I like the architectural style of these homes, but why do they have that crappy vertical siding on the sides of most of these houses?  That stuff warps and peels so quickly and makes houses look awful - not to mention it makes them look like any typical suburban home in KC with a traditional front slapped on. 

One of the requirements here at Stapleton is that whatever architectural detailing and siding is on the front of the house must extend to the sides and back, so the houses look nice from all sides.

Tosspot, it's like you ready my mind!!!  I was just in that area 2 days ago and I thought, "I wonder if Tosspot will ever take pictures of this area!"


Also, FYI: the row homes have flat roofs because it was cheaper for the developers that way.

And, as always, awesome pics!

Is that a retirement community ?

I doubt it, it's new urbanism, which isn't really targeted to any age group.

My understanding is that the flat roofs were more expensive (figuring drainage, etc.), which is why the developer is trying to switch to pitched roofs.  Which is causing a bit of a stir among current residents.  More here http://www.kansascity.com/115/story/44372.html.

And the Northgate Village development does include a retirement component (Gardens at Northgate), along with a rental component (City View) and market rate homes/townhouses (Northgate Village proper).  The retirement component is the third picture down.

Love the sky in those toss.

the company behind this project is a big supporter of the streetcar extension to NKC, for obvious reasons.

So, should the streetcar extension go down Swift or Burlington? I prefer Swift, but it seems the city council wants it on Burlington.

swift feels more like a streetcar street. there's already contiguous storefronts with decent sidewalks on most of that stretch and the traffic moves slower. burlington would be your choice if you want to attract new construction, but they really need to wrestle control of it away from MoDOT first.

I'm sorry, but why is this in KC Photos? I clicked on it and there are no photos and a discussion of a NKC project. Shouldn't this be in "North of the River"

Also - Hey - Forumers(sp?), post photo's!!! This former resident is jonesing for pics! [-o<

Swift and Armour could be streetcar streets and Burlington could be a LRT street. /fantasies

I go back and forth on both streets a lot.

I like Swift more.
the traffic load. Burlington is a state highway, swift is not and the traffic shows

looking at the 2 to 3 block idea
swift has more retail and restaurants closer and is much closer to the entertainment options
it's more centrally placed for jobs in general in NKC. I see this as a critical pairing to an Indep Ave line as a jobs line.

the reason I like Burlington more is it's a simpler alignment to go up N. Oak. If it saves money to get that branch quicker that would be a good reason. remember, the city LRT plan took a train up to Vivion so we know it's in the cards and should be accounted for

I live in the City View development and love the area/location. The senior component is building a phase II apartment building currently and is pretty close to completion.
