Re: East Side Development

It is now a Milhaus development (not sure if UCB still involved). It was just referenced in a BizJournal article about the Milhaus development at 31st and Troost. Starner said the $8 million to $9 million project would be "catalytic," together with a 150-unit apartment development Milhaus is pursuin...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Very impressed and I did not realize just how many were being done. I hope it continues to to happen until that whole area is redone. Bringing back some upscale, market rate residential to the area should be a boom. Really, just about all of the buildings have been renovated and brought to market r...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

This has been posted on LoopNet before, although I do see the date created as 7/5/20, so maybe they just re-listed it. Listing do sometimes appear and disappear off LoopNet in a seemingly arbitrary fashion. Things seemed to be pointing toward this project moving forward. I had assumed that since the...

And a $7.5M 60 unit townhouse development around 38th and Michigan/Woodland. Hopefully, this development could help revive the vacant commercial center around 39th and Woodland.

Re: Real Estate Listings of Interest (Metrowide)

The tax appraisal on that home is over $1.25M, so the taxes are a little over valued. If you were to buy it, you could contest the valuation next time it comes up, if they don't adjust automatically. As for why it hasn't sold, I can't really say. I do think that little stretch of Ward Parkway may be...

Oh, there's a family that's been "renovating" it for the past two and a half years. Very little progress here, and it's been frustrating. Of course, they won't sell... The SE corner shows as owned by someone who lives in California. That probably plays a part. It's a mother and two sons. At least o...

Re: Uptown Shoppes

I think that may be for the hotel proposal on Central north of Westport Rd. I believe it was to be a Marriott TownePlace Suites. Dirt was moved on that site a while back and it seemed like site prep was starting, but it has just been sitting as a mound of earth.

Here is a drone shot for a listing of a home in Hyde Park. It has a pretty nice view of Armour Blvd. You can see the elevator shaft for the 520 E Armour development poking out of the trees.

Re: Midtown Area Apartment Boom

I also would be curious about any more details on that project, if anyone has access. $25-$50M would be a rather large project, particularly for the 64109 zip. I notice that is has the same upload date listed as the Armour and Troost 4 corners listings (June 9). Is it just a coincidence? I wonder if...
