Kansas City Unlikely: Fixing The Katz Building
There's been a lot of buzz about the possibility of a Katz Building reuse that would be kind of cool . . . Sadly, it's never gonna happen for a lot of reasons but mostly because Kansas City is more comfortable increasing taxes than giving to multi-denominational churches.
In fact, this story kinda follows a local theme in that locals with happy thoughts easily get press coverage despite the efficacy of their grand plans.
So, please don't hold your breath for the new Katz Marketplace pushed by a local church . . . Even though it's a really nice idea.
