KSHB Channel 41 reports that a City Council subcommittee selected the site, which they’re determined to throwaway money on. The Kansas

City Business Journal says the committee chose developer Ron Jury’s $350

million plan (the Biz Journal even has an artist’s rendering of what it would look like).

It’s better than taking over Barney Allis Plaza.
