Kansas City, Mo. – February 21, 2019 – The City Council of Kansas City, Missouri recently approved the rezoning of approximately 50 acres near the Grandview Triangle, southwest of the Cerner headquarters, which will allow for the development of Riverbirch, an upscale multifamily residential project, the first of its kind in the area in over 20 years.

The developer, represented by Rouse Frets White Goss Gentile Rhodes, will soon begin work on the project, the Riverbirch Townhomes. Plans call for a total of 204 units in 51 two-story buildings to be built in two phases, with construction starting in late summer and completion set for 2020. The community will offer two- and three-bedroom units for lease plus amenities, with the goal of attracting young professionals working at Cerner, Honeywell and other south Kansas City area employers.

The project will offer market rate units and was unanimously approved by the City Council of Kansas City  without economic development incentives.
