DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY STRATA OFFICE BUILDING STAYS WINNING DESPITE EMPTY PROMISES OF INCENTIVE REFORM!!!

This isn't a compromise . . . It's a betrayal and reminder that the status quo in Kansas City continues . . .

The updated deal cuts out a $27 million investment in city money that would have given the city a 28% revenue stake in the project. However, the city still would be a financial backstop for a $36 million parking garage, but it wouldn’t put any upfront money into the deal.
