The greater downtown region (Downtown, Midtown crossing area, North Downtown, and the area just south of the tracks) has around 20,000 people according to 2015 data. Even if you just restrict it to the core CBD/Old Market area you hit around 8,000 people, leaving out big chunks of what's commonly considered downtown.

Is that residents of the area or workers?

Also, looking at it now that residents number has to include a lot of people from outside of downtown as well. Their main downtown census tract, which includes all of their downtown area plus most of the East Village through the Capitol, is estimated to only have around 4,800 people in 2015. IF you add in the southern parts of the East Village plus neighborhoods east of the Capitol you come to around 8,000.

Big fan of Cosentino's in KC since I always stay at the Crowne Plaza whenever I go to KC for a guy's weekend.

I live at the new Highline and would LOVE a grocery store in that big ugly lot with the Wells Fargo drive thru. My lazy |expletive| would still drive there, but it's way better than driving to Bakers.

They should keep the store open 24h so drunk people can stumble in at night to buy food lol
or at least have a separate section for late night munchies open.

Me too. We usually stay at the Marriott downtown. Cosentino's in addition to the groceries and liquor department is good for breakfast and lunch too. So handy. If we are headed to a Royals game we get a lot of our tailgating stuff there on the way to Kauffman.
