This one-acre site sits on the southwest side of the desirable Power & Light District, an area that has become the cultural hub of the Midwest. With this site’s strategic location, it benefits from being proximate to the Convention Center, Grand Ballroom, T-Mobile Center as well as KC Live!, an entire city block dedicated to entertainment with two levels of world-class restaurants, taverns and nightlife hubs.

Nearby transportation options abound offering almost immediate access to a network of roadways, including I-70, I-35 & I-29, as well as easy access to the Kansas City International Airport. By the numbers, Kansas City welcomes over 10 million visitors a year and the Power & Light District is now home to over 32,000 residents and counting.

In recent years, the Power & Light District has also experienced a surge of residential development, with the construction of high-rise towers known as One Light, Two Light and Three Light, rivaling some of the finest apartment buildings in the country. Among such company, the subject site stands ready for the development of a world-class multifamily or hotel experience.

This sale offers investors and developers alike an opportunity to acquire one of the last well-located, infill development opportunities in this district of downtown Kansas City.
