Children's Mercy seeks approval for 9-story hospital research tower

Kansas City, Mo.-based Children's Mercy is seeking approval from the Kansas City Plan Commission for a nine-story research tower, according to the Kansas City Business Journal.

The nine-story, 398,512-square-foot tower, to be built on Children Mercy's Hospital Hill campus above an eight-level parking garage, will house offices and research labs. Additional details, such as the cost and construction timeline, have yet to be disclosed.

On Nov. 7, Kansas City voters authorized the city to remove a half acre from the city's park system to pave way for the new tower.

Children's Mercy is also asking the city to turn a two-way street along the northern edge of the proposed tower into a one-way street to accommodate additional parking for the tower.

The Kansas City Plan Commission is expected to make a decision on the proposed tower and the one-way street request Tuesday.
