TKC QUESTION: SHOULD KANSAS CITY SAVE COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA CHURCH OR WELCOME NEW CONDO STRIP MALL?!?!
A half-baked scheme for more retail and expensive housing on the Plaza has sent some denizens of midtown atwitter.
Background . . .
Country Club Plaza Chuch opened in 1942 and is considered one of Kansas City's finest examples of Romanesque Revival architecture, but it is not listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has no protection from demolition.
Meanwhile, this town desperately needs an Orange Julius.
And so, we could pretend to be interested in the deets of the City Plan Commission or how Block Real Estate has basically declared war on any worthwhile building in this town and they're funding 5 of the leading mayoral candidates so their wrecking balls (ewwwwww) aren't going to be stopped any time soon.
Moreover . . .
Don't count on Historic Kansas City given that their ire has rarely proved effective and they're mostly just a group that cries bitter tears at every dramatic old school building demolition.
And so, better than any fake development propaganda, we put the question to our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY . . .
SHOULD KANSAS CITY SAVE THE COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA CHURCH?!?!?
You decide . . .
