Hawthorne Plaza

Postby beautyfromashes » Thu Sep 08, 2011 4:36 pm

I'm one of the first to fight against tearing down a building, but the Hawthorne Plaza is a giant mess. The whole side facade fell down and bricks are falling off the front so they had to put in construction covers. Who's to blame for this?

I think there was a redevelopment plan for upscale apartments and a parking garage put forth by Howard Fischer, CEO of Distinct Properties KC LLC, but I assume they lost their financing after the big real estate crash. There was also some problem with additional TIF being opposed by the Southmoreland neighborhood, and politics involved with that neighborhood association.

The project was reverting back to the original building name: The Netherlands.

With Missouri making cutbacks to historic tax credits, things look bad for this project, if it should come back in another development proposal.

Here is the original thread:
