|Abstract||Kansas City has reached an agreement to acquire and tear down the former Greyhound bus terminal located at 11th and Holmes in the east side of downtown. "Purchasing and demolishing the block-sized complex was a key requirement in the deal struck two years ago between the city and J. E. Dunn Construction Group that resulted in the company building a new headquarters at 11th and Locust streets. Its removal also is an important component of the East Village redevelopment plan." The structure with garage opened in 1967 as a bus terminal and later, from 1989-1993, it housed a sporting goods store. Recently it has been vacant and frequented by the homeless. The sale price was not disclosed.Article includes picture of the building. |
"As part of the deal leading to the $60 million J. E. Dunn headquarters and garage project, the city agreed to acquire and demolish the old bus terminal along with three other properties in the East Village redevelopment area: the former Cherry Street Inn at Ninth and Cherry streets, a commercial bail bonds building at 11th and Cherry, and a former day labor building at Ninth and Cherry." These other three properties have been purchased by the city.
