I’ve heard ‘environmental issues’ before from developers. It usually translates to ‘financing’.DaveKCMO wrote: Pretty sure both of their projects were delayed by environmental issues, last time I spoke to them.
I think that was the case for Crossroads, since the previous use was commercial dry cleaning. A very large chemical bloom under there.chaglang wrote:Unless they had to put testing wells in and are waiting for the state to ok the results? MO DNR is glacially slow.
Anyone attend the survey results meeting hosted by Historic KC last night? Unfortunately, I had a work commitment, but hoping someone from the forum went. Results of the survey are available online https://www.historickansascity.org/wp-c ... d-size.pdf

Speaking of places shutting down, what happened to Snow and Co (I really hated that name)? They went from having a Crossroads location to a 2nd location in Gladstone, then closing Gladstone, then moving to Westport and closing that in a little over a year. I'll admit I didn't really like most of the frozen drinks they made but that business crashed and burned pretty fast. When we went to the Westport one they only had like 2 frozen drink machines, so maybe they were trying to pivot but it was pretty dead on a saturday night.
