1034 Main is just on hold, waiting for a tenant. So it isn't going to fail. I've talked with the developers and they have confirmed they are just waiting for a tenant.

The H&R Block tower has 100% chance of being built, they are doing work on the surrounding roads and I think it is going to start construction either this fall or next spring, i can't remember.

KC has about 152 midrises and highrises (from 9 floors and up) this will boost that number to 175.

We have 145 buildings over 10 floors, this will boost that up to 167.

by comparison, right now, STL has 163 buildings over 10 floors. Plus they have about 5 or 6 highrises proposed. (which would put them at 168 over 10 floors)

The world and national economy has always had little effect on KC's economy, so I wonder what KC's skyline will look like in 30 years, maybe the Plaza skyline will be more visible. KC should continue boom, despite the world or national economy...

thanks for answering my Q lol. (I asked that question on the KC site)

Who are you anyway? chrizow? staubio? scooterj?

Yea, I had forgotten that KC boomed during the depression.

I can't believe how much has happened since 2001 (in KC). We have had 16 new buildings over 9 floors. In just 3 years no less.

Its amazing to see all the high-rise construction going on. these look like excellent projects and will only add to the urban image of the city.

And I'm sure Mayor Kay Barnes is working on getting more businesses from other cities too.

Of course, this isn't counting renovations or recent completions.

Kansas City is really booming! It is neat to see all the construction going on in the city. I hope that a tenant can be found quickly because I like the look of the first tower.
