Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

As for Armour Corners, Cassel said construction should begin in mid-summer on the 110-unit building at 520 E. Armour. A revised plan for the larger residential and retail component on the four corners of Armour and Troost is expected to be presented to neighborhood groups soon. Mac has been working...

Re: Troost developments

On the agenda for the PIEA meeting on March 21st is the authorization of a blight study and development plan for The Landing. I don't see any indication of what might be in the development plan. I guess we will just have to wait and see. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wbhjrs6wdmwwkcd/AACTbzP9W6iakFGcVY2...

Re: Union Hill Development

I do think that stretch of Gillham flies under the radar. I have had several occasions where I have had people meet me and the Filling Station and they expressed that they didn't know that area existed. If Milhaus/UC-B exercise their option on the remaining land south of Gallerie, and 31 Levy ever h...

Re: Plaza Residential Development

The final plan has been submitted for the project at 44th and Belleview, now called West Plaza Flats. The rendering looks pretty much the same, although the pool has been eliminated. The big difference is the change in units, down to 104 from 138. However, I'm guessing the total number of bedrooms h...

Demo has started on this building. I still haven't seen/heard anything of the revised plan for this site. You would think MAC would want to get the ball rolling on the approval process.

Re: Academie Lafayette

Citizens of the World has been adding a grade level every year. Their stated plan was to do that through High School. I believe they also said they would have 2 elementary locations (and maybe 2 middle schools), but I haven't heard of any movement on that front. I believe they started K-3 and the or...

Re: Westport

The 3 car parking lot seems like a silly use of space, but otherwise, I wouldnt mind this.

A restaurant with rooftop bar and sidewalk patio seems like a good use for that lot.

Re: Academie Lafayette

I didn't realize they were offering elementary at the Brookside location now. So is it K-3 at either location, 4-5 in Brookside and 6-8(+) at the old Derrick Thomas? Anyone know if that is the plan indefinitely? Is the High School starting next year? Citizens of the World is also putting their 6th g...

I don't know how old this rendering is, or what the likelihood of it being built is, but I found this on a listing on Block's website for the little lot just south of Broadway Cafe.

Re: Brookside

I know your comment may be tongue in cheek, but there was actually an article a while back that the administration at AL was concerned that school was too white and they were trying to do more minority outreach. Hard to say why they are on KCUR. Technically, no one advertises on KCUR. Maybe they hav...

Re: North Plaza Hotel- 46th and Broadway

I don't see any indication of the flags - not sue if the developer even knows. It seems likely that it would be two brands under the same company.

Since there was previously a plan for a north Plaza Hyatt, I think Hotel 1 being Hyatt Regency and Hotel 2 being Hyatt Place could be a good guess.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

I think KC is over saturated with barcades, and none of the newcomers seem to match the success and quality of Up/Down. As discussed in another thread, KC seems to be adding restaurants/bars/entertainment options at a faster rate than residents or jobs. Still, I'm a little surprised at how Martini C...

Re: North Plaza Hotel- 46th and Broadway

Hotel 1 is where the Commerce Bank with drive through is located. Hotel 2 is a vacant lot and parking lot.

It shares the block/wraps around the Residence Inn.

Hotel 2 will be select service, 130 rooms. Comparing the "Project Programming" breakdown to the floor plans shown, I ...

It looks like UCB has a tenant lined up for the Firehouse on Troost. I haven't heard who it is, but the change of zoning request has the potential to be a restaurant. In other UCB news, they are in the process of selling their apartment developments on 36th and Gillham and 63rd and Holmes to Lane4. ...
