Restoration of the former bus station and Pickwick Plaza Hotel continues with the announcement that a UPS Store will open on the ground floor of the redevelopment.
A spring opening is scheduled for the UPS facility, the company’s first in downtown Kansas City.
City Gym previously was announced as a commercial tenant in the Pickwick Plaza project.
The $65 million redevelopment of the block-long structure also has begun accepting tenants in East 9 at Pickwick Plaza, comprising 45 residential apartments on the north side of the block at Ninth and McGee streets.
Never miss a local story.
The entire Pickwick Plaza project will provide 215 more apartments on the south side of the block later this year.
Gold Crown bought the vandalized and fire-damaged property in 2010 and began rehabilitation in October 2015. The project includes a seven-story tower on the north end, a 10-story tower on the south end, and a nine-level, 300-space parking garage.
