Star Development Corporation is planning a 294 unit apartment project on nearly 6 acres of land at 23rd and Swift. The block is bounded by 23rd, Swift, 25th, and Buchanan. Liberty-based J. Price Architecture is the architect on the project. The estimated cost of the project is $59 Million.

The project comes as a result of an RFP for the site. According to the BizJournal...
On Jan. 14, North Kansas City sold the 5.98-acre tract to Star Development, its pick from 10 prospective site developers that responded to an August 2019 request for proposals, according to Clay County property records.

The parties agreed to a $3 million purchase price in a development agreement approved in August 2020.
The 294 apartments will range in size and consist of...
- 204 one-bedroom units with an average size of 712 square feet.
- 81 two-bedroom units averaging 939 square feet.
- 9 two-bedroom units with dens, around 1,280 square feet.

419 parking spaces are included in the plan with 352 of them being in a three-story garage and the remaining 67 being surface.

NKC recommended approval for the project. The development agreement calls for substantial completion in 2023.

Love the use of this space that is just an empty lot rn, however, really hate the amount of parking included, especially If the Northrail is gaining more traction right now.

Agreed, though at least it is all on the NW corner which backs up to the businesses. And could be converted to another use in the future.

At least some of the parking is structured so it takes up less footprint. Like to see some more like this with ground level retail right on Burlington. This is certainly a more attractive area to live than the new apartments on the east side of 35/29 stuck between freeway and railroad tracks.

I'd like to see them get rid of that interior L-shaped parking area, scoot the garage inward (keep a greenway between the units and the garage), and wrap the frontage with walkup units. The west-facing units would be popular with roller food connoisseurs.
