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.

KC Star ATA says pick of developer for River Market land signifies new role in economic development

The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority has picked a Northland developer to help the ATA transform itself into a force for economic development in the region.

With help from the Downtown Council, the transportation authority picked Briarcliff Development out of a field of five companies that responded to a request for proposals for 1.8 acres the regional transit agency owns in the River Market area.

The site at Third Street and Grand Boulevard is a surface parking lot with 193 spaces. That corner has long been seen as a potential transit hub, and the ATA has asked Briarcliff to build that potential into whatever design it comes up with for the property.

ATA unveils bold plan to bring two new office buildings to the River Market - KC Star

Kansas City Area Transportation Authority officials have put together an innovative plan that could lead to the construction of two new office buildings in the River Market.

The proposal at Third Street and Grand Boulevard has the potential to boost density of use in the urban core while providing what ATA chairman Robbie Makinen calls a “transit-oriented development.”

The 1.8-acre project site — now mostly a parking lot for about 200 vehicles — eventually could feature a pair of 100,000-square-foot office structures and 10,000 square feet of retail.

A transportation hub would serve passengers of local bus lines, the new streetcar system and a future commuter rail line. A 600-stall parking garage would be used by office employees and by the public at nights and on weekends.

Approved today:

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.

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.
