Downtown apartment buildings, charter school project win approval

"Downtown Kansas City scored a triple play Thursday when two apartment projects totaling more than 300 units won incentives necessary to begin work and a plan to double the size of the Crossroads Academy charter school was approved.

The larger of the two apartment proposals is the biggest residential project to date in the West Bottoms area, a 251-unit redevelopment that includes a historic building at 933 Mulberry St. The smaller project is a new 56-unit building in the River Market area.

The Planned Industrial Expansion Authority granted the Reeder Family Trust a 15-year abatement for its project called The View at the West Bottom II.

The $30 million redevelopment plan calls for renovating the nine-story building on Mulberry Street into 189 apartments and two nearby smaller buildings at 1200 and 1218 Union St. into 62 apartments. The abatement is for 95 percent of the new value for 10 years and 50 percent for five."
