Wow. This is interesting. It should be noted that this feature was paid for by the Kansas City Development Council....it's a puff piece. What proof of this do I have you say?

Here you go:

I guess if you are going to buy publicity, you may as well go all out like this I suppose.

KC is the fastest growing metro in the midwest outside of Chicago and the TC.
It's a great story that business leaders will want to know about.

^What did you expect from an article written and funded by KC developers ORDgasm? 100% truth? As soon as I read the first pragraph the bias in the article was so obvious that it prompted me to do a search and find out where the article came from. The way this article was thrust upon the members of this forum as a neutral article written by Forturne is laughable. So transparent.

^KC has made progress, no one is denying that. As for me being jealous, I think not but you're entitled to your opinion. The only problem I have is that you attempted to post what in reality is nothing more than a paid for 8 page advertisement in Fortune magazine and pass it off as an objective peice written by Fortune. You forum is back online now. Why come here with this farce KCMike/Angelo/LJK/[email protected]/Raytownthug/KCSkylinelover? And why keep making more and more screennames?

Mike, would you please quit telling lies/half-truths to these people?
The KC metro is actually at 2 million people, not 2.4 million.
You cannot put a figure on new construction, but construction has increased tremendously compared to the 1990s.
We have currently about over $2 billion in redevelopment Downtown, since 2000 that number (cumulative) is probably close to $4 billion.

Angelo, it is definitely not true that we are the fastest growing metro outside Chicago in the midwest.

Also not true that we are the largest rail center, Chicago is the largest rail center... However I noticed the subtitle which says something like "#1 by tonnage" which I guess might be true...

No wonder people don't trust KC boosters on here, I never realized how much half-truths were being told... At least now i'm here to correct them.

Lighten up and why do you act like you know me? I don't know who you are.
You have just 2 posts and they are trolling responses behind my posts about KC.
You seem to be full of hate and self-loathing.
KC is a great place, you should visit once and find out.

I posted what the article said.
If you have a problem with it keeping you up nights you should contact the people that wrote it and let them know that you are an expert on everything.

Yes I know you Michael...

That is, unless your not Michael, then I've never seen you on the KC Development forum. And if your not from that forum, then I have no idea how you know GRID...

And yes, i'm KCDevin, that is not big news... I just changed names, I wanted ICXC deleted, but someone in the forum issues section advised I just create a new email and a new account, so I did.
