It depends on what the additional funds will be spent on. More research facilities would likely improve UMKC's standing.

Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

One of the North Loop lots that DST owned was sold recently with an adjoining building at 7th and Central.

I expect that the parking lot just north of the 21c/Savoy Hotel will be sold soon. It's also owned by DST and they are liquidating their real estate parcels.
