In one of the articles, I found a link to a mockup of what the redevelopment might look like.

It looks like the City is stabilizing these buildings for redevelopment despite the fire damage.

I noticed on Monday that there was scaffolding on the vacant former Water Department building on Vine Street, and also workers going in and out of the structure. Does anyone know what is going on?

I thought it was owned by the same guy who owned the work house.

It doesn't appear to be the same owners as the KC Workhouse building.


2000 Vine Street LLC is headed by Timothy Duggan, who is also an owner of Phronesis Design.

It appears that the buildings are going to be restored as offices for three small professional firms: Phronesis Design, an architecture firm; Parsons & Associates, a public relations firm; and Benton, Lloyd & Chung, a law firm.

I saw workers taking stuff out of the Boone Theater on the SE corner of 18th and Highland. Perhaps they are preparing for work to start on renovation. In addition, the fake storefronts to the east of the theater building have been removed. I don't know when that happened.

The Crossroads Academy hopefully has found a new permanent home for its downtown high school, the long-vacant, historic Attucks School in the 18th & Vine Jazz District.

The charter school has submitted a bid to the city to buy the old building at 1815 Woodland Ave. If accepted, it could ultimately house 500 high school students attending the expanding Crossroads Academy program.

The Crossroads Academy will not open a new high school in the former Attucks School building. It will be redeveloped into an arts hub.

Transit Agency Pursuing Development in Big Way, Offering Strategic Block on 18th Street Near Crossroads, 18th & Vine

An entire city block along the strategic 18th Street corridor between the Crossroads and 18th & Vine Jazz District will be offered soon for development by the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority.

The block on the north side of 18th between Troost and Forest is currently a greenfield and is expected to be pitched by the authority as a potential residential project with lower-level commercial space.

This block may one day help form a vital connection between Crossroads and 18th and Vine, but I think that a lot more development in Crossroads will have to happen before this land looks attractive to developers. There are too many development opportunities in Crossroads. On the other hand, this is a greenfield site with an owner looking to sell, unlike a lot of surface lots downtown.

I estimate it will be 5+ years before we even hear anything else about this site.

It seems something like the gallerie that they are doing at 27th and mcgee would be perfect here. The crossroads and 18th and vine are super close together, they just feel far apart.
