Vibrant Urban Environment

Live in the middle of what makes Kansas City great. Living Downtown puts both nightly entertainment and daily essentials within your doorstep.


Connecting our Destinations, Catalyst for Development

  • Project Overview

    The initial streetcar line in Downtown represents a $100 million public/private investment in the future of Downtown Kansas City. The streetcar will be operational in late 2015, free to ride and operate daily in mixed traffic primarily on Main Street connecting Union Station and the River Market.

  • Economic Development

    Since voters approved the streetcar in 2012, over 40 development projects – an estimated $900 million investment – have been completed, started construction or have been announced within the boundaries of the Transportation Development District. A map of the projects can be found here.
