What do you see in this historic property’s future?

It’s your turn to be the broker. The KC Streetcar is making its way down Main Street, where there are several empty commercial spaces for sale. We like to see it as an empty canvas to imagine what could come next for the Midtown, Westport, and Plaza neighborhoods — basically, daydreaming for grown-ups.

Now, we want you to be the broker: What do you envision for these properties?

Hyde Park Building, 2 E. 39th St. | 13,700 sqft
With two floors and a basement, this 1905 Beaux-Arts style building is fully vacant and begging for a redeveloper. The seller is also putting the Walnut Building right behind it up for sale, an 8,000-sqft retail space connected to the first building through a courtyard in the back.

410 Archibald St. | 10,200 sqft
This 100-year-old building has more charm than we can handle. With exposed wood beams and lots of natural light, it’s hard to picture the space being empty for long.

Editor Bella’s suggestion: The location and natural light in this building are calling for local artists and makers. With all of that space, I am picturing an art studio and store front where makers can both work and sell their creations.

Jacob Loose Mansion, 101 E. Armour Blvd. | 14,416 sqft | $4,300,000
This historic property is outfitted with interior upgrades and a full liquor license — the opportunities are endless. We’re picturing an event space for weddings, corporate events, or even art galleries.

204 W. Linwood Blvd. | 13,821 sqft | $1,500,000
This property is just one block from a future Streetcar stop — a real hot commodity spot.

Editor Bella’s suggestion: With how stunning the exterior of this building is, I can see it being a beautiful bed and breakfast.
