Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

If they are doing some demo/construction, I wouldn't mind seeing the portion of the garage that fronts 47th St being removed and replaced with retail or mixed-use. The Bank of America drive through also seems like a good candidate to be removed.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

This article in the Star says Two Light is already fully leased. I find that a little hard to believe. Any input, Stranger Things?

Re: The Future of Crown Center

There is a request for alley vacation at 2720 Walnut that just showed up in the KCMO Development Tracker map. Walnut doesn't currently exist at that location (address may be a remanent of the past). There is no document or details available to see who applied for the vacation or what project this wo...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Not enough typos or references to regional chains selling the exact same things one can readily buy here, but pretty good - that scores an 8.2/10 in my book. :-) Gordmans closed. No Shopko or Bloomingdales in area yet same with like Meijer,Yonkers,Boston Store,Johnny Mac's,Sportsmen Wearhouse or so...

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

Here is the relevant quote from the BizJournal article: Normally, Block Real Estate Services does not begin construction on new office projects until at least 40 to 50 percent of the space has been leased. But Block said the financing package it has been able to put together will allow construction ...

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

Yes. I fear the "groundbreaking" ceremony might have been more so an advertisement to attract tenants. Perhaps they are waiting until more space is leased to actually start construction.

Re: Urbanism and Pros and Cons of Gentrification

Well, it could still fail to go through, as can happen with short sales. I don't know anything about what stage they are in of the process (sounds like you might have more info than me). Sometimes short sales just take a very long time.

Re: Urbanism and Pros and Cons of Gentrification

The houses on Cherry and Gillham are both under contract. As mentioned, Cherry is a short sale, hence the length of time "on the market". Both of the houses need extensive work. I think the prices on both of them are appropriate for the amount of work they need (Gillham may end up selling ...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Tennis players per day: A few dozen and less during winter? Potential streetcar daily riders going by Plaza: Likely 5K+, maybe 10K+ peaks (it will likely be one of busiest stops along entire line) That location is too prime for a few select people using it. It needs to function as a transit center ...

Re: Troost developments

27th and Troost is on the agenda for the LCRA meeting on Jan 24th. The contract for Milhaus/UC-B is to be extended until Feb 16th (was supposed to close 1/16). The delay is because the city had to approve alley vacation, and it looks like that was completed this week. The more interesting tidbit is ...

IIRC, the condo aspect of that project was scrapped and they will all be rentals.

Re: Three Light

The article still says 300 units for Three Light, which is basically the same as Two Light. The footprint looks about the same, so unless these units are significantly larger, or there is another mixed-use component, I wouldn't expect anything drastically larger. If they are planning on going condo,...

Re: 46 Summit

This went to the Planning, Zoning & Economic Development Committee last week. The project is getting a bit larger - same number of units but increased bedroom count and an added floor on Summit. Those elevations already show 4 floors on Summit, so I guess it is just getting approval for that. Fr...

Re: Longfellow development

Yeah, it would be sad to loose. I know there are a ton of similar six-plexes in KC, but this one has a few unique touches that make it special. I didn't notice the name on it before. It's interesting because there is a nearby apartment building on Harrison off 31st that was called The Narcissist. I ...
