Veterans Groups Choose Troost Corridor for Headquarters



Three veterans-services groups have chosen the Plexpod Westport Commons office complex as their temporary headquarters and are setting up a new organization, called Center for Military and Veterans Reintegration (CMVR), which aims to help veterans transition into civilian life. The organization plans to move into a permanent space, at 3125 Troost Ave., in the historic Shankman Building.

“As the heart of America, Kansas City is the perfect place given its easy access to any place in the country, veteran-friendly atmosphere, opportunities for employment, homeownership and small business development,” says NVTSI President and Co-Founder, Maurice D. Wilson, in a press release.

The building, being renovated as a larger project by Troost Midtown Redevelopment Partners. CMVR will take up 1,500 square feet, while other offices and retailers are expected to join in the project’s leasing up.
