Healthy Campus • Kansas City, KS

In October 2015, CBC Real Estate Group was chosen by the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kan., (UG) to manage and represent its interests as Development Project Manager and Owner’s Representative for its Healthy Campus. A roadmap for the revitalization of Downtown Kansas City, Kan., the Healthy Campus is a $30 million redevelopment project near the intersection of 10th Street and Minnesota Avenue.

In late 2014, with tremendous support from the philanthropic community and extensive input from local stakeholders, an implementation plan for the Healthy Campus was adopted. The plan identified a need for project leadership, which is why the UG sought an organization to be responsible for ensuring that day-to-day, incremental decisions are consistently driving the long-term vision. After a thorough, competitive bid process garnering interest from a number of area businesses, the UG selected CBC to serve as Owner’s Representative and Development Project Manager for the Healthy Campus.

In this role, CBC worked as an extension of the UG staff to guide the implementation of the Healthy Campus plan, oversee day-to-day activities with initial focus on securing the successful development of a community center and grocery store. CBC also reviewed and evaluated proposals from developers interested in housing and corporate office development within the corridor, negotiating incentives on behalf of the UG and serving as the conduit for all real estate and development activity surrounding the Healthy Campus — while adhering to the vision
of the master plan.
