i overheard something was happening here, but don't recall the details. no permit activity for 5051 main, which is the address the parcel viewer provides. the adjacent parcel (5041) is now owned by community america credit union and they have a commercial tenant finish permit from late october. i fear 5051 will indeed be a surface lot.

A surface lot would at least be a sideways move rather than backwards (was an old gas station if I recall), and cleared for later development. With the momentum this stretch is getting, am optimistic that prime location will attract a developer.

I know that Community America has plans for a south Plaza branch near 51st/Main (in addition to a new branch in the Crossroads) - I guess that would be the answer.

CA not exactly a boost for the neighborhood as banks don't tend to include streetfront retail, but this stretch is sort of a mini financial district. The US Bank building upgrade didn't add retail either, missed opportunity. UMB could too with a nice corner patio within the greenspace. Hopefully something better for such a prime location.
