Overland Park Kansas Remains Nationally Recognized City

When it comes to locations, commercial real estate developers know it pays to be in areas at the top
Overland Park Kansas
of the list. Overland Park, Kansas has received dozens of top awards in the last few years recognizing it as one of the most livable cities in the nation. It’s one of many reasons Block Real Estate Services, LLC (BRES) chose a prime Overland Park locale for CityPlace, a premier multi-use development with projected occupancy to begin by spring 2016.

BRES has a rich history of experience in pursuing development opportunities that hold significant potential for return on investment. A valuable location is critical so your tenants can easily find your space and employees will like the area they work in. Occupying an area that is nationally recognized is a win-win for everyone involved.

The second largest city in Kansas, Overland Park is acclaimed for attracting families and young professionals. Meticulous planning by city leaders has given Overland Park an ideal balance of residential, office and retail space with top ranked sports facilities, superb schools, and abundant amenities. It was recently ranked 17th in the 2015 “Top 100 Places to Live” by Livability.

According to the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce and the Overland Park Economic Development Council, Overland Park was also honored by CNN Money Magazine three times in a row as one of the “Top 10 Places to Live in America.”

In 2014 alone, Overland Park was ranked:
