If there's a slow news cycle, why not just repackage what's already available?

they were awaiting the alley vacation before starting serious work. now that it's a done deal, i'd expect to see activity soon. pretty sure they have their financing lined up.

Can we convince Ça Va to move across from their big brother?

I've been following the permits on KIVA for this property and everything went quiet in the middle of August. A lot of their permits were getting denied on their building plan review and most of the issues seemed contingent on an alley being vacated. Hopefully they just have to have N/S alley in the middle of the block vacated for things to continue. You'd think with the city getting so good at vacating streets that this would be a breeze.

They received a vacation of that alley on 8/24 it looks like. Hopefully that means they are able to break ground soon.

Exactly, it seems that they have cleared all the hurdles (incentives, alley vacation, etc). Not sure why they are waiting. I worry about the former hotel building. Two weekends ago there was another small fire just inside the front doors that was started by a squatter in the building. The fire-starter actually put out the small blaze himself, and then KCPD finally broke a window and got the person out of the building. I think the squatter wanted out but wasn't able to figure out how. No telling how many people are living in that thing. I've witnessed a person enter the building thru a window on the third floor (accessed from the roof of the neighboring building).

I'm very excited for this project. Big, dense project right in an area that is an eyesore. Plus, it begins the march eastward to connect to the vibrancy in east Xroads.
