RMA and FSA have their office at 63rd and 435 near Swope Park.

There’s TONS of empty land in that development to put a second building up and it has the benefit for them that they could use the same security team for both sites.

That could be a good site. I would think something downtown would be a better sell to people moving from D.C. though.

This would be a nice get and it would be great if Kansas and Missouri could work on this together. Most of these positions are PHD level type jobs.
Wonder if USDA lobbying companies would set up offices in the new location as well.

What about the former Gateway Computers building down in the West Bottoms? It was built over the state line with about half the building on each side.

There are other locations where a building could be constructed half-and-half on the state line as well. There is a parcel in Cambridge Business Park off I-35; another along Southwest Boulevard, and even in South Kansas City at the Bi-State Business Park at 141st Terrace near State Line Road.

This way tax revenues could be split among the states/counties/cities.
