Union Storage Building
The massive Union Storage Building was owned and operated continuously by the same owner from 1929 until we sold it to a Kansas City developer in 2008. It took three years to secure the underlying leased land from the railroad prior to the sale. The building was constructed for its owner and one tenant, Armour and Company. Union storage provided cold storage, and Armour operated a creamery and egg cracking plant in the building. The developer had completed a conversion to housing and retail in a downtown Kansas City building that was a smaller twin to the Union Storage building. Conversion costs and economic turmoil in 2008 made financing the project impossible. We again listed the building and sold it to a local Fargo developer who is well into a 9-million-dollar rehabilitation of the building for housing and commercial use.
