Tell us more. Why? I like the looks of their first project.


Scratch that. I was thinking cityscape=Cityclub apartments at 19th and main.

Now I see that cityscape did the "Crossroads Westide" apartments, Apex and Summit at quality hill. Yeah, I'm skeptical of their urban abilities. They did one building in the Apex development that looks great (where Spokes Cafe is located). The others all look like apartments from 120th and Holmes. Summit in quality hill is just meh...


The craziest thing is the Spokes building was a late addition to the project and yet it is the best part.

Breaking news, "living downtown is expensive, there is little money in new subsidized housing construction at prime urban locations." Maybe people just need to move a couple blocks east, plenty of affordable housing.

This is the first time I have heard of this proposed development.

The elimination of the state tax credits has already derailed the construction of at least one low-income housing building downtown.

Last summer, Prairie Fire Development Group drew up plans to tear down the former Kansas City Public Schools headquarters at 1211 McGee St. and construct a 400-unit mixed-income apartment building. The plans included lofts reserved for teachers and possibly a second grocery store for downtown.

Prairie Fire partnered with a New Jersey company, The Michaels Organization, and submitted a proposal to the school district.
