Its still a shame this project never came to fruition. They'd be a lot closer connecting to Vine if it had.

Presumably that building is still for sale. It's occupied by the owner right now, as it was during the Foutch proposal.

The KCTA site near 18th/Vine is intriguing. Lot's of young musicians frequent MMF.

18th and Vine, and Independence, are mentioned in a NY Times article on the United States Civil Rights Trail.
