This week, city officials announce what is being described as the first “vertical development” on Kansas City’s riverfront in more than 100 years.

 

After decades of inaction, a $65 million development featuring 398 luxury apartments, retail, a fitness club, pool and sky bar is detailed on a five-acre site adjacent to the Berkley Riverfront Park. Why has it taken this long for there to be development along the river, when a downtown waterway is normally considered a prized asset in most cities?

‘Boulevardia” in the West Bottoms, Cantor defeat, Jane Chu’s confirmation as head of the National Endowment for the Arts and other stories on the program. This week’s news reviewers: Eric Wesson of The Call, Mary Sanchez of the Kansas City Star, Steve Vockrodt of The Pitch and Dave Helling of the Kansas City Star.
