Much of the first floor is blocked off. Escalator is already gone.

I would think that One Kansas City Place will have to follow soon.

Hopefully someone will come in with some modern product and really scare them.

Perhaps that's why the BofA branch is moving across the street? Clearly there's a good reason to improve the existing Class A than throwing a bunch of incentives at new construction. The other late 80s/early 90s towers could also use some repositioning.

Do we know if the old BofA will completely close? The new BOFA will be entirely virtual.

We do not know. Just an assumption based on what other banks are doing downtown (such as Commerce and UMB -- their lobby footprints have all shrunk).

Terribly shortsighted. And, mediocre.
Elaborate?

Anytime you gloat about the removing and stripping away the only thing iconic you've got going... You're probably just screwing yourself over in the end. It is beyond ironic, and slightly moronic to hear them say "Improvements will ...include the removal of the iconic staircase". Tell me that doesn't scream idiocy.

Now you're going to have a nice, modern atrium as before.. with no connectivity to any of the other spaces and floors you see. Forget EVER gaining back ANY 2nd or 3rd floor retail shops and restaurants as the building had in the past. This will kill that idea in a heartbeat.
