"Two proposed hotels are testing the height requirements on the Country Club Plaza. The test comes as the Kansas City, Missouri, City Council unanimously approved the extension of the Plaza bowl overlay district in February. The proposal calls for two hotels and other amenities for the southwest corner of the intersection at W. 46th Street and Wornall Road.The requirements urge all buildings to not exceed 45 feet in the inner bowl and 90 feet in the outer bowl, which is where this proposed project is located. Renderings from the DLR Group show the hotels exceeding the 90 foot height requirement."
The opposition claims they filed their paperwork before the rules took effect.
