Development in Kansas City is booming, and that’s clear by looking at the 2017 Capstone Awards program.
This year, the Kansas City Business Journal honors an astounding 34 real estate and development projects. A panel of independent judges chose the winners from among a record 108 nominations.
One project in particular has put downtown development on the right track — the Kansas City streetcar, which opened in May. The 2.2-mile starter line has been a driver of $1.2 billion in development that was completed or under construction as of January.
Several projects along the streetcar line also were recognized: 1914 Main Apartments, Centropolis on Grand, Corrigan Station, Courtyard/Residence Inn Downtown Kansas City and Power & Light Apartments.
But the Capstone honorees aren’t just in the city core. Winning projects ranged from the Northland south to Grandview and from Edgerton east to Independence. And projects appeal to all demographics, from the family-friendly Donutology renovation of a former dry cleaning operation to senior housing in a former elementary school at Faxon School Apartments.
Read on to learn more about these and all the honorees, as well as the key players that helped bring each project to fruition.
