Yes, there was a topping out ceremony on Friday morning.
Sorry to burst the excitement. 240 N Grand is actually next to Ritter Hall. The new building will be roughly where the Dolphin pond is just east of Ritter Hall, north of the other science buildings, and northeast of the BSC. Makes sense for this building. The good news is this will add some density ...
Something afoot at the long boarded-up building at 5882 Cabanne near Hamilton. LRA Building 07/20/2018 36 UNITS $2,000,000.00 INTERIOR & EXERIOR ALTEATIONS PER PLANS They're still a ways off from closing on the financing, but they wanted to get the reviews started now. The plans look good. This is ...
I don't understand why Messenger is so defensive of McKee. That whole column sounded like a PR piece for McKee. This potential developer doesn't need anything from the City, and the legal issues between McKee and the City have no bearing on whether this guy can proceed or not. I'm more skeptical of ...
They won't get historic tax credits on the new construction. That is an ineligible expense. However, in approving the demolition of contributing portions and the new construction on the overall project anywhere that falls within what is included in the nomination they get to have a say. What NPS and...
I'd be all for something like this on this site, but this seems purely conceptual. Almost anything would be better than what is currently there, and coupled with the Choice Neighborhoods project it would really transform that stretch of N 14th which is also a potential Metrolink corridor someday, ma...
Let's not worry about KCRag. They can do them, we can do us.

That's quicker than I expected, but I'll never complain about a crane going up.
The top climbing unit on the tower and more tower sections on the trailer suggests that the crane will go taller.
As said above, it makes plenty of sense. It's not uncommon for a crane to be in the middle of a structure, it's pretty well centered to the site, and picking up materials from the staging area to the east keeps the hook closer to the tower for more capacity vs if it went up the Kingshighway side and...
The steel for the roof on the grocery building has been going up and the gas station is framed up. Workers are there everyday, but not the quickest pace I have ever seen. This little massively subsidized project is unaffected by the default declaration because it is under different ownership and alr...
Northside Regeneration, LLC still owns all the properties that they have acquired since 2003. That won't change until someone doesn't pay the taxes long enough, or the lender allows a sale or forecloses. They could also fix all of the stated problems in the notice of default within 30 days and get b...
Too little, too late, but still welcome news. Doesn't get McKee off any of his properties immediately, but I wonder if this starts the ball rolling for Bank of Washington to foreclose on everything. Doesn't mean they will sell it for a reasonable price either. It's all a big mess that could have bee...
^A percentage of sales as part of the lease terms is not uncommon for retail and restaurants.
^McKee started buying in 2003.

He is an objective failure in so many ways. I don't know why Clay is doing his bidding for him now, but he is completely out of touch with his constituents. I wonder when the last time he drove through North City and looked around was?
But why was the permit denied in the first place? How does this affect the development? It was denied because the plans don't comply with the letter of the zoning law in some way. It's not uncommon. The Board of Adjustment exists so that anyone that feels like they have been unnecessarily prevented...
This is on the Board of Adjustment Agenda for June 20th . APPEAL #11122 -– Appeal filed by HDA Architects from the determination of the Building Commissioner in the denial of a building permit authorizing the Appellant to construct 32 story apartment building, (zoning only) per plans, zoning only at...
^I wonder if the GenCorp is only doing a portion of the work on the Municipal Courts. Maybe only the full on interior demo. There has been a different environmental company in there for a couple months now ding something.
Erection of the 2nd tower crane is underway today.
^^ Lattice boom crawler crane most likely to set pre-cast.
That's the best news I have heard in a long time! Though it makes me just a bit sad that I won't get to renovate it myself. Not that it would have stayed standing long enough for me to find that kind of money.
While amusing, I wouldn't call it a snafu. From my understanding, the practice of "sliding" tracks side to side is pretty standard. You can see how close it is to the existing tracks, I'm guessing that that was as close as they could get. Agreed. I suspect they will line it up where it's supposed t...
The new design and site plan is a big upgrade over the original proposal from 2015. This should look nice.
Off and on. Right now it's moving fast, but an hour ago it was a painful wait for pages to load.
