By a 3 to 2 vote - the KC-MO City Plan Commission said no to a proposed building on the Country Club Plaza for a local law firm.
The Polsinelli Shughart group had planned a new- 8-story headquarters at the northeast corner of 47th Street and Broadway in the historic retail area.
Intense opposition to that plan caused the law firm to make several changes in the original plan that included dropping the height of the proposed building to seven stories and retaining the facade of an original Plaza building that was to be razed for the new construction.
According to The KANSAS CITY (MO) STAR- Polsinelli Shughart hopes to have the Plan Commission's recomendation overturned by a City Council motion introduced by a yet-unknown councilperson.
That piece of potential political suicide will probably be held-off until after the city elections in March.
