To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS CELEBRATE THE HOUSING BOOM OUT NORTH AND CRUNCH NUMBERS TO REVEAL A SHIFT IN THE LOCAL BALANCE OF POWER NOW UNDERWAY!!!
Whilst everybody else is busy collecting consulting checks and spinning the company line about all the empty luxury condo, loft and apartment space in and around the loop . . . The Northland is building homes for families in better school districts . . .
A recent design competition for Twin Creeks inspired a second look from our blog community.

Like it or not, hipsters moving into exposed brick wall overpriced housing subsidized by their parents doesn't compete with this ongoing mass exodus from urban life.
Accordingly, we await the new redistricting process and how local government will compensate for dwindling 3rd District population coupled with this mass movement of diverse communities throughout Kansas City desperately searching for the good life across the bridge.
