Yeah, they'll develop that just as soon as they can demolish the Lane Building. :(

Meanwhile, the Marriott properties, announced in 2013 by Chartwell Hospitality and built from scratch, will make the first big splash when they open next month. Progress has been unencumbered by taxpayer protests, given that the project sought no tax abatements or other incentives.

“We believed our project would stand alone without incentives,” said Will Schaedle, a Chartwell Hospitality executive. “We underwrote the hotel to self-sustain” — meaning that the Tennessee-based company was confident room occupancy and rates would justify the investment.

Chartwell, like several other out-of-town developers, saw promise in the Kansas City market. Enticed by residential and entertainment growth downtown and in the Crossroads, they have joined local interests, all hoping to take a bite out of a bigger business, convention and tourism pie by offering an array of boutique, small and limited-service hotels.

Those faux brick tiles on floors 2-9 look terrible. Look at the bulge on the corner of the fourth floor...

garage with retail taking shape. no word on the tenant yet, or what material will screen the exterior on the upper floors.

Hopefully that's retail space along Main. Long term, Main St through Xroads should become contiguous row of streetfront retail as much as possible methinks.
