Are they buying the city-owned land on the north side of that intersection?

Don't know who they purchased the land from, but it was purchased over a year ago. Mount Hope neighborhood 2943 Highland, northeast corner. Will be a very simple utilitarian building.

Oh, I was looking at the wrong intersection (29th and Highland), and not 30th and Highland.

Two new sizable development proposals for the East Side have just shown up in Compass:

A $50M, "Mixed Used Infill Development of single-family and small multi-family residential and neighborhood supporting commercial amenities in the South Vine Corridor", around 25th and Michigan.

And a $7.5M 60 unit townhouse development around 38th and Michigan/Woodland. Hopefully, this development could help revive the vacant commercial center around 39th and Woodland.

It really seems like East Side Development is starting to pick up. The Linwood Gardens affordable apartments development at Linwood and Michigan has begun construction.

From Compass.

For the Ivanhoe Townhouse Project:

For South Vine MovementKC:
https://compasskc.kcmo.org/EnerGov_Prod ... b=moreinfo

Here is an article from June 2019 about the people behind the South Vine development. There aren't really any details there (or on Compass) about the development plans. I think both of these projects are in very preliminary stages. They do list an anticipated construction date of 9/1/2020, but we'll see.

Regrettably, the chunky old brick apartment building at 33rd and Paseo partially collapsed and then was demolished a couple months ago. It was the last remnant of multifamily pre-war housing between Linwood and Armour.

Developer plans $11.2M affordable housing renovation on KC's East Side

Steele Blue Eagle LLC, an affiliate of Denver-based affordable housing developer Steele Properties, would acquire and rehabilitate 82 affordable housing units in two urban renewal areas, according to filings submitted to the Economic Development Corp. of Kansas City.

Part of the project is within the Independence Plaza Urban Renewal Area, bound by Independence Boulevard on the north, Benton Boulevard on the east, Interstate 70 on the south, and Brooklyn/Garfield/Euclid/East 12th/Brooklyn on the west.

The other portion is within the E. 23rd Street Urban Renewal Area, bound by Truman Road on the north, Van Brunt Boulevard on the east, and I-70 on the south and west.

The project includes nine buildings, eight of which are residential, according to the filings. Six of the buildings are clustered along Prospect Avenue between Ninth and 12th streets. Three are along the 2400 block of Brighton Avenue.
The tax abatement is on the LCRA agenda for the meeting this Wednesday.

An established developer was working on an extremely large project in the east side before corona (not announced). Maybe the largest urban redevelopment project by area since Power & Light.

Any idea if it’s still going ahead?
