Downtown Kansas City Good Life Tour: Pickwick Plaza Comeback Tour



Because gawking at local real estate is a time honored tradition.

For the morning we offer a glimpse at a rehabbed local property now hoping to attract a younger crowd of denizens inside the loop.

Credit where it's due, the views look lovely and if wasn't for all the nearby hobos who have a tendency to get REALLY violent . . . It's nearly perfect.

Description:

"A day capturing the incredible outcome of the restoration and remodel of Pickwick Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri. This incredible historic structure was transformed into a jewel of a modern apartment building, with fantastic amenities and public spaces."

Take a look:



You decide . . .

It's a Section Ape paradise! That place will be trashed in no time once the blacks start moving in.

The Pickwick Hotel, and its garage, are filled with history. WHB radio, once at 710 on the AM dial, had its studios in the hotel for decades. From the 40s through the 70s, it was the station Kansas City listened to. The garage was for decades the terminal for Greyhound Bus, back in a time when hundreds of buses would come in and out of there each day. I'm glad to see it reconstructed and put to good use.

These old buildings have so much beauty and character. Kudos for not tearing it down. Looks like a beautiful renovation.
