Re: Flooding on the Missouri

I drove to Lincoln Saturday morning for a wedding and back to KC Sunday afternoon. The water was up to the edge of the road for miles. Pretty sad to see all of that flooding.

Isn't that a Bible verse.
Yes, but I believe the business name is inspired by John Steinbeck's "East of Eden".

Re: wtf is happening to w. 39th?!

Hasn't been mentioned yet, but the Smalter Gallery opened up in 1802 W 39th St. They did a beautiful renovation of the space, which was previously in very rough shape. They even have before and after pictures inside. It adds an interesting mix to the street, I hope they do well. https://smalterart.c...

Re: Troost developments

There are often trans prostitutes on the NE corner of 43rd and Troost. Speaking of that intersection, it's surprising that no one has tried renovating the apartment building on the SE corner. Oh, there's a family that's been "renovating" it for the past two and a half years. Very little progress he...

Re: Real Estate Listings of Interest (Metrowide)

MAC does have the parking garage behind the International building. I believe tenants from any of their buildings can get a spot there. That is not too far from this building. Also, the 3-story brick box apartment building at 36th and Gillham was recently put up for sale. That building could use so...

I'm still holding out hope for Denver Biscuit Co. to open in Westport. Hopefully a local/regional biscuity name entering the same neighborhood doesn't spook them.
I heard Denver Biscuit Co. / Atomic Cowboy is going into the old icehouse at 4140 Pennsylvania Ave

Re: Broadway

Maybe it was earlier in the thread, though I'm too lazy to look... I heard Kashani was suing the previous owner because there was some issue with the building after he bought it. I know that's incredibly vague, and I can't remember where I heard it, but that could be the reason this has been delayed...

This seems rather high end compared to the rest of their portfolio.
I may be wrong, but I think they may have sold off their portfolio and exchanged into this.

Re: Plaza Residential Development

I don't hate this redevelopment, but I don't love it either. Architecturally, these homes are fine. Drawings are a start, but often the builder changes things and fouls up proportions of windows and materials to acquire standard sizes. Let's hope that does not happen. What I don't love is the garag...

Re: Uptown Shoppes

Great American Bank at 39th and Main is supposedly moving into the vacant bank space. They would utilize the drive-thru, which would explain why the building doesn't come out to the Broadway sidewalk. Also, new-build construction is probably $250+/sf. That wouldn't take into account the cost to tear...

Re: Troost developments

Clemons is a minority partner with some other money partners. They are managing the development, looking to either sell or lease the properties. The Troost Market Collective is a potential tenant but nothing is signed I believe. I believe the Herrons are completely off the block. They still have own...

Re: Troost developments

The Firestone is still on the market, but the development partners have taken ownership. The Herrons were foreclosed on, so work is being done to the building and their junk is being moved out. This is not owned by Tim Bowman. He owns 3103 Troost (Native American building), 3115 (Shankman) and 3131 ...

Larry Sells is partnering with Doug Compton and the principal of Treanor Architects, both from Lawrence. I don't think Larry really has much control here. I saw the renderings a few months ago, and they looked pretty good. I'm excited about this. From what I remember, the Shoppes will be 6-7 stories...

I had emailed a Target executive a few times since Christmas without a response, but sent that article when it came out last week. Their regional real estate director gave me a call on Thursday. She said KC is not on the radar in the foreseeable future. They re-evaluate sites quarterly, but at the m...

Re: Troost developments

The couple that currently "owns" the properties on the 3100 block of Troost have hundreds of title liens on them, including state and federal tax liens. They are also crazy hoarders. I'm not sure how they've been able to hold on to them for this long, but it is what it is, I guess. Clemon's Real Est...
