Burns & McDonnell is on track for starting its $139.5 million headquarters expansion later this month following unanimous support from a Kansas City Council committee.
The plan includes $42 million in tax increment financing assistance over 23 years and a Chapter 100 bond that will save the company $42 million in property taxes over 25 years. About 82 percent of the total cost of the project will come from private sources. The full council is expected to approve the project today.
The Burns & McDonnell expansion will replace a dilapidated former synagogue with an office campus that’s expected to accommodate the 2,100 additional employees the Kansas City engineering firm plans to hire over the next decade.
