Country Club Plaza

Country Club Plaza

Location: Broadway and Nichols Road Kansas City, MO

Stakeholders: Historic Kansas City Foundation, Friends of the Plaza, Business Owners, KC Residents

The Plaza, the first planned suburban shopping center in the world, is designed in the Spanish Revival style and is a valuable and recognizable Kansas City asset that attracts tourists from around the world.  HKC has long recognized that maintaining the character and historic integrity of the Plaza is essential to preserving Kansas City’s heritage and economic success.

HKC was a leader in the City’s update of the Midtown/Plaza Area Plan, which culminated in a zoning ordinance that limits height and land use in the historic core of the Plaza and an updated Plan that provides the framework for protecting the Plaza area and Midtown. Thank you to Highwoods, City staff, and all parties involved in this momentous effort!
