New KCI Renderings Released But Still No Word On Real Plans On Smaller Airport



Drawings offer the illusion of "news" but there's little real info about how the new airport will look as planners don't really want to show the public the deets of the design.

Here's the artsy substitute . . .

KSHB: Architect unveils new renderings for single-terminal KCI

Photo montage after the jump that only seem to reveal that the new place is smaller . . .

Kansas City ruined a great airport trying to keep up with mostly made of people who aren't interested in coming to Kansas City.

KCI was never a great airport. That’s revisionist history from geezers who flew once a year if that. It was convenient. There’s a difference. Most of you who are against this, will never even use it. It isn’t for you and frankly your opinions don’t matter in the least. You weren’t consulted in its inception,design, and construction, and you won’t be consulted in its operations. Deal with it.

Yeah it wasn't a good airport if you wanted to hang out at but it's the best airport for traveler just catching a flight. I travel a lot and used to go to austin 10+ times a year and when then said the new airport was going to be modeled after that i realized we were in trouble because every other airport is so inconvenient and you'll be in lines for 30 minutes minimum...but at least you'll get a tgi fridays in the terminal so...#winning or something

After the great start on this fiasco by Sly and Justus, the "news" just keeps getting worse and worse.
Completion date: 2030
Cost: At least $3 billion.
KCMO couldn't run a one-car garage.

We tore down a beautiful old building and they are replacing it with a steel box with glass? Is this for real?

That looks like a warehouse with glass walls, and to think it took over eight years and hundreds of millions of dollars and we got....... another picture

WRONG @7:32!
It's a glass box with steel, just like the ones built thirty five years ago because they were cheap. But then, with the impossibility of heating and cooling them, plus the incessant need for emergency repairs, smart Cities started tearing down and replacing this exact design ten years ago.

More cost, less convenience, but hey you can pee without going through security again so yeah we got that going for us.

WRONG @7:40 , concrete, glass and steel is what we had, now it will be a warehouse with all glass walls, terrible cheap ass design. Wide open designs like this are a terrorists dream, not that a terrorist would evar come here to flyover country. Just sayin

What's that white dude looking at? Does he think that Mahomes or is he looking at those legs....

Funny thing Mahomes will be long gone before this piece of... hightek warehouse looking glass box pole barn ever gets built

they should turn it into a new cargo terminal that includes transport and storage of live animals (horses, cows, goats, turkeys etc.) and remodel/connect the other two terminals with a central security entrance.

the facade is a parking garage that leads from the NEW robust cargo terminal to existing terminal B.

Will they have a barn for medical support horses, pigs and goats that need to fly on the plane with their neurotic owners?

really do not see how yo all negotiate the logic of a robust growing downtown, metro, regional population & economy with a smaller regional airport that already has questionable highways and antiquated rail access.

Black guy in a Mahomes jersey with a white girl....and she doesn't seem to have big tits. Not realistic. Black dudes need white princesses with hooters.
