Badly needed development!

Developer says Grand Boulevard eyesore will be ‘a showplace’

"After more than a decade, a redevelopment plan for 1612 Grand Blvd. finally may remove an eyesore from the prominent commercial artery just south of Kansas City’s downtown loop.

Kelley Hrabe, co-owner of Prairie Fire Development Group, said he expects to begin noticeable work within three months to turn the boarded-up historic building into offices for his company and other tenants.

Hrabe last year unsuccessfully sought to sell the three-story brick and concrete structure and the adjacent padlocked parking lot for about $800,000. Before that, his group had proposed renovating it into market-rate apartments but backed off when so many other new and renovated housing developments blossomed in the downtown area."

Walked by tonight. Doesn’t seem to be a lot happening yet, as expected.
