Murals are going up on the boarded up buildings. It looks nice, but it is a bit concerning for what it might portend for how long the boards will be up.

Also, it seems like I have been noticing numerous new "For Sale" signs appearing on buildings up and down Troost. Maybe the negligent and absentee landlords maybe be seeing the changes coming and realizing they can get some money for their properties. This is encouraging if the properties actual make it into the hands of people who will do something positive.

The 31st and Troost owners were not foreclosed on. My understanding is that those buildings are related to the Troost Market Collective. There was(/is?) a Native American cultural center there and the plans for these buildings involve developing/expanding the center to help provide more opportunities to Native Americans and connect them with opportunities already out there that they may not have access to (particularly those from the city as opposed to the Rez), as well as providing opportunities to neighborhood artists and entrepreneurs. I think the project has been delayed but I know people are still working on it and trying to ensure that those plans stay in tact. There is some concern that part of that stretch might be demolished for the TMC garage.

In other, tastier news, a chicken biscuit place is coming to 39th & Troost in April.

The Herrons' properties on the west side of the street were foreclosed on by Legacy Crossing Development, LLC. This includes every building except Family Dollar and Journey to New Life. They are in the process of cleaning them out, and have them for sale or lease. They could have new tenants by the spring.

The Troost Market Collective is looking to use many of the spaces on the block. They would be a tenant, not a property owner (at least at this point).

The Native American cultural center is located at 3103-3105 Troost. It is not owned by the Herrons but by a nonprofit called Tycor Community Development Corp. The head of that board recently passed away, so the status of that building is uncertain. If you look at it from a birds' eye view, the back half of that building is a giant shed/shanty town. There has been talk of tearing that part off to create more parking for the block. Maybe building a new garage has been discussed, though I haven't quite heard that. But I'm assuming that is what yeliab is referring to.

Thanks. That sounds more like my understanding of the situation on that block. There is a garage somewhere in the center of that block, but I don't know the size or condition. I believe it's accessed from the Firestone Building on the south end.
