DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY CORPORATE WELFARE WINNING!!! WILL LAME DUCK MAYOR SLY FINISH TERM ON SPENDING SPREE & TARNISH QUINTON LUCAS?!?!
Here's a hint that the status quo has continues in KCMO despite election hype regarding change.
Meanwhile, more gimmies for a mostly empty building threaten to undermine the new Administration of Mayor-Elect Lucas.
Take a look . . .
Fox4: New downtown office tower renews debate over tax breaks
A city committee Wednesday approved plans to build the first new office tower downtown in nearly 30 years.
The project at 13th and Main streets is renewing debate over tax incentives for downtown development.
The $94 million project actually dates back to 2004, when the city agreed to allow H & R Block to develop a second office tower across the street from its headquarters in the Power and Light District.
Plans call for building a 750 space parking garage on top of the Yard House restaurant and other storefronts already in place on the corner.
Then, 250,000 square feet of the top-notch office space would be built on top of the garage, resulting in a 25-story high tower.
Read the whole thing, it's worthwhile and without a paywall.
And so we ask . . .
WILL THIS VOTE ERODE CONFIDENCE IN MAYOR-ELECT QUINTON LUCAS OR SERVE ONLY AS THE SWAN SONG OF LAME DUCK MAYOR SLY & COUNCIL MEMBERS WAGNER, REED & JUSTUS?!?
You decide . . .
