I am so happy this development got done. I was very worried this building would be demolished.

+100%

I passed by this building every day for years and it's so satisfying to see this.

Kevin Collison reports that "Canary bistro has opened its new rooftop cocktail bar atop the historic Netherlands Hotel building near 39th and Main. "

The former Jewel Box space on Troost is still there, just waiting for someone to buy the building and revive it. :lol:

Decided to rent out one of the units for a weekend trip to KC at the end of May. I'll post a review here when done. Hoping it's nice.

In the meantime, if anyone has recommendations where I can take my drone up, send them my way via Private Message. I'll do my best to fulfill requests in the Downtown area since I was prevented from doing so in December.

What was the strip club just north of the Monarch? Thought that was the Jewel Box.

After it left Troost it went to the 3100 block of Main on the west side.

Thanks. I could have sworn there was a lounge just north of the Monarch. Little one story building. Guess my memory's not so good.
