I saw that on the news this morning, terrible. The reporter did say that KCFD was impressed that nothing was collapsing in on them and credited with the construction methods of the building. Hopefully it can be saved.

A devastating loss in the fabric of historic kansas city. This home was designed by John Wellborn Root, who also designed the original Board of Trade, also lost to history.

Is there a name for this home or any more history one might be able to dig up?!? It has always been one of my favorite homes in the city.

Yes. And this home was one of the few on Gladstone that was finally returning to it's former glory, with untold amounts of money poured into it and the accompanying carriage house and landscaping.

Amazing that the urban fabric in Northeast just continues to deteriorate, even in the case of a rare successful large restoration such as this. So sad.

Just in the 7 years I've lived in the Historic Northeast, we have lost the Thacher School building to demolition; the Benton Theater to collapse; Gladstone Hall (Gladstone Theater) to fire; the retail and apartment building west of Snyder's Supermarket to fire; and the Vista Theater building directly across the street -- also to fire.

This is terrible! :shock:

They have done such a beautiful job with this place. Had anyone seen the new garage with stained glass window they recently completed??

I really hope they can rebuild and make it look almost as great as it did.


I haven't seen whether the Scarritt home can be rebuilt or if it is a total loss, but I was so sad when I saw the terrible news.

I love the Northeast area of Kansas City and am so glad I took a picture of this beautiful home in February 2008.

Went by the house today. Dumpster and yard full of burned things.

so sad

The missing pieces of stone were carefully laid out in the yard next to the house. Makes me think they are at least thinking about restoring the facade

This development is part of the Paseo Gateway project.

Pendleton ArtsBlock housing development paints picture of Avenue’s future

Image

On Friday, October 28, the Historic Preservation Commission granted a Certificate of Appropriateness to demolish the vacant gas station at 2300 Independence Blvd. and make way for construction of the Pendleton ArtsBlock project, a four-story, mixed-used housing development.

...

The housing project will include commercial uses on the first floor, facing south along Independence Avenue. Residential units will encompass the remaining three floors. In terms of outward appearance, the exterior is expected to consist of brown brick accented with lighter brick. The first-floor store fronts are expected to be made of primarily aluminum (including in the windows and doors), with concrete forming the base. According to a staff report presented to the Historic Preservation Commission, the development will be visible from Independence Blvd., as well as Park Avenue and Olive Street.

Housing Authority of KC making progress on Paseo Gateway Project

...

The ambitious plan to revitalize the Paseo Gateway area and increase the flow of traffic between the Historic Northeast and downtown Kansas City depends upon the razing of the Chouteau Courts housing project at 1220 Independence Avenue. Roughly 120 units of the housing project are currently occupied, and each of the tenants will need to be relocated before the razing and subsequent re-use can proceed. In total, the Housing Authority has made plans to relocate more than 100 tenants to five mostly mixed-income facilities throughout the city. Rose Hill Townhomes will be expected to house 33 low-income units; Pendleton Flats will host 10 low-income units; Century Apartments and Townhomes would welcome 28 low-income units; and Pendleton ArtsBlock would house 14. Some 25 low-income units have yet to be announced.

The Rose Hill Townhomes development at Admiral and Troost is the closest to being move-in ready, with a completion date in early November. Nineteen applications have already been approved for qualified Chouteau Courts residents.

“Initially, we will have about 23 families moving there,” said John Monroe, Director of Planning and Development for the Paseo Gateway Project. “Long range, that will be permanent housing for formerly homeless families.”

From there, the renovated Pendleton Flats development off of Independence Avenue and Brooklyn is expected to break ground on October 30. Meanwhile, preliminary financing commitments have been obtained for Century Apartments and Townhomes (9th and Flora, 9th and Woodland respectively) and Pendleton ArtsBlock (Independence Ave. and Park), which is expected to become an incubator for local artists.

Well, I'm glad the Rose Hill Townhomes didn't set a precedent for awful design and retaining walls. All of those renderings look pretty good.

Thats them. The school says they are in deplorable physical condition. It would be a shame to lose these classic colonnades, ones in a full courtyard arrangement are rare. Wouldn't they make great student housing?

Maybe us raggers should seize the populist fervor if our times and start making petitions to protect these buildings.
