Asking for a “transit-oriented development” in the 1.8 acre lot. There is “no set use in mind.” Joe Reardon weighs in for one of the first times as KCATA CEO. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

I wonder how far along the RFP process is. I had heard a few months ago that the process was between three proposals, but haven’t heard anything since sometime in May or June.
According to the article, it was hoped that there would be a development plan in place by the end of summer. I hope we hear something soon, very excited to see this surface lot turned into something that will benefit the neighborhood.
love this plan but thats where i park when i come downtown. we really need a good park and ride somewhere along the line
If memory serves, the only proposals that were accepted were those that replaced all of the public parking with a (in this case I’m guessing underground) garage.
Edit: I saw this in the article above:
A 600-stall parking garage would be used by office employees and by the public at nights and on weekends.
now see i thought that but i didnt see one in the revised rendering
Small update here. Moving parking to a new structure on nearby industrial land, now 300K sq ft from 200K.
City council committee approval granted, KC star calls 3rd and Grand plan “Revolutionary”: http://www.kansascity.com/news/business/development/article127306789.html
It was supposed to go to the full council for a vote last month, where it was expected to pass, but I can’t find anything on the outcome.
Massive parking garage dropped. Office component new 200,000 SF from a previously proposed 300,000 SF.
New look here. Up! Up! Up!
Its great to see new timber technologies coming to Kansas City.
There was an update posted on Kcrag. The project will now be mixed use with the following specs
- 90 room boutique hotel
- 210 multi family units
- 24,000 sqf of office
- A “few thousand sqf” of retail space.
- Multimodal transit stop
Valued at $65 million USD
Partner developer 3G Development (possibly a New York based company)
All in all, this should amount to a tower between 6 and 11 stories. Combine this with Flaherty and Collins upcoming development and Epoch’s envisioned Delaware St complex the River-market is evolving into another dense urban region.
