Redevelopment Of Midtown Kansas City Hotel

The 11-story former Netherlands Hotel is slated to be redeveloped into 110 apartments, part of a Main Street development surge linked to the planned streetcar extension. The decrepit Netherlands at 3835 Main and its neighbor, the former Monarch Storage building at 3829 Main, are part of a more than $30 million redevelopment plan being pursued by Exact Partners.

This is great. Since they want to build because of the streetcar, they won't require incentives. !!!
