Members of the 80-year-old private club are considering an offerby architect Thomas R. Nolte and an investment group to modify theseventh through eleventh floors into condominiums with a minimumprice tag of $300,000.

|

Condominium sizes would range from 2,500 sf to 9,500 sf for anentire floor. The condominiums would replace the club's existingand sparingly used 65 guest hotel rooms.

|

The first six floors and the 12th and 13th floors would remainas a part of the Kansas City Club. Developers would like to open afour-star restaurant on the top floor.

|

Cost for the renovation would be in the neighborhood of $6million, says Nolte. The condos would be sold as shells and anymodifications or design work would be done at an additionalexpense.

|

``Originally, we looked at rehabbing this building as office ormercantile space,'' Nolte said. ``And it became very expensive. Bydoing the renovation this way, it can be both lucrative andcreative.''There has yet to be a combination of this kind in KansasCity. Nolte says he has already received one offer for a pre-saleand three club members called interested in a lease.

Although it's not official, Tom Martin Construction seems to bethe front runner for obtaining the contracting job. Nolte and hisinvestment group have six months to finalize plans with clubmembers.
