TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT LOOKS FLIMSY AS CRITICS COMPLAIN OF BROKEN PROMISES!!!



Just as we predicted: The new Kansas City Airport looks like nothing more than glass and plastic garbage.

Sadly, there's barely a peep out of MSM regarding the disappointing pix and animation shared today.

Lesser presser publishing:

KCUR: Glimpse Of What A New Kansas City Airport Terminal Could Look Like

FOX4: Edgemoor unveils new KCI Airport terminal model

Money line:

Although the two-story fountain featured in the original conceptual design is still absent, the architect from Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) assured city councilmembers that they’re working on one, possibly in the retail area.

The first thing that Kansas City residents will see approaching the airport is… the parking garage.

Better than that and EXCLUSIVE for our blog community . . .

KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS DENOUNCE BROKEN PROMISES ON THIS DEAL THAT THEY WARN IS DANGEROUS!!!

Perspective from local tax fighter Citizens For Responsible Government . . .

"A total and complete loss as to why the Mayor and City Council are being allowed to continue with this project. The issue that was put on the ballot and voted on, compared to what is going on now, is like NIGHT and DAY. The cost has gone up at least 50% depending on who is figuring what the New Terminal will cost. Also, we have gone from the original 30 domestic with 5 international gates at 900+ million to now 39 gates at $1.5 Billion. They have added gates to mask the increase in cost they planned on all along. To spend $38.4 Million + per gate is reckless and a total disregard for managing spending at the airport. We all know that $1.5 Billion will not be the end cost and over 30 years the $1.5 Billion will end up costing the flying public (The Tax Payers) close to $3 Billion which makes the end cost per gate $76.9M per gate!!!

"I truly think the Airlines are now realizing with a "Residual Airport Agreement" they will be on the hook for the next 30 years for this unrealistic 39 gate terminal which will not provide ONE ADDITIONAL service that is critical to an airline or airport terminal concerning how they handle the flying public. The airlines are about to lose 42 active gates ( if terminal "A" was in operation 66 gates); for a single terminal with 39 gates that limits growth, stifles competition, creates congestion by putting all passengers in one terminal, and does NOTHING TO IMPROVE THE AIRLINES BOTTOM LINE!!

Best of all . . .

While mainstream media was content to recycle boring presser video, we've added a soundtrack and some observations to the new Kansas City Airport animation.

Take a look:

So we're giving up some architecture that has lasted for 50 years for this building that looks like a drive thru Andy's Custard Shop.

Great plan!

Thanks Sly!

^^^^ Sounds about right.

Oh yeah, and it's 5 billion if it's a dime. Sorry T.

The fountain will be on the 2nd floor and it will be in the men's restroom. A design miracle.

The parking lot design could work, I think underground parking to get to the terminals is a good idea but why no have walkways as well and keep pedestrians out of traffic.

Bad design and poorly thought out. No wonder they have waited so long to show us anything.

What did anyone expect from Sly and this joke of a city council?

Nice beat TKC, hope you got some of that 40 million the city is giving away. But I doubt it. That's only for lawyers and donors in the mayor's race.

They're going to have another vote over Brexit.

There needs to be another vote on the airport.

This is NOT what we were sold.

Greatest Bait and Switch-Con Job in KCMO Political History

^^^ KCMOians will probably just roll over and take it up the ass as always.

Incredible. The airport works perfectly fine for the airlines as is and the only fault is lazy upkeep and maintenance by KCMO "leadership" which is a sick joke at this point.

They scuttled terminal A. One of the most disgusting displays in KC history under the watch of this mayor and city manager. For that alone they should be removed from office.

Tiny airport and bigger streetcar. I think KC is trying to compensate for something.

The terminal looks like a copy of Dulles, except designed by an elementary school class.
And all that glass will be really swell for heating and air conditioning, not to mention a really good thunderstorm with hail.
You really couldn't make up a more unbelievable story than watching this multi-billion dollar fiasco unfold.
And now it won't be long before some of the surprises hidden in the contracts begin to surface. Expensive surprises.
Amateur night on the plains.

how much to pay for the animation, you all are such assholes. This project is a giant scam.
Back to connecting the existing terminals. At worst you get less of a sprawled airport with people conveyor belts than most existing airports in large metro areas.

THe designers of the original KCI knew a lot more about wth they were doing than sly, the council, justus, edgemoor, and SOM and anyone else involve in the new terminal boondoggle. Just terrible, whole chump city should be embarrassed, particularly letting edgemoor get so far, and paid, for essentially doing nothing.

First I want to have those who compare this to an Andy's Custard Stand apologize, Andy's looks much better than this does.
Second, I just can not understand how something so boring can cost so much. There is a crime being committed here and there better be an investigation , QUICK!
