William Threatt Jr. was sentenced in federal court Monday to five years of probation for asbestos violations at the Citadel Plaza site.
Threatt, a developer of the aborted Kansas City project, had pleaded guilty early this year to improper removal of asbestos from the site. His partner, Anthony Crompton, made a similar plea a year ago. Each could have faced a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
The proposed $90.5 million mixed-use development at 63rd Street and Prospect Avenue never materialized despite promised incentives from the city. Threatt and Crompton sued Kansas City in 2010 after the city declined to advance the project $20.5 million because of unpaid property taxes.
