Kansas City Power & Light District Recognized with Prestigious SADI Award

New Mixed-Use or Multi-Use Development

 

Mixed-use is a burgeoning field and the industry is in need of examples of projects that get the concept right. In that vein, there is a lot to like with Cordish Co.'s Kansas City Power & Light District. The project is "sympathetic to the streetscape and location." It "respects the downtown street grid while establishing cross-block connections," and engages pedestrians by employing great variety from block to block. Judges liked, as well, how the project infuses new life and entertainment into the city.
