Quickie glimpse at the latest speculative land deal in an overbuilt district that struggles with parking, crime and a real estate bubble based on hype and constant taxpayer subsidy from this town's political leadership. Read more:

New, expensive Crossroads apartments open in face of KC housing crisis

A new 12-story apartment building just opened in Kansas City's Crossroads district, bringing with it new housing options to Kansas City. It also brings new prices, and not everyone is happy about that. The building, known as Arterra, sits at 21 st and Wyandotte. It's brand-new.

Jesus that place looks like a bigger dump than Woodside Village, and that's really saying something.

Subsidizing overpriced housing and giving speeches about minimum wage and income inequality.
You really can't get much more hypocritical than that.
Has Sly picked out his rent-free pad yet?

That is one butt ugly building, it will make for a great drug drop off, and section 8. Geezer hater can go junk up without anyone around to bother him while he recovers for his penis surgery.

New, expensive Crossroads apartments...


Translation. New, expensive, or cheaply built and slapped together with subpar materials in bad weather conditions subsidized by KCMO taxpayers.

^^^^^^^^Tony Botello is right, how dare anyone move out of their mom's basement and move where they want and make something of themselves?????

Very simple: If you don't like them, don't live there! Like it or not the Denveriztion of KC is in full effect. The locals are still kicking and screaming out there too. Check out their "Rino" neighborhood. Very similar to the Crossroads in many respects and the indigenous peoples don't like all the fancy new "hipster" (read:white) gentrification. Guess what though, people who have money and a vision tend to be able to negotiate deals to actually make some positive change rather than allowing squalor and blight to perpetuate. The developers in this case got a couple of tax abatements but no subsidies. Sounds to me like haters hating because they can't afford to live there even if they want to.

^^Bingo! You have to realize that this blog is full of broken, bitter, and busted geezers who hate others who want nothing to do with them, and who are younger, richer, and better educated than them. This blog is all they have. Sad!

Why does anyone feel entitled to cheaper rent in a building that didn't exist one year ago?

Rent is still fairly inexpensive across the KCMO area. Many would love to afford a place in Westwood but no one goes around bitching about being entitled to live there. It's really sad that people complain like this rather than deal with the reality of their situations. Guess that's modern times for the losers of the world

Good points, but you still don't explain why taxpayers should subsidize rent for people to live in pricey digs.

9:44: Isn't the usual approach to make something of yourself and then move where you want?

Apartments are, in one way, like houses; you have to pay your way away from riffraff. There’s a reason people are willing to pay $800k for a house in Leawood instead of $100k in Grandview. These seemingly high rents are away to weed out the types of tenants that often bring trouble with them.
