I don't see any mention of income requirements on these. What guarantee is there that these will go to the folks that the affordable housing uproar represents? Why would they not be snatched up by businesses that routinely house employees or by folks that want a second home in town? (Though, maybe in KC that's not a thing.) Are there restrictions against them being used as Airbnb?

Cordish doesn’t allow Airbnb (I tried when One Light was new)

Now if they can just rent out the ground floor to some useful retail tenants...

Per article in KCBJ, 1/3 of units will require income at or below 80% AMI.

Should this thread be moved to Power and Light as it’s considered part of that project.
Done. Also updated the title to the official project name.

Help me out, here. Which article in KCBJ, please? Not seeing it in "Cordish plans $25M affordable housing project at Midland", posted 5/14.
