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 ...

Re: Uptown Shoppes

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...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

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 Herrons' properties on the west side of the street were foreclosed on by Legacy Crossing Development, LLC. This includes every building except Family Dollar and Journey to New Life. They are in the process of cleaning them out, and have them for sale or lease. They could have new tenants by the ...

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...

Re: Meyer Building (3923 Main)

Sorry, I should add that I don't mean to hype this up at all, but it's not Mac. I haven't seen the actual plans, but from everything I've heard, it will be a solid project. I believe closing is in early October, so there will be public details soon enough.

Same developer. No previous projects like this, just some smaller renovations around midtown.

It's under contract. I think everyone will be happy with who the buyer is, and what they have planned.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

They're referring to 3513 Gillham. It's a developer who owns quite a few apartments in Midtown... It'll be a good renovation!

I don't think this has been discussed yet, but it looks like Vantrust is now the lead developer for the east village. Swope is still on as co-developer, but hopefully this means things are picking up... http://cityscenekc.com/vantrust-assumes-lead-role-on-east-village-acquires-key-properties-in-stal...
