Re: Scarritt Building

The PIEA has an item on their docket mentioning a Qualification Analysis (a report that concludes if incentives are warranted) on 818 Grand - which is the Scarritt Building.

Re: Companies moving downtown

Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

There is an item on the Neighborhood Planning & Development committee docket for rezoning a large swath of the West Bottoms around the West Bottoms Flats development to DX-10, which the supporting documents say is similar to the how parts of the Crossroads are zoned. This zoning change would also ma...

Re: Wonderful Waldo

Powerpoint located here has a rough rendering of this project.

It is a marked improvement on what was proposed initially.
  • $7.6 Million 4-story building
  • Ground floor commercial or office
  • 33 apartments on upper 3 floors

Re: 1532 Grand

Have we seen this done in the recent past? I know this used to be common with buildings but I can't remember a substantial addition of levels to a building since I've been paying attention. The most recent example I can think of are the 2 stories added to the top of 1721 Walnut - The Terrace on Wal...

1532 Grand

The building that houses the Belfry on Grand (1532 Grand) has a project plan on Compass adding 4 stories of residential to the top of the building. This project will add a total of 20 residential units. Looks nice too. An attachment is available on the permit that shows renderings. Permit on Compass...

Re: 20th and Walnut - Oddo Development

6 floors by 1/2 block should give us a whole lot more than just 100-130 units. I would guess closer to 250-400. City Club peaks at 6 floors with many lower sections plus and internal parking garage that takes up a significance amount of space. I agree - but the building doesn't span the whole block...

Re: 20th and Walnut - Oddo Development

Based on the number of floors and area of this development, I'd estimate this project has about 100-130 units.

Here's a link to a bigger version of the photo below.

From the looks of it on Google Streetview, it would replace the Farm To Market building and front the east side of the City Club Apartments project.

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

The southern portion of the garage is in a different style, vaguely postmodern, so I doubt it's original and certainly wouldn't be part of a NHR listing. This part could easily be demolished for a new building with retail while still complimenting the older building. Yeah, the southern part of the ...

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Before you start - this post assumes that the building could only be saved as is, because of the use of historical tax credits. I don't have any love for this building and won't lose any sleep if this building is torn down. Obviously I'd take this building over a surface parking lot any day of the w...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I view a downtown ballpark as a once in a lifetime opportunity, and one that our city needs to capitalize on. I understand some of the skepticism, but this is an opportunity to bring 21,000 people downtown 81 times a year(this is avg per game attendance since 2000), and show our city off on televisi...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Any location north or east of the CBD will not have downtown views. Pretty sure the stadium has to basically face northeast (when standing at home plate, facing the outfield) I looked at a bunch of newer ballparks on Google Maps... while NE-facing was most prevalent, there were stadiums that pointe...

I know I've said this before but I am so bullish on downtown KC and this is my favorite project, hands down. CityClub will add 100s of new residents, ground floor retail, and it will help connect the developing parts of Xroads to the CBD, Crown Center, and beyond. You're talking about 1,000+ new re...
