Bannister Federal Complex in KC to Be Demolished
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A massive federal complex that has operated in south Kansas City since World War II will be demolished.
CenterPoint Properties is working with the National Nuclear Security Administration to redevelop Bannister Federal Complex. The company says it will spend an estimated $175 million to demolish all the buildings and clean up the property.
The Kansas City Star reports that CenterPoint currently has no final plans to redevelop the land around the 5.1 million-square-foot complex.
The nuclear security agency will transfer the property to CenterPoint after Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies and the federal General Services Administration move out in late 2015.
The complex opened in 1943 to supply warplane engines and later supplied nuclear weapons parts.
