Re: Troost developments

No retail for this project. I believe the Botwin development for SW and SW corners of 27th and Troost is stalled. I think it was supposed to be mixed-use.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Here is an interesting plan for infill at 32nd and McGee (currently vacant lot/community garden). It is for a "cottage community" with 4 "cabins". I wonder if the plan is to use these for Airbnb.

Re: Westport

The north side of Westport Rd between Holly and Wiedenmann (just north of the old Berbiglia that was torn down for the new QT) is rumored to be torn down for apartments. The owner of the salon in one of the houses said they were being forced to move, and when I asked for more details she said they ...

I don't see a lot of info available, but it does say 242 units. The original proposal included 350 units, but it is no surprise that it would ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

According to a Business Journal article on endangered buildings the Christian Scientist church is to be torn down and replaced with a 13 story office tower. Would be a loss for the human scale along 47th and create a blocky wall on the north side. I noticed HKC had applied for historic designation ...

Re: Light Rail Systems And Routes In Other Cities

The roll out of the St Louis Loop Trolley really has been a shit show. After years of delays, they finally had the ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday, but couldn't start service due to snow (I guess that part was just bad luck). Service started today, but only with two cars running a shortened route ...

That name comes off as cheesy, but hopefully the food won't be as Anglicized. It would be good to have a Mexican chicken option a little closer. I'm not sure why some of the KCK/Independence Ave Mexican joints don't look at expanding into more gringo neighborhoods. I think if some place like El Poll...

The townhomes are now being marketed. August 2019 completion date.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

For the most part, those lots are pretty narrow. I think they may have to get variances to even build back a single family home. They would have to be be townhouses to increase the density, and even then, fitting three on two lots might be tough.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I guess it is safe to assume these will all be tear downs since these will be between 44th and 45th. There are a fair number of vacant lots north of 44th that Westport Today owns. I wonder if they have plans for those yet. Those seem better suited for multi-family or mixed-use. With 30 homes being b...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

I assume it will be brick veneer. It seems that is all anyone uses anymore, due to costs.

It seems like that can look hit or miss. When it is done well, it can be hard to tell a difference.
