More on the benefits of State Historic Tax Credits

With Kansas all but eliminating their historic tax credit program and Missouri beginning to scale theirs back, it's difficult to say whether buildings in this condition would be saved in the future.

If all goes as planned, this Midtown apartment building will be restored to its former glory. While still far from the worst pre-rehab conditions I've ever seen (The Hotel President retains that honor), this building offered a very unusual mix of extreme decay and interesting artwork. Scary AND fun, like a roller-coaster ride through the Guggenheim!
