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: http://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2017/06/26/contractor-sues-developer-of-60m-river-market.html

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

Things are still in holding pattern. Little info here.


  • Arnold Development is planning to restart the Second and Delaware project in April, but that’s subject to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recasting and resizing its loan for the project.
  • Negotiations with a new general contractor for the project have resulted in its total development cost being increased from about $60 million to $96 million.

I’m glad to see this project get back underway.

  • Target construction restart date: August 2018
  • Target completion date: (roughly) May 2020

Any word on who the new contractor is going to be?

Crew on-site recently – not sure I can make out the firm on side of truck, though.

Crossland had trucks out there last week.


Rolling again in August.
