The Earth Just Moved at CityPlace
A standing-room only crowd gathered for the ceremonial groundbreaking surrounded by a soybean field that will yield its last harvest, as construction crews get to work on the roads and infrastructure at CityPlace. Kansas Congressman Kevin Yoder, Overland Park Mayor Carl Gerlach and Overland Park Chamber President Tracey Osborne spoke of the significant development that is expected to attract millennials and empty nesters, alike.
Bordered by Interstate 435, U.S. 69 and College Boulevard, CityPlace will offer easy access for commuters. The development will feature four office buildings totaling 600,250 square feet on 26 acres, 1,382 multi-family units on 39 acres, 39,860 square feet of retail space on 6 acres and 140 senior living units.
“We are truly thrilled to break ground today on this exciting development and all that it means for connecting the metro to the center of Overland Park and to CityPlace,” said CityPlace developer Ken Block. “As a premier mixed-use development, CityPlace will offer an unparalleled list of amenities for both our tenants and our residents.”
The first phase of construction on the Residences at CityPlace will begin in November 2014 with projected occupancy to begin by spring 2016. The first building in the Offices at CityPlace is anticipated to be under construction some time in 2015 based upon market demand.
