Kansas City Mayor Sly James and the City Council on Thursday dedicated the future site of the downtown streetcar maintenance facility to urban design expert and 40-year transit advocate E. Crichton “Kite” Singleton.
The facility, estimated to cost $10 million, will be built at Third and Holmes streets in the River Market. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2014 and be completed a year later.
It will be an environmentally friendly building, designed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design gold standards, the second-most exacting level of environmental building requirements.
