I guess Oak Tower is updated and in use. (Unfortunately, it stands pretty dark - inside and out - in the night skyline.)
The Grand Avenue Temple Office Building (SE corner of 9th and Grand) -- 12 stories. I think it's mostly empty.
906 Grand (SW corner of 9th and Grand) owned by UMB and called Partnership Place; historically has been known as the Rialto Building, and Ozark National Bank Building) -- 13 stories. Isn't it still mostly empty?
The Scarritt Building (NW corner of 9th and Grand) -- 12 stories. Owned by Wayne Reeder, who announced intent to renovate it for offices. I'm not hopeful it will happen.
Insurance Building (NW corner of 10th and Oak) -- 6 stories. Abnos owned. Renovation never finished.
Old Muehleback Hotel Building (SW corner of 12th and Baltimore). The old hotel rooms are not being used, and there has been no plan to do anything with them.
Board of Education Building (12th between McGee and Oak) -- 11 stories. The Board is planning to sell the building.
Midland Theater Office Building (NE corner of 13th and Baltimore)-- 12 stories. Part of the Power & Light District. The building has been empty for several years. Cordish has yet to begin renovation, and there doesn't appear to be any movement to do so.
Scientology Center / City National Bank Building (SE corner of 18th and Grand) -- 7 stories. Bought in 2007 I think. The building is empty, and nothing has happened with it.
Firestone (Abdiana) Building (SE corner of 20th and Grand) -- 8 stories. Abnos owned. Building mostly empty. Is the first floor still being used?
