The National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA) has announced that the National Logistics Support Center and National Reconditioning Center will remain in Kansas City.

The Bannister Federal Complex, where the two centers are currently housed, is scheduled for demolition and redevelopment. That left some question as to the future of the NOAA offices, which occupy about 315,000 square feet and employee 80 people in south Kansas City.

U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri, lobbied to keep the centers in the area, and last week the General Services Administration announced it would help the NOAA find new locations in Kansas City for the centers.
