A friend from Chicago just sent me the March / April 2008 issue of Constructor Magazine. The cover story, "Kansas City Beefs Up Its Urban Profile" features two stories: Urban Renaissance as well as a piece about the Sprint Center. Both pieces are obviously written for a particular audience, but give an interesting and helpful perspective on the growth and development within our city.
The city known best for its blues and barbecue is now also benefiting from billions of dollars of new business.
The current issue of Urban Times also features a piece on Kansas City's present development strategy for the neighborhoods of the greater downtown area (as well as an unrelated piece on great dining opportunities on Southwest Boulevard).
