    KC Living/Gamewatch

    Moving to KC this weekend and am trying to line up some apartments to view. Does anyone have any recommendations for leasing companies? Right now, I am looking at three places through KC Loft Central on Saturday morning. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, where should I drag the girlfriend to watch the football game on Saturday?

    Thanks guys!

    Re: KC Living/Gamewatch

    If you are renting, live close to a fun area. Plaza is great. You can rent a whole home at a reasonable rate. River market has some good spots, as well as the Crossroads area.

    Gamewatch: Kelly's in Westport is a no-brainer, but I have also done the Other Place in Overland Park. Good amount of Cyclones in KC.

    Just moved into the Stuart Hall Lofts and absolutely love it! We went through KC Loft Central as well.

    Re: KC Living/Gamewatch

    OP and Kelly's are def good place to watch the game. Where are you going to be working/schooling? That could be a major factor on where you want to live. Welcome to KC!

    Office is at Wyandotte and 12th downtown but I will be traveling quite a bit. I know next to nothing about KC but since I'm young (26) I am thinking Plaza/downtown are the places to be.

    Re: KC Living/Gamewatch

    There is no scheduled alumni game watch this weekend since the alumni group is taking a bus trip to the game but Kelly's would be a good bet to watch the game at.

    If by no brainer you mean stay away. The place sucks, IMO and is a bad place to watch a game. The only reason it is consider an Iowa State Bar is because a big group of people watched basketball games there, but not anymore.

    The Other Place is decent, but it is a Hawk bar.

    I personally watch my games at the Brooksider, there is usually a fair amount of Clone fans but I am assuming it will have a good amount of KSU fans this weekend. I watched the OU game at the New Johnny's on 95th and Antioch. TV's are everywhere, but not all Johnny's are this good.

    Sounds like Power and Light would be the best as it is closer towards the airport.

    Re: KC Living/Gamewatch

    I lived in Quality Hill and loved it. You could walk to work. Lots of different floor plans and buildings. Close but not too close to Power and Light. Has a YMCA in the heart of the properties.

    I would also browse the private adds. Lots of loft and condo owners renting right now for cheap because the market is not there to sell. Being young (and assumed single) I see no reason to look anywhere outside of the Downtown/Crossroads/Plaza area.

    Kellys and Brooksider are both good. OP is a great place to watch a Hawkeye game if you are into that.

    Be sure to join the KC ISU Alumni Club. It's a very active group. Bus trip to Manhattan this weekend.

    Is Quality Hill in the western part of downtown? I'm planning on renting for a year and then probably looking to buy a house.

    It looks like I'll be going to Kelly's this weekend and will be joining the Alumni Club ASAP. The DC Alumni Club is not that great.

    Yes. Quality Hill is a series of properties (apartments, condos, townhomes) in and around 11th and Broadway that are both for rent and for sale. They just remodeled a bunch of condos and townhomes a few years ago and put them up for sale. They were well done. If you could rent one of those from a private owner I would highly recommend it. Otherwise, the rentals have all kinds of different buildings and floor plans.

    Rentals:

    Kansas City Apartments - Quality Hill Apartments and Condominiums

    Condos for sale (maybe they assist owners with rentals):

    Quality Hill Condominums | Downtown Kansas City's Historical Neighborhood | 816.472.HOME

    if you want to come out to the south to watch the game there will be a group of us at the TAnners Sports bar at 119th and US 69 hgwy. Real easy to get to.
    I wont besmirch the others but like many have said, Kellys was from the old days and not quite the same nor is Westport. Other place is too many hoks.
    Brooksider is good as they have remodeled and have almost as many TVs as Tanners.
    Good food and good view usually.
    Welcome to KC!


    Making a difference everyday!
