So far corporate media has only promoted the words of boosters and fanboys when it comes to the consequences of a Downtown Kansas City baseball stadium.
Now, FIRST ON TKC, we've got EXCLUSIVE INSIDE WORD from LOCAL POWER PLAYERS who are more skeptical of this project not only because of EPIC taxpayer subsidy but also given that effect that the development might have on lower-income and middle-class residents.
The basics on how this project endangers every resident of this cowtown . . .
LOOK CLOSELY AT PRELIMINARY LUXURY LIVING SPACE DESIGNS!!! DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY STADIUM BOOSTERS PROMOTE UPSCALE PLANS FOR BIG MONEY DEVELOPMENT AND EXCLUDE FAMILIES AND GENERAL ADMISSION SCUMBAGS FROM THEIR GRANDIOSE SCHEME!!!
Even supportive baseball park experts find it
Here's the insider word that talks about the real estate ripple effect and offers real life examples . . .
"This isn't just about downtown. The gentrification impact of a new luxury stadium would be MASSIVE and extend across the metro area. We're seeing requests from more luxury living space and development sparked by this project and the only way it works is with high-end rents starting at 2K-a-month.
"With the team in its current position a thrifty family can go to The K for less than 100 bucks if they sit in general admission. Those days are over with a Downtown stadium . . .
"We've seen the same thing happen in Denver, Phoenix and Minneapolis. The rents don't just rise near the stadium, there's a ripple effect across the city because the post-downtown-stadium real estate market becomes inflated overall. So what voters should understand is that this stadium isn't just about new downtown development, it'll threatens to raise their taxes and cost of living again."
Meanwhile, as Coronavirus threatens the world we think it's odd that one of the promotional photos features a note: "Hey CDC, KC Has The Fever" as this town mistakenly suffers the fevered delusion that sports glory will benefit homeowners.
