Re: Tracks 215 Project

Some more documents pertaining to the PIEA agenda item have been uploaded and it looks like this related to a development to the S and SE of the Hilton Home 2 Suites at 20th and Main. The proponent is 2020 Walnut LLC, which is the address of the Superior Moving and Storage warehouse building. They a...

Re: East Side Development

There is a plan to redevelop the Western Baptist Bible College into an office and educational facility, along with building 35 townhomes on the surrounding grounds. It's too bad the other buildings on the campus couldn't be saved. This might be able to help bridge the Keystone Innovation District wi...

Re: On-going downtown development projects

I don't think these maps are particularly up-to-date or complete. Here are a few things I noticed off-hand: seems to be missing Hyatt House, Cambria Hotel, Muehlebach, and Tracks 215. Strata is just called "future office tower" without any details.

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Sherwin Williams has announced they are considering moving their HQ out of Cleveland and are looking at other states (aka nationwide incentive competition). They are looking at a move in 2023. Maybe a tower on this site could be part of a KC bid.

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Here is my guess at a best case scenario (realistically): Copaken is purchasing this because the twisty tower is about to move forward (as well as Strata and perhaps 1034 Main). The building will be demoed and the lot used for construction staging and parking for these developments. When the other p...

Re: Troost developments

Well it looks like the Shoe Warehouse and the Apollo Theater are both slated to be medical marijuana businesses (pending license approval, I assume). The Shoe Warehouse is proposed to be an infused product manufacturer and the the theater is to be a dispensary. Those both seems like rather larger sp...

Re: medical marijuana

Here is a map plotting out all of the Missouri license applications. You can see there are a good number that weren't on my list of those who have applied for city permits. https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1bwxpSI4YMpepHmnCGK0e7F2HS0I80Ucz&ll=39.086605124489836%2C-94.36969234218748&z=11

Re: Troost developments

The last I heard, the general idea was to build on the street edge of Troost and 27th and put the parking in back, with access off of 27th. I think it would have worked without the extra parcel. It's a little frustrating that the redevelopment of both of the south corners got hung up on this other ...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Apparently, it is actually a written rule that the "desirably" orientation is East Northeast. I'm not sure how much that is enforced by MLB. It looks like all outdoor stadiums generally face east, although some face southeast or even south southeast. But facing west or southwest may be out of the qu...

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

A new plan for the office portion has been submitted on Compass. It does look like it has grown. It is now 140k sq feet of office space. Looks like 7 (maybe 8 ) floors of offices instead of the original proposal of 4.

Re: Broadway

The law is written that there are to be a minimum of 24 dispensaries per congressional district. There are 3 districts in the metro, so there could potentially be 72 in the area, but KC south of the river would likely be restricted to 24 (and would probably receive less). The law only dictates the m...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

I just wish the Boulevard Manor Hotel building could be pulled out of the fingers of the Abnos clan, and included in this development. Well it is still for sale. They listed it with a new broker not too long ago for $1.2M. Baseless speculation: maybe the reason for the delay in MAC releasing their ...

Re: Broadway

Well, since the state hasn't granted any licenses yet (AFAIK), it is all speculative. However, the cost of the application with the state is fairly hefty, so I don't think people would be doing that on a speculative whim. I assume the permit application with the city is much cheaper and easier. Coul...

Re: medical marijuana

So, apparently, KCMO has been accepting permit applications for medical marijuana facilities for a little while now. As far as I know, the state hasn't issued any licenses yet, so I guess all of these are preemptive. If you search for marijuana in the description for permits on Compass, you get 136 ...
