TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY HOSTS EPIC BLIGHT AT ABANDONED HILLSIDE MOTEL!!!



Recently our blog community sent word of a longstanding eyesore that continues to confront Kansas City residents despite promises to remove local blight.

To wit . . .

SPECIAL THANKS TO AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS FOR SENDING PIX OF THE VERY WORST OF KANSAS CITY FOR ALL TO SEE AT THE HILLSIDE MOTEL!!!

As always, tipsters get the 1st word . . .



Description . . .

"Here's a few photos of Hillside condemned former motel. Now  an eyesore and health and safety hazard. Part of area of Blue Parkway was upgraded but now the project has been abandoned. These photos were taken near the Eastwood Trafficway light. Visitors going to stadiums can see this en route. Esp. out of town teams on buses go past it. It's a dumping ground for trash. No telling who lives there now."

Consider this a demand for KCMO to do something about a dangerous structure that should've been demolished long ago.

Moreover . . .



This place was pretty sketchy when it was open but now the abandoned complex has become a clear & present sign of KCMO in serious decay for those taking the back way to the Stadiums this Summer.

Developing . . .

Maybe think about declaring it a historic kansas city site.

That way it'll be bulldozed promptly.

A lot of people see it on the way home from the stadium as well. One of KC's worst eyesores.

3rd District. Talk to Councilman Jermaine Reed. He wants to be mayor after all.

So much for those go bonds.

You would think it would collapse under its own weight by now.

That's been an eyesore for as long as I remember.

Hot damn, with color tv and waterbeds, how the hell did this place ever go out of business?

This blight brought to you by Sly James and the city council.
They can't spend a very small portion of the new 800 million
approved by voters to fix this?

Run a streetcar line past this and it will become Las Vegas overnight!
Another adventure for those 25 million tourists who visit every year.
Or maybe throw $100 million or so of tax money at it and it can be 18th and Vine East.
Surely there's some "developer" with big big dreams and no money who can con KCMO city hall into opening the public vault!

Match....gas can....problem solved.

Yeah make it a historic district. Throw monies at it, appoint committees and hire all kinds of losers for city paid consulting positions to make sure it is a success.

What could go wrong? I mean it's working for 18th and Vine, isn't it?

^^I would like to see the property of everyone of you worthless little bitches who do nothing but complain on here. I bet you all have some shitholes of your own. Clean up your own backyards. I'm tired of reading a bunch of comments from a bunch of butthurt little bitches.

Lets rent this place out ...especially since no one can be evicted if the city fathers have their way.

3:04 shut up loser sLIE, this is your mess to clean up so quit wasting our hard earned money and spend it on the real priorities

Anonymous said...

So the commenter at 3:04 pm is actually in favor of blight? He probably owns a blighted property.

I smoked Crack 1 time there in the late 80'/early 90s. A brother from a black mother and I met at the Bar down the road, he was into that stuff and picked up a gal. I had powder coke, he had the crack. Anyho, we all partied and I tried the pipe. 1 and only time. The young lady did blow both of us. It was all good. It is a landmark! The above is approved from a white guy. P.S. we are both alive and well. Save the Hillside!

make a horror movie there before it's torn down. or, maybe burn it down or blow it up or something in the movie. i know, have a maniac on a giant bulldozer flatten it.

Calling BS on this! How did the methhead scrappers miss the copper valley flashing in the third picture?

Always surprised to drive by this place. Real shame on KC, it should get torn down before baseball season because a lot of people see it on their way to and from the K.

.....Get dynamite....and a crane....blow it up, start all over again...

Tobacco Road!

The last several years a few of us have cleaned up the creek behind this place during the Blue River Cleanup. The masonary work in this building is incredible. If it was around Branson or somewhere else it might be a million dollar property.
