KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The U.S. General Services Administration has officially begun transferring ownership of its property at a south Kansas City complex to the National Nuclear Security Administration.

The two agencies currently share ownership of the 310-acre complex. On Wednesday, officials with the two agencies signed an agreement that will transfer ownership to the nuclear administration.

The GSA owns about 2 million square feet, or about half the total square footage, at the complex, which opened in 1942 to build aircraft engines for World War II.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1ymMTcY ) the two federal agencies have been working for more than three years to prepare the complex for redevelopment. An environmental and engineering evaluation of the property has begun.

The GSA is moving its 1,000 employees to downtown Kansas City.
