KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A development firm owned by Lamar Hunt Junior is making a big investment to help revitalize the downtown area in Kansas City, Kan. Minnesota Avenue is being transformed.
The former Katz drug store and EPA office building are being rehabbed. There’s 50,000 square feet of space that can be turned into shops, offices and professional services.
A gourmet coffee shop will be the first tenant in the old drug store. Cup On The Hill will be a non-profit, dedicated to teaching job skills to teens in the area.
