TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY SHIPPING CONTAINER APARTMENT COMPLEX PLAN HOT MESS CLIMAX: FASHIONISTA DEVELOPER DEBATES WESTSIDE!!!
The fight over sustainable development continues in Kansas City . . . With a fascinating twist.
A neighborhood argument over an incoming and cheap slum of "luxury" shipping containers is a typical urban gentrification debate. Suburbanites usually love this kind of idea but wouldn't dare allow someone to build this kind of monstrosity in their neighborhood.
A bit about the project:
"Developer Paul Nagaoka said nothing could be further from the truth. He’s met with the Sacred Heart Neighborhood Association and the city, trying to make the development workable for the community.
“The reason I think Midtown is a good place for it is really, in the urban core, we really need more beautiful and affordable housing options, so this is what this will provide,” said Nagaoka, Syndicate Kansas City managing partner and developer.
The plans call for four buildings, made of 12 shipping containers each. The modern, eco-friendly studio apartments would be compact at around 350 square feet. The estimated price tag of $675-$775 is about half the cost of studio spaces in downtown Kansas City."
There has been a heated argument over codes, neighborhood approval and taxpayer support overall . . . But none of that is fun.
Here's the skinny thanks to KICK-ASS TKC TIPSERS with an eye for talent . . .
THE DEVELOPER OF THIS SHIPPING CONTAINER LUXURY SLUM IS A FASHIONISTA/ACTOR WHO COULD CHARM HIS WAY PAST LOCAL COMPLAINTS!!!
To be fair, even in parody, an image of the developer dude clearly looks professional as he chooses to (barely) cover nips and reveal only a tasteful, legal dick root tease.
For more about the influencer, model and fashionista . . . Check his website. Off all his varied interests, there's not much about urban planning or architecture mentioned but it's likely that he's a quick study.
The council votes on this Thursday and we hope this post puts the development in context.
Insiders tell us that Northland Council dude Dan Fowler is already a fan of Mr. Nagaoka. Again, we know that our Northland neighbors would deport their council dude if he ever allowed a shipping container slum in their part of town.
But I digress . . .
As Kansas City copes with the continued economic challenges of the pandemic, the council will decide if the future of neighborhood housing involves hipsters living in luxury shipping containers and calling it "affordable" despite the high price of this real estate speculation paid by urban neighborhoods.
