• Admin Updates

    Hey all,

    If you haven’t realized, this site went a bit dormant the past couple of years. Not sure why, I definitely have enough pictures to keep it updated. I have been occasionally posting pictures elsewhere with this site’s watermark; will try to work on getting those pictures actually on this site.

    Will probably push some drafts out that were all ready to go before I just sat them down and forgot.

    Also, that email I have on the side of every page has also been apparently inoperative for a significant amount of time. Yay. I did some back-end work this morning to hopefully straighten that out.

  • The Residences at New Longview – August 2015

    Some info on this site is out of date. In the last couple of years, the undeveloped land at New Longview went through a “friendly foreclosure” and now a company called Mariner from Leawood owns the land. They moved forward with building more apartments, and many of those buildings are now ready for occupancy.

    This post shows progress on the new apartment buildings as well as some shots from around the neighborhood.

  • KC Streetcar Progress – April 2015

    Took these along the line a couple weeks ago, but as usual, there’s some lag between when I take pictures and when I get time to process and post them on this site.

  • One Light Progress – April 2015

    Here’s an assortment of views around the new One Light tower. It is located on the northwest corner of 13th and Walnut Streets. These pictures were taken on April 25th, and I believe the tower is very close to being topped off at its 25 story height.
