Flaherty & Collins Properties on March 13 broke ground on a $41 million mixed-use project in Kansas City, Missouri.

Called The Yards, the 247,600-square-foot luxury apartment development will be in the Kansas City Stockyards District and should be completed in the summer of 2019.

The Yards will consist of 232 market-rate apartments, ranging from studios to two-bedroom units, and 3,150 square feet of commercial retail space.

Designed by Kansas City architecture firm KEM Studio, The Yards will be authentic to the district’s heritage by stitching together design components of the iconic, modern Kemper Arena and the historic Livestock Exchange building, Flaherty & Collins said.

“We look at the Stockyards as a crown jewel for the long term in the Kansas City market,” Ryan Cronk, Flaherty & Collins’ lead project developer, said in a prepared statement.

The Yards will feature a communal lounge and co-working area, saltwater pool and outdoor kitchen area, an activity lounge and fitness center, bark park, and a sky deck with views of downtown Kansas City.•
