Re: Troost developments

That is the Acme Cleaning building. The same Colorado developer who is behind the Wonder Lofts at 30th and Troost is renovating it. I believe it will be all residential (28 units). At one point, they might have been discussing a mixed-use component, but I think that is no longer the case

Re: Troost developments

Also, the building at Linwood and Gilliam is being worked on. The wood window coverings were removed a few weeks ago. That one could look nice. Anyone have info? I'm not sure if you are referring to the building on Gillham Rd or Gillham Plaza, because there are buildings being renovated on both of ...

Re: Troost developments

It is possible that they were intentionally removed, but they look more broken off to me. You can see the Firestone logo piece still sitting behind there, so if it is going for restoration, it hasn't made it very far. There were also no signs of any work going on, or even any tools/materials from th...

Re: Troost developments

Well, the cast concrete details on the Firestone building look a lot better with the staining/discoloration gone, but I don't love the way the brick looks now. More significantly, it looks like the cleaners may have caused some considerable damage: Before: https://preview.ibb.co/d7ywre/firestone_bef...

Re: BMA Building

The garage/site is back on the market, listed at $3.8M.

I wonder if it sold at the auction and whoever bought it is just flipping it.

Re: Troost developments

So did Clemons take ownership?

Getting the property out of the Herrons' hands (and having a clean title) sounds like a good thing.

Do you know if more of their properties are being foreclosed?

Which was the Tim Bowman project? Was that part of Troost Market Collective?

It looks like the building is still on the market, but maybe it hasn't been updated yet.

Something called Dream Muscle Coffee is going into the former Urban Cafe space. I was thinking that "dream muscle" might refer to the brain....

Re: Open Spaces - Kansas City Arts Experience

The Ethnic Fest was pretty packed this year on the day I went. I hadn't been in a few years and I was surprised at the size of the crowd. Any more people and it probably would have been too much. I'm planning on going to Open Spaces on Sunday. On the general topic of festivals, I would love to see S...

Two different business owners in the area have told me there are plans to turn the El Torreon into a nightclub with dining, entertainment and dancing.
Would this mean the church is moving out? Or would it just be in the current event space?

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

I was glad to see that MAC still seems to be moving forward with site prep even if the project is being held up by Shields. I saw the tanks being removed from the gas station site today. It looked like a core sample was being taken on the NE corner and other work was happening on the SW corner.
