Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar Elitist Gentrification Hype Reboots 2021

This time around luxury bars & restaurants for the upwardly mobile serve as the selling point for the next phase of the toy train that's running through a rough part of town and forcing out working-class Midtown residents.

Here's yet another pitch . . .

Midtown revitalization takes shape with businesses opening, streetcar expansion

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City's Midtown revitalization is starting to take shape. Near the corner of 39th and Main streets, the restaurant and bar Canary KC opened on Friday. "It's a mad dash," Canary KC owner Keely Edgington said as she prepared to open for business.

I will shit that business down as fast as I can. There WILL be Health Inspectors checking on people wearing their slave masks and if the curfew is not followed there will be enormous fines.

The Pharaoh has spoken!

I will report them daily and do it under the name of Karen.

The story is a City PR fluff piece designed to distract from the massive wave of pandemic-related closures. KSHB is simply the station that took the bait this time.

Same old crap; bars, restaurants, and tax supported, market rate apartment bldgs. There never seem to be any jobs created with high enough wages to live in those apartment buildings. And streetcar is not done revitalizing downtown yet; take a look at all the empty storefronts from 6th Street to Power & Light on Main St.

^^Correction: YOU can't afford to live there. YOU don't go anywhere. You've never been to any of the bars or shops there. Those of us in the know already know. Not you grampy, so why don't you just shut your cock holster?
