Posting the full text of a paywall article like that wouldn't be allowed, but here are the key points:

Quote:
Two Light, the luxury apartment complex developed by The Cordish Cos. in downtown Kansas City, has reached 96 percent occupancy just ahead of hitting its one-year mark.

...

Soon, attention will turn to the developer's next project, Three Light, which would be the third of four high-rise apartment towers Cordish plans to develop within the Power & Light District.

Benjamin said the company is full steam ahead on the construction drawings for the project, located at a site along Truman Road between Walnut and Main streets, and anticipates starting construction in the fourth quarter.

He said they haven't finalized all of the details for the $130 million, 300-unit building, but the mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments will be similar to One Light and Two Light.

I have to admit, this "city center" development in Lenexa is turning out pretty nice. I always wondered if they could pull it off, but it looks like they are doing it. It's a very large scale development with a lot of different types of uses. There is even a transit bus in this video. This area is served by buses?

My younger brother lives west of there past SMP and it's quite impressive. It's like a brand new town being built, with residential, commercial and retail in a pretty compact area with larger commercial surrounding. I wouldn't want to live there, but if I worked out there, it would be nice I guess. From what I noticed, there were quite of few more plots of land being cleared for more development.

I think having 87th going right through it is going to be the key. That and focusing on uses more than just mall stores. Library, rec center, etc.

Wondering if the side streets will connect directly to neighborhoods around it instead of some 10 ft barrier wall or privacy fence.

Way better compared to Zona Rosa. It already looks like it's seen better days...

From kcrag.

New rendering of Three Light. Appears to be about 32 stories from the ground to the top of the roof. They have done quite a bit to make the building interesting and differentiate it from Two Light. I also like how they are just using "3" rather than putting big "THREE LIGHT" into the skyline. I think it looks great



Oh and the tower crane is up for the Reverb apartment tower



And Lowes hotel is topped out

Just ran into this thread. Amazing! The sheer volume of new apartments and offices is stunning. Is KCMO attracting enough new residents (young professionals, for examples) to fill all these places, or are people ditching the burbs and moving into the city? Just asking, since it seems like literally hundreds/thousands of new apartments.
