TKC OUTLOOK: WOULD YOU BUY INTO KANSAS CITY COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA?!?!
On this somewhat pleasant Kansas City Saturday we want to share some amazing footage and a local alternative perspective . . .
From Youtube creator Tom . . .
"A 4k aerial tour of the Country Club Plaza area using my Mavic Pro and Litchi. Gimbal needs to be calibrated, please forgive left side of video. It was a nice flight though. Music used with permission by Bela Fleck & the Flecktones. "Magic Fingers" off their 1992 album UFO Tofu."
Take a look:
And this KICK-ASS CLIP got us thinking about the big picture . . .
One of the harshest talking points after recent "Mayhem On The Plaza" involved some residents worrying about the value of their million dollar condos in the midst of ongoing violent teen flash mob crisis.
And this got us thinking about value, speculation and local investment overall . . . Consider:
Nordstrom is still slated to move to the Plaza . . . Boosters claim the new streetcar is on the way, Tesla biz is BOOMING in this embattled entertainment district and more than a few high-end restaurants like Rye continue to do not just brisk but ELITE biz.
And all of this begs the question . . .
WOULD YOU BUY INTO THE KANSAS CITY COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA IF YOU HAD THE CASH?!?!
The question is sparked by so many po'folk living in the stix and suburbanites in shoebox houses expressing their overwhelming fear while Kansas City BIG MONEY continues to hold out and build in this part of town. In fact, last year was stellar for residential and office space developers on the Plaza in terms of earning City Hall subsidy.
And so we leave the question to our blog community and confront the tragic fact that fear & greed continue to dominate most decisions of humankind.
You decide . . .
