Just a random update, I emailed Jonathan Arnold yesterday to inquire as to when this would get underway. He stated that they are scheduled to break ground in September.


good work

Getting close to kickoff, near schedule.

Construction to begin soon on precedent-setting ‘green’ apartments on Kansas City riverfront

important information:

explains the setup of the building in reference to the grid and explains that Delaware will split the two halves of the building. maybe i was the only one confused and thought that the whole development would sit between Delaware and main or Delaware and wyandotte

Energy-efficient Second and Delaware apartment project moves forward
KC Star

A Kansas City taxing authority on Thursday approved the issuance and sale of up to $30 million in Multifamily Housing Revenue Bonds to help finance acquisition and construction of the Second and Delaware apartment project in the River Market.

The authorization by the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority is part of the financing needed by developer Jonathan Arnold for the residential complex that’s earning national attention for its innovative energy efficiency and “lean construction” processes.

Anticipated groundbreaking is end of November.

Anyone know the progress on this project

Haven’t seen any dirt moving yet. Look like there might be some small equipment in the area.

Work underway on ground-breaking Kansas City River Market apartments - KC Star

Heavy equipment began rumbling this week on Second and Delaware, a planned apartment complex in Kansas City’s River Market that will use “greener-than-green” building techniques.

Amid an explosion of downtown area residential construction, the $62 million Second and Delaware project is unique in its Passive House Institute-certified construction, a building method that is more energy-efficient than the highest LEED-certified standards.

Good portion of 2nd St blocked off, and a lot of dirt being moved.

Dirt hauling is picking up pace.

Below ground garage is well underway.

Few updates here. Now shooting for October 2017 opening. Single tower crane currently onsite.

A picture from the Northeast corner of the site (taken on Jan 28th). Good view of the garage.


Residents are currently scheduled to begin moving in on March 1, 2018.

Uh oh:

Anonymous sources have told me that HarenLaughlin has discontinued their work on this project. Legal battle is likely, from what I understand.
