Kansas City Skimps On Barney Allis Plaza Parking Garage Repair

Update and lowered expectations inside the loop for this central piece of real estate . . . Link tease provides more than enough info despite the paywall. Checkit:

Kansas City will spend $1.5M to 'Band-Aid' Barney Allis garage, City Council decides

Kansas City will spend more than $1.5 million repairing downtown's Barney Allis parking garage after consultants found a "magnitude of code violations" and deemed the garage a safety threat. The garage is 65 years old, and city officials have been discussing for years how to replace it and the little-seen plaza atop it.

I agree with a lot of the points you made in this article. If you are looking for the Houses For Sale On Lake Conroe

KCMO is broke. No options but short term options.

You mean to say that KCMO hasn't paid attention to one of its many many municipally-owned properties?
Shocking!
It would take a lot less time to make a list of any infrastructure the city HAS maintained.
How's the pot hole repair coming?
Any word on the downtown baseball stadium?
Sad.

This reminds me of the leaking-pipe tour of KCI where the city showed maintenance issues that warranted a whole new building. First, let it rot, then propose something new and shiny. This has caught up with them now, i don't think they even have the 1.5 million.

KC MO doesn't have the $1.5 million. The revenue projections haven't changed from six months prior for March, April and May; with or without a pandemic the numbers were overly optimistic.
