Re: Uptown Shoppes

Core samples were being taken in the back parking lot a week or two ago. IIRC it was New Horizons doing it so I think that means contamination testing.

Re: Troost developments

It was in the same buildings as the Troost Market Collective, IIRC, but not part of the same development. If that makes any sense.

Re: Troost developments

The parapet detail work on the Firestone building at Linwwod and Troost is getting cleaned up. Anyone know if there is anything behind that (new owner/tenant)? Could be. There was obviously a cleanup effort happening in that building last week that resulted in an enormous pile of hoarder-grade detr...

Re: Troost developments

I don’t think the brick building south of the large white garage-looking building is for sale. But that would be the only lot on that block of Troost.

The building and lot next to the SE corner of Armour and Troost are for sale for $1.3m. Welcome to the land rush.

Re: Beacon Hill

It's been a frustrating time to be an architecture snob. Seems like every project that gets announced has zero imagination put into it. Nothing to even say about it. Imagination, sure. But client vision and budget to program area - especially in a white-hot construction market - are also significan...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

My guess would be that she lobbied other PZ&E members to not vote for it until the project was forced to go through other hoops. Like a side trip to the BZA. But that's only a guess.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

The MAC development is being held up by Shields. I'm reasonably sure it's over parking and the concerns of one Central Hyde Park resident. If you like this project and live within the HPNA boundaries, you might want to vote for regime change at this fall's elections.

Re: Hospital Hill activity

According to local legend, those houses had been relocated to Hospital Hill to make room for the construction of Union Station.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

The FMV established during the eminent domain process for the MAC buildings placed the value of this building at maybe 1/5th of that.

Gillham had a de facto road diet for a year or two while those buildings were being built and everything worked out.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Did anyone walk or spend time on Oak outside of a car, maybe talk to any of the business owners or residents? If the road diet was doing something you would think that the change would be even a little bit perceptible to drivers. That’s certainly true of other road diets I’ve driven on. Sorry if yo...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Westport High School would be a terrible location. I thought the whole idea was to get the Conservatory downtown near the epicenter of the Arts community? And Westport High has the lowest visibility of any location [other than 63rd.]. Great that the school district sold Westport High to a group who...
