Talk about the ever expanding north side of KC.
Glad to read this, good spot, especially with a lot of residential just to the North, the older neighborhoods but all the Multi Family they build at the North end of Burlington. I could see this sparking more, especially infill development of Swift close by. There used to be bars and such in that area, that closed. Could be some new opportunities to create a tight little "entertainment district" around that area with what is already there and nearby place along Armour Rd. Might even spur something in the building that caught on fire and was tore down at corner of Swift & Armour just to the North. Good NKC to keep things going.
Downtown NKC has retained it compact village feel for decades but any residential languished. Northgate Village is really too far distant to have much impact. Same with new residential distant on the other side of I-35. This will help and maybe get some residential in the empty lots on Burlington and the streetcar over the river could make sense.
Looks like Graney Construction is moving into a new HQ right south of this land on Swift. Nice new employer for that corner. Should bring some foot traffic to the surrounding area. Not sure how many people are employed at the HQ specifically but they have listed 650 total employees worldwide
