I haven't heard anything about that parcel being sold, or Crown Center nabbing a big enough tenant, to put up a new tower.

I would say that if a new hotel is ever built at Crown Center, the two best locations are that parcel at 27th and Main, or as part of that proposed redevelopment of Washington Square Park. Both would have great views.

I thought one of the larger Crown Center parcels just sold? Or was at least on the market with a tower contemplated.

Does anyone have any news on this? Or the Crown Center property?

A deal is probably still trying to be worked out. With Drury next door at the KCPS block, that may change Copaken's plans but I don't know

The Drury absolutely changes their plans if Copaken’s recent video was what they are actually planning.

I'm surprised Copaken allowed anyone else to gain control of the Board of Education block (to use for parking for his 13th and Grand block).

I didn’t know Cordish released a new video since Two Light’s came out. Unless I’m thinking of the video released by Copaken of the fly around.

I think this is the one they're talking about--released in May.
