The parapet detail work on the Firestone building at Linwwod and Troost is getting cleaned up. Anyone know if there is anything behind that (new owner/tenant)?
Could be. There was obviously a cleanup effort happening in that building last week that resulted in an enormous pile of hoarder-grade detritus on the sidewalk. Maybe that Tim Bowman project is happening?

Which was the Tim Bowman project? Was that part of Troost Market Collective?

It looks like the building is still on the market, but maybe it hasn't been updated yet.

It was in the same buildings as the Troost Market Collective, IIRC, but not part of the same development. If that makes any sense.

The Firestone is still on the market, but the development partners have taken ownership.

The Herrons were foreclosed on, so work is being done to the building and their junk is being moved out. This is not owned by Tim Bowman. He owns 3103 Troost (Native American building), 3115 (Shankman) and 3131 (Michelson).

So did Clemons take ownership?

Getting the property out of the Herrons' hands (and having a clean title) sounds like a good thing.

Do you know if more of their properties are being foreclosed?

Clemons is a minority partner with some other money partners. They are managing the development, looking to either sell or lease the properties. The Troost Market Collective is a potential tenant but nothing is signed I believe.

I believe the Herrons are completely off the block. They still have ownership of the small parking lot on the west side, the Belmont and a few vacant parcels nearby though.

Well, the cast concrete details on the Firestone building look a lot better with the staining/discoloration gone, but I don't love the way the brick looks now. More significantly, it looks like the cleaners may have caused some considerable damage:

I saw that too. I’m hoping that they are just tucking and will go back and clean off excess grout, restoring the original color.

Also, the building at Linwood and Gilliam is being worked on. The wood window coverings were removed a few weeks ago. That one could look nice. Anyone have info?

Is it possible the details were taken off to be restored? When the boley building got restored I think they ended up removing almost the entire facade before cleaning reattaching it

It is possible that they were intentionally removed, but they look more broken off to me. You can see the Firestone logo piece still sitting behind there, so if it is going for restoration, it hasn't made it very far.

There were also no signs of any work going on, or even any tools/materials from the workers. That gave me the impression that they might have stopped abruptly and left after an accident, rather than this still being a work in progress.

Hopefully, I'm wrong. Or they are at least able get the costs of the repair covered.

I'm not sure if you are referring to the building on Gillham Rd or Gillham Plaza, because there are buildings being renovated on both of those streets at Linwood. They are discussed in this thread:

Perhaps, they are removing Firestone symbol. Would be cool to modify it into a T for Troost.

Gillham Rd, just east of the Jiffy Lube.

That is the Acme Cleaning building. The same Colorado developer who is behind the Wonder Lofts at 30th and Troost is renovating it. I believe it will be all residential (28 units). At one point, they might have been discussing a mixed-use component, but I think that is no longer the case
