Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Here is an interesting new submission on Compass - a request for a Prelimnary Project Code Review Meeting for a shipping container building at 511 Deleware: https://compasskc.kcmo.org/EnerGov_Prod/SelfService#/plan/e2889cae-bd8a-45d1-8c75-dd5b34cdbbd2 511 Deleware is an original brick 3-story buildi...

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

Here is a building that I believe is new to the market - the Laramie Tires Building at 1201 Union. Looks like it could have good potential. 120,000 sq ft: https://i.imgur.com/M2wyjAp.jpg https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/1201-Union-Ave-Kansas-City-MO/16944306/ This building still appears to be on the...

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Well, this is disappointing. Seems like a downgrade from the previous proposal. I would much rather keep the original building. I know it is not a truly historically significant building, but when we have already demolished so much, we are losing any sense of place. Also, would prefer to have the re...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

3521 Baltimore (just south of Armour Blvd) is up for sale. 59 Units for $4M. This is one of the last big apartments along the Armour corridor that could really use a renovation and new ownership - and probably one of the last in all of Midtown, aside from the Alcazar and Santa Maria on 39th St. Hope...

Re: Troost developments

It looks like MCCKC has purchased the former Nazarene Publishing House on the 2900 Block of Troost. They have applied for a change of occupancy on Compass with construction permits valued at $13M. I don't see exactly what they plan on doing there. Maybe moving their office/headquarters to free up sp...

Re: OFFICIAL - The Gallerie (27th & Gillham)

In less than 2 months they doubled their vacancy? Was it the 1 year anniversary of opening or something? Thats not good news. I'm not sure what these numbers include, but isn't it possible that new apartments were added, maybe the the last phase - Icon at Gallerie - which looks like it is wrapping up

There is new construction fencing up around the Firestone Building (31st and Troost) as well as the building just to the east. It looked like the Firestone Building was being worked on, and I think the newer and smaller building to the east may be getting demolished. As far as I know, the property s...

There is a new application on Compass for rezoning 506 E 31st Street (Velvet Freeze) to Urban Redevelopment. There are no real details or plans on Compass. The only hint might be that Clockwork Architecture is involved. https://compasskc.kcmo.org/EnerGov_Prod/SelfService#/plan/362c7537-fe2e-497d-bec...

Re: West Plaza Flats

Is this the previous thread? https://kcrag.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=20486&start=20 No, that thread is about demo to the NE of 44th and Belleview, this project is to the SW of that intersection. It was originally called Midtown Crossing, then 44 Belle, and I guess they settled on West Plaza Flats.
