Large mixed-use project seems to still be on track and possibly getting bigger.
The Kansas City Plan Commission on Tuesday approved an amended plan that expands a redevelopment proposal for partly vacant land immediately south of Crown Center.
Commissioners agreed that an 18.4-acre site, generally south of 27th Street and between Gillham Road and Grand Boulevard, is blighted and in need of redevelopment. The heart of the revised plan would add more residential units — a mix of market-rate apartments, town homes and condominiums — along McGee Trafficway.
The development team of Milhaus and UC-B Properties is buying property from Crown Center Redevelopment Corp. to expand the total project. About 400 housing units are proposed.
