The redevelopment plan for three buildings the east side of the 3100 block of Troost is on the PIEA agenda for today. Here is the proposal:

Some interesting bits:
With redevelopment of Shankman, Michelson, and Tycor buildings serving as a catalyst, the development
team’s long-term goal is to develop ancillary parcels for which we have site control on Forest Street and
Linwood Blvd., to occur three phases. While our request for tax abatement made to Kansas City’s
Planned Industrial Expansion Authority relates only to the first phase rehabilitation of the Shankman,
Michelson, and Tycor buildings, we envision these properties as part of the leading edge for further
redevelopment that we believe will ultimately create $60 million in new construction, the home of many
businesses, and the creation of hundreds of part-time and full-time jobs
They also own 911 Linwood and the SW corner of Linwood and Forrest (I would guess they would want the SE corner of Linwood and Troost, currently owned by PIEA to go along with that, although UC-B was trying to get that parcel in the past).
The property consists of 41,000 square feet, in a 3-story building with a basement. It will be redeveloped
into commercial office, restaurant and entertainment spaces:
• AltCap has committed to lease space in the building
• House to Home, a home design showroom and sales center has also committed to lease space
• Commercial office space
• Sports bar & casual dining
• Speakeasy, upscale dining
• Retail shops
The property consists of 14,500 square feet, in a 2-story building with a basement. It will be redeveloped
for the following uses:
• First floor storefront spaces for retail/office activities
• Second floor office space
The property consists of 22,000 square feet, and as noted above, has the Tycor Building has been
identified as the future home of the Midwest American Indian Museum (MAIM) of the Plains and
Woodland Tribes. Work on this project is being conducted by the Missouri Humanities and Arts Council.
The museum is seen as key anchor to preserve and share heritage of the indigenous tribes that were the
original inhabitants of the area.
Five individual first floor storefront retail spaces will allow various Native American tribes to sell
authentic goods and works from tribal artisans. The storefronts would take advantage of a covered
walkway/pass-through connecting the project’s off-street parking to the sidewalks on Troost to provide a
unique shopping experience.
Outdoor Restaurant and Event Venue
8,100 square feet of outdoor space is located behind and connected to the Shankman and Michelson
buildings. Use of this space is planned for the Barefoot Grill and Wine Bar, a casual dining and
Midtown Redevelopment Partners plans to commence construction of the Shankman, Michaelson, and
Tycor properties, along with the associated parking area and outdoor patio/entertainment area in summer
2019 and anticipates completion of construction by fall 2020.
While the above summary doesn't mention it at all, the plans show some residential in the Shankman building. Looks like 25 units.
