Downtown Kansas City endures as the region's largest employment center and fastest growing residential neighborhood area. The Downtown area benefits from a substantial volume of housing intermixed with offices, health care, education, a strong convention and tourism business, a vibrant art scene, and award winning restaurants. 


Considerable new investment activity continues to evolve the Downtown landscape with new luxury apartment options, hotels, restaurants, and entertainment options. In just the last five years over $3 billion has been invested downtown with an abundance of new exciting developments on the horizon. Some of the most noteworthy planned projects include the Kansas City Royals ballpark district, the South Loop Project, West Bottoms Redevelopment and Greenline KC. Together these major projects represent approximately $3 billion of additional investment and will be transformative for the region.
