Neighborhood Facebook page reports that moving trucks are arriving for at least one of the buildings.

I don't know if this means they are demolishing the building, or just removing sections of the facade that are not stable with the intent on rebuilding the facade later.

Update photo taken Tuesday, Jan 10. The facade appears to be repaired, and the building salvaged.

So nice to see it saved. We eat at Vietnam Cafe across the street often and was sad to see it nearly come down.

Abatement, land sale keep Columbus Park redevelopment rolling
...

The Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority on Wednesday approved a 10-year, 100 percent property tax abatement for the second phase, which will include a four-story, 60-unit apartment building and two-story mixed-use building containing 6,400 square feet of ground-floor retail and six loft apartments.

In addition, the LCRA agreed to sell Columbus Park Developers the five remaing LCRA-owned parcels in the redevelopment area, which is bounded by Third Street on the north, Fifth Street on the south, Campbell Street on the east and Cherry Street on the west.

Yeah. The couple that owns the building on the North West corner of Missouri & Troost is subdividing the parcel to build 5 row houses. If you're familiar with the area- It will replace that old pool

At least one of them is a lurker and occasional participant here. Going to be a very nice project restoring some of the historic density of Columbus Park. It was very nice of KCMO planning to help this entrepreneurial couple proceed in a time and cost efficient manner. /s

It's good to see someone doing infill development without tearing down existing buildings. That's always a good starting point.

I heard the shed was going. Also let's not forget the pool that was removed! NEVER FORGET THE POOL.

The pool can be replaced! I picture a rooftop pool that spans all three homes. When it leaks into bedrooms it will be advertised as a water feature.

And then we can put it in the airport. 2 birds/1 stone.

I'm concerned about how it could affect neighborhood character.
