River Market Development Stays Losing Despite Kansas City 'Green' Pipe Dreams

Environmentalism and streetcar hype don't live up to promises as this real estate endeavor seems to be falling apart. Take a look:

Lawsuit, other delays interrupt 'greener-than-green' River Market apartment construction

The internationally touted apartment project on the edge of Kansas City's River Market was supposed to be open by now. Instead, the $62 million "passive house" development, promising better energy efficiency than the highest LEED-certified standards, remains less than half done, and construction is stalled.

Did the hipster millennials living in the River Market realize they were about to be overrun by low income section 8 residents? Thank god this project stopped. River Market was about to turn into the hood.

Streetcar has brought nothing but problems to River Market

River Market doesn't need anymore subsidized apartments. The area needs parking garages.

Get that Toot Toot run down there and the millionaires will open millions of dollars of businesses and that stalled project will be finished. It will be another step in maintaining our FIRST CLASS cowtown CITY. That Toot Tooot will bring VIBRANCY to an otherwise drab apartment complex near some dirty smelly water. Toot Toot Toot Toot

This land they are building on was a toxic dump. I doubt if the developer took care of that prior to digging the first footing. Also, it's right across the river from one of the smelliest places this side of a paper mill. When the wind is blowing from the north, the Ingredion plant will make you want to hurl. I couldn't believe they would get people to move anywhere near the place.
