Highlighting this year’s program will be a briefing by Spencer Levy, the CBRE executive from Baltimore and icon of global commercial real estate, along with a panel discussion featuring four Downtown business leaders who are on the cutting edge of commercial office planning for today and tomorrow.

Mark your calendars for 3 p.m. Tuesday for the virtual, 4th annual Downtown KC Office Summit, presented by the Downtown Council of Kansas City (DTC). There is no charge for tickets, which are available via Eventbrite. A pre-Summit program will begin at 2:45.


Downtown Council participates in national COVID-19 survey

As COVID-19 continues to profoundly impact communities nationwide, the Downtown Council has joined ranks with a national research effort to explore the priorities, concerns, and behaviors of residents and business leaders.

As local governments, businesses and each of us move toward the winter season, the survey is seeking input in order to plan the next steps in response to the ongoing pandemic. Please take a few minutes to provide your opinions and share priorities on important issues that affect our health and our economy during these challenging times.

This research is sponsored by the International Downtown Association. Your answers will be confidential and will be reported only in aggregate along with all other responses. The DTC will have access to confidential summarized local responses, as well as national responses.

Follow this link to complete the survey this week. Contact Jared Campbell or Ann Holliday with any questions.
