Downtown stats dashboard

Post by earthling » Mon Oct 14, 2019 11:37 am

Downtownkc.org has a dashboard for stats such as population and employees.

https://www.downtownkc.org/research-reports/

It currently says 28K population and near 124K employees. The latter seems high even factoring 'greater' downtown as a lot of office space converted to residential.

Also says around 5K units planned and under construction. That should put greater downtown pops well over 35K when complete, which some urban planners have set as an important milestone for KC to hit. Potentially easier to attract broader range of retailers (like Target).
