That's a failry misleading stat. KC's postwar annexation includes a ton of totally undeveloped rural land. Of its 314 square miles only 169 are developed. The rest is literally woods and farms. The density of that 169 square miles is almost excatly equal to Charlotte, and its urbanized area is significantly denser. Dallas, meanwhile, has both a denser city limits and a denser urbanized area.

I was aware of that. My calculation was, in part, intended to show what KC's population might look like if it were entirely built out.

Here's an interesting fact. If we had the same density as St. Louis, our city's population would be over 1.6 million, about tied with that of Philadelphia or Phoenix.

With the new apartments, we probably won't have that many people. It's possible that we could surpass 500,000 by 2020. Probably will anyway.

The Plaza area may get another two tall buildings in the near future. A developer has designs for a 168-unit apartment building and a nearby 252-room hotel at 46th Street and Wornall.

The buildings would replace surface parking lots that currently wrap around the Residence Inn at 46th Terrace and Broadway.
Quote:
The apartment building would reach 13 stories above street level, while the hotel would be a 10-story structure, according to plans.

Not entirely surprising -- St. Louis is a rowhouse city like Philadelphia, and Kansas City has double Philadelphia's land area.

$45M apartment project near Kemper Arena wins support


Quote:
Ryan Cronk, a vice president of development for Flaherty & Collins, told the PIEA board that the four-story project will include 230 market-rate apartments over 8,000 square feet of retail. It will be developed on an underused surface parking area immediately south of the Livestock Exchange Building, 1600 Genessee St., and just north of Kemper Arena.

Awesome, to say the least. The Westbottoms looks to be picking some major steam in the southwest part of the district. Now, if more of the older buildings could get some attention, that would be great!!

Unfortunately, the suburban part of KC will continue to build swaths of boring cookie cutter type housing developments with a few modern uninspiring apartment complexes sprinkled in. I'm hoping though, that the inner city will continue to sprout up more and more infill loft style apartments, 6 and 7 stories high. Kansas City has so many old apartment buildings along the 35th street corridor. Many of those, east of Troost Ave, are sitting empty. I'm hoping some kind of interest gets generated in rehabbing them.

here are some old renderings of what they planned on doing with this space and with any luck we will see something similar to this when this area is complete.

What is surprising, to many at least, is that the 50 square miles of urban KC is only slightly less dense than StL City's 66 square miles. Within 500 ppsm.
