Port KC, the organization in charge of riverfront development in Kansas City, has an ambitious plan for the south bank of the Missouri River.
For Michael Collins, the group's president and C.E.O, the idea of another park on the river isn't enough.
"We want to see what we can do to push the needle or do better than other riverfront communities across the country," says Collins.
Though Collins says it's too early to talk specifics, the first stage of development will be multi-family housing and mixed-use retail. Groundbreaking is slated for this fall.
