Re: Three Light

I'm not sure when the rights got extended, they snuck that in. I don't think H&R needs much space and I'm not apart of the negations happening. I assume H&R Block sought those development rights for the second tower back when they were expanding into banking, investments, and financial serv...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

Just throwing it out there... H&R Block’s new CEO, Jeff Jones, is a former Target executive. That is a notable insight. It wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility that he might mention to his former colleagues that downtown Kansas City has enough population now for an urban Target store. I...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

It's a recommendation. Depending on the situation, and sitting City Council at any given time, that height recommendation can disappear. If Cerner wanted to build several 40-story towers in the Crossroads at 20th and Grand, 20th and Oak, or Wyandotte and Southwest Boulevard, and bring thousands of n...

Re: 909 Wyandotte

But it doesn't appear that he plans to build it. He is getting out of real estate. A redevelopment proposal that would allow construction of a five-story apartment or hotel project above an existing garage at Ninth and Wyandotte has been filed with the city as part of a plan to sell the property .

Re: 909 Wyandotte

There is no developer yet. Rick Powell is just filing a plan with the city that he can then turn around and try to sell to a developer--I assume after he gets City approval.

Second fire in a week at the former Howard Johnson's / Ramada Inn -- this time on Christmas Eve. Someone seems determined to burn this building down.

Re: 3314 Main

The best thing that could happen is that the same developer buys all the street frontage on the west side of Main from Linwood to 34th Street and demolishes everything except the ABC Warehouse, and the 3-story building at 3240 Main. Then that developer could fill out the rest of the block with a 6-s...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

It would be useful to have a Ace or True Value hardware store downtown. It doesn't have to be a large version with outdoor furniture/mowers/nursery, but one with a lot of the smaller household stuff apartment residents need. This would be a good location for one. The empty storefront on the west sid...

East Bottoms: Former Ramada Conference / Howard Johnsons

The City could be on the hook for the cost of demolishing the former Ramada Inn Conference Center/Howard Johnsons in the East Bottoms--after a fire. I don't know why the City would take on the cost of demolition if there was someone willing to buy and renovate it. Abandoned KCMO hotel goes up in fla...
