The renovation of the old Folger’s Coffee plant at 8th & Broadway in downtown Kansas City is now getting underway. On Friday, Nov 7, I went on a walk-through with the developers. O’Reilly Development Company of Springfield, MO is overseeing the renovation and conversion into loft apartments. These are some shots involving the roof and building interior. The plant was vacated by Folger’s in 2012. The coffee smell is gone, but they did leave behind a pile of beans. However the beans will not remain.
