Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

The old Muehlebach is in bad shape and they are doing more affordable apartments there while the KC Club building is in much better shape. I think it just comes down to numbers. This is a pretty cool project. I wonder if the four floors of office will be on top of a garage or if the four floors inc...

This is the building on the SW corner of 9th & grand and the smaller building next door. Original facades are not covered up apart from the ground floor storefront of 910 grand

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

Wasn't sure where to post this, but UMB is consolidating their campus and listing 906 and 910 Grand buildings for sale.
910 is primarily used for storage right now.
Both are under-utilized, gorgeous historic buildings which would be great residential/hotel/office.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Wonderful, you have thoroughly investigated the use case scenario for a Filling Station employee or immediate neighbor. Now what about residents near 26th and Charlotte? 27th looks much more attractive than 31st or Linwood. What about the MAJOR draw of Liberty Memorial, WWI museum, and the surroundi...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

27th would be great for Liberty Memorial/WWI Museum and Longfellow. Not to mention all of the under-construction, proposed, and potential development along 27th street which could fill out and completely change that area from what it is today. I'd take 31st over Linwood since Linwood feels more like...

Re: What other cities are doing about affordable housing

serious question, why not housing vouchers for lower income housing instead of subsidies to the developers? we don't charge less for groceries for individuals with low to no income. it is subsidized by food stamps or snap if you apply and qualify. this allows qualifying individuals or families to li...

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

Not that much better. I hear you, but as a downtown worker I feel like I can still pretty easily live a carless life at 27th/McGee. Currently a little more difficult at 27th/Campbell though that is definitely changing fast. Imagine if the city made 27th attractive through that corridor instead of a...

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

They seem to be nicer than the 27th & Campbell ones but maybe not as high-end as the ones they build near 63rd & Oak (which are $500k or more)

2 BRs are 1474 sf (plus 2 car garage)
3 BRs are 1621 and 1633 sf (plus 2 car garage)
So around $250 per finished sq foot

H&R Tower Two.


I thought that site was considered "Five" Light and "Six" was an undisclosed location.
So, no office component, then?

These are unofficial numbers, but when speaking with the developers I believe they told me around $360-370k for 2 BR and $410-420K for 3 BR

Yes. It would be built on the rest of that block.


Oh, I thought the rest of that block (to the South) was under control/ownership of the people renovating the old KC star headquarters. Maybe there is room behind this church on McGee for a phase 2?
