Historic: Kansas City Kemper Clan Might Not Get To Dictate Development Plans!!!



For once, a good sign about the history of this town serving to benefit the current era . . .

KC Biz Journal: Historic registration for Kemper Arena wins state approval

This is a win against the pricey plan from the Kempers that would make Kansas City cough up millions and attempt another eco-devo plan after the old school effort to build the area clearly didn't work.

Developing . . .

All this is is an attempt to once again get the taxpayers to pick up some of the tab for someone's dreams. If he can get the historic designation, he can apply for tax credits to help fund his plan.
Kemper was built in the 1960s.
Historic?
Really?
And the article says that he can even end up tearing it down.

Kemper is an AWFUL, UGLY place that needs to be torn down and replaced with just what the American Royal folks have in mind.

kemper was not built in the 60s. probably closer to 1973-74. I worked down on Kansas Ave. at that time and was frequently in the west bottoms or driving past on 23rd st.. I watched it built.

If Kemper was built in the 1970s, it's EVEN LESS of an historic building.
Maybe the airport terminal can qualify for historic tax credits too!

And KC can say good bye to the American Royal.

As the article says, historic designation doesn't prevent the owner (KC City) from tearing it down. The American Royal has a lease that obligates the City to provide a facility until 2045. This designation is essentially meaningless. The City can still proceed with the plan for a smaller less-expensive facility that will have more events and bring additional money to the area.

Gee! I remember when the public was told that refurbishing Kemper was just not possible. Of course that was shortly before the vote to build Sprint Center. Fucking crooks!!!!
