• Welcome to Historic Kansas City

    Welcome

    On March 6, the Kansas City Business Journal reported the Kansas City Opus Group has submitted plans for a “mixed-used project including 256 apartments, 8,500 square feet of commercial space and a 275-space tenant parking garage.” The proposed development would replace the Bank of America Building at the southwest corner of Westport Road and Broadway.  On May 16th, after nearly three hours of testimony, the Kansas City Plan Commission approved rezoning and development plans for OPUS.  HKC and the majority of the people who testified spoke against the plan. Most said they thought the building was too big, too dense and was architecturally wrong for the character of “Old Westport,” especially at that prominent corner site.

     The project next goes to the City Council’s Planning, Zoning and Economic Development Committee for further consideration onWednesday, June 7, 2017, 1:30 p.m., Council Chambers.  Check our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.
