An $18 million redevelopment proposal would convert a historic Kansas City high-rise into a commercial/residential property. The Sweeney Building, a 10-story structure that once housed a trucking school, would have the upper five floors converted to 55 apartments.
The building is currently 45% occupied with tenants including a kitchen design store and the Associated Press. The current tenants would be encouraged to stay on. The developer plans to have the building listed on the National Register of Historic Places, which would make the project eligible for historic tax credits.
