Waldo Antiques Building Will Be Torn Down

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate-Kansas City Homes

A fixture of Waldo for decades, Waldo Antiques and Furniture closed last year.  Driving by this spot at 226 W 75th St, just east of Wornall, was a visual treat--there was usually a few eclectic pieces of furniture or odd painting on display right there on the sidewalk.  It was a local spot--a place you could wander in and browse, finding something that you wanted to buy but didn't necessarily need!

An LLC, comprised of three partners, recently purchased the building and plan to tear it down.  Working with El Dorado Inc, the new 10,000 SF building plans to host retail, services and office space.  El Dorado remodeled the Botwin building at the NW corner of 75th St and Washington --it now houses Boru and Crow's Coffee.

Say goodbye to the old brick building; hello to a modern new one.  Let's hope whatever goes up on the lot blends in with surrounding architecture. Now if only the old Brandsmart building across the street would be demolished...that place has been sitting vacant for years and is a real eyesore.  This area is prime Waldo real estate--I'm also looking forward to the street improvements planned for the 75th and Wornall intersection, although that construction is a few years off.

Thank you for supporting locally owned and operated Waldo businesses!

It sounds as though tearing this building down will make way for some new businesses. Good move!

Sometimes I hate it when a building is torn down and replaced even though it's a positive change... there's something about the waste of what was there instead of remodeling that goes against my grain.  Hope the new fits in well and is a good thing for the community.
