Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

Utility work around the site perimeter was quite intense the past week or so, and now it has slowed somewhat. Meanwhile, a trailer/office has returned and some workers have been clearing vegetation here and there. Based on past remarks, I'd expect work to begin in earnest next week, but that probabl...

Re: South is Growimg

Definitely good to see all the south KCMO activity. I suppose people had to get fed up with development at 200-something-th and Metcalf at some point.

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

City Council meeting was tonight at 7.

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

Oh, and I heard somewhere -- wish I could remember where -- that Neighbors Construction will not be rejoining the project after having to place a lien on the property last fall. Fogel Anderson will build the retail + residential on their own.

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

Some minor forward momentum today (well, yesterday as it's past midnight). City website blurb updated, emphasis mine. No activity at the site that I noticed today. Gateway (Roe and Johnson Drive) - Construction of the apartments over first floor retail was started last fall. In mid-December, Cinergy...

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

At a council or committee meeting I went to, one city official said they are not concerned about weather affecting the concrete or rebar, but they will want engineering to show that the piers have not moved out of position before they can continue.
