Kansas City, Mo. – Brinshore Development, LLC and the Housing Authority of Kansas City, MO in partnership with the City of Kansas City, MO held a groundbreaking ceremony for Quinlan Place, Quinlan Row and Pendleton ArtsBlock (three phases of the Paseo Gateway CHOICE Neighborhoods revitalization effort).  The event took place at the Northeast Community Center (555 Olive, KCMO), and included remarks by Mayor Sly James, Councilman Quinton Lucas, Councilman Jermaine Reed, City Manager Troy Schulte, Edwin Lowndes, the Executive Director of the Housing Authority of Kansas City, and others involved in the project.

These three phases will add 117 beautiful apartments at reasonable rental rates in three different locations within the Paseo Gateway. Developed by Brinshore Development, LLC and the Housing Authority of Kansas City, MO, these developments were made possible through financing from the City of Kansas City, MO, the Missouri Housing Development Commission, US Bank, Horizon Bank, Central Bank of Kansas City, MO and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“Pendleton ArtsBlock, Quinlan Place and Quinlan Row will punctuate the continued growth of the Independence Plaza and Pendleton Heights neighborhoods,” said David Brint. “At the same time, we will create wonderful places for people to live—of all income levels.”

Quinlan Place, Quinlan Row and Pendleton ArtsBlock also have exceptional access to job centers, transportation, cultural institutions, parks and schools within a mile of downtown Kansas City, MO.

These efforts represent the third, fourth and fifth phases of the Paseo Gateway revitalization effort. The City of Kansas City Missouri in cooperation with the Housing Authority of Kansas City, MO administers the five year, 30 million dollar Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant, intended to create mixed-income housing to replace the Chouteau Courts Apartment Complex.

“The support from HUD’s Choice Neighborhood Initiative provides the City and our partners with the rare and exciting opportunity to focus investment to transform housing options and expand service offerings for an entire community,” said Katherine Carttar, the City’s Paseo Gateway Project Manager.

Taken together, Quinlan Place, Quinlan Row and Pendleton ArtsBlock represent $27 million of private and public investment into the Pendleton Heights and Independence Plaza neighborhoods.

Residents will enjoy extra amenities including on-site management, bike racks, an intercom entry system, central AC, private balconies, in-unit washer/dryer, dishwasher, secure and off-street parking and Energy Star appliances.

The development was designed and constructed to comply with the Enterprise Green Communities Certification standards. Resident services will be provided by the Mattie Rhodes Center at all developments.

At Pendleton ArtsBlock, the development will also include micro-retail spaces for artist-entrepreneurs, an exhibit space and a maker space.
