Kansas City Hipsters Takeover Troost Village

Call it investment or gentrification, Kansas City's racial dividing line is now a zone for real estate speculation.

If things go "right" then the last remaining longtime residents will be driven away by higher taxes. If the plan FAILS, this effort will be added to so many pricey redevelopment schemes that never paid off.

Here's hack hype promoting the project without any well-deserved skepticism:

Troost Village Plan Would Transform Heart of Historic Commercial District

A $162 million redevelopment concept that would energize the historic commercial heart of Troost Avenue by adding apartments, retail, office and an amphitheater is being pursued by Midtown Development Partners.

  12. So does this include the four corners that MAC Co. was suppose to start a year ago? I noticed it says all the way down to Armour Blvd. I'm assuming that's a yes. Can't wait to see this fail. They already tried further down Troost and those renovated buildings are now used for storage. That coffee shop never has anyone in it and the same people are hanging out same as before. Oh I get it. TAX write off. Of course.
