Not much new in a KC Star article from the weekend: http://www.kansascity.com/news/business/development/article18353747.html

Does define November as the planned opening, from ‘Late 2015’. Gives a good background on all the things that had to be removed from the buildings, due to it formerly being a coffee plant, prior to starting the actual conversion.

The middle courtyard between the buildings should have most work done by August. Will be one of the few places with 3BR units.

how many people living in downtown kc does it take to get kc based businesses to locate an HQ there? the world may never know

Balconies added to north “The Boss” building.


New signage up.

Appears that the smaller, Boss, building is now open for leasing.
