The owner of the land, 3D Development, will give the land to Greystar Development in exchange for 150 parking spaces for 2101 Broadway, presumably opening up space for a...

Re: Companies moving downtown

On Compass KC today there is a tenant finish permit application for 3.5 floors at 805 Pennsylvania. It's fair to assume this is related to the USDA's move here.

Re: OFFICIAL - Waddell & Reed - 14th & Baltimore

Updated development plan with multiple ground floor renderings located on Compass KC.

No changes thus far to street level. As the renderings will show though, it is not just a long blank wall - it's a really nice, long blank wall.

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

I'm not surprised occupancy is remaining strong - not that many units downtown have been added recently. I think the only downtown apartment project to complete in 2019 was The Gallerie and its 425 units. 2020 is going to have a lot more come online though: RMW II, 116 units City Club Apartments, 28...

There were two permits today for projecting signs at this location for a 'DG X' store. One of the permits is for a 4ft double-sided blade sign, and the other is for a 13' wall sign.

Would be odd if not able to see out from inside so maybe a weak translucence or tint. Will ask Collison to check into it.
In the original plans released on 12/9/2019 these areas are marked as "Metal Wall Panel".

Re: 1532 Grand

Was reviewing the permitting on this project and noticed that the City Plan Commission, recommended adding a cornice to the top of this building. No idea whether they'll do it, and no updated renderings were available.

CPC Staff Report is available at this location.

I think this is for the build out of the Spark co-working space in Two Light. I'm not 100% on this, but I don't think it has ever opened.
