Redeveloping A Kansas City Coffee Building
Trend spotting and maybe a wake-up call . . . Businesses leave Kansas City and their empty shells become mostly empty condos . . .
An urban development firm, The Alexander Co., has plans for a $30 million redevelopment of the old Folgers Coffee Co. facility and turning it into a 167-unit mixed-income project.
On the bright side . . . Downtown dwellers now have some kind of connection to Kansas City's history.
