Innovative Artist Housing in Kansas City

The Kansas City Star reported on one of the most unique projects developing in the Paseo Gateway, the Pendlenton ArtsBlock, a 38-unit building on Independence Avenue that will house artists and families, and have first-floor common spaces and retail to promote art. Greater Kansas City LISC was able to provide $1.5 million to help finance this concept as well as several other new housing projects in the Paseo Gateway leveraged with HUD’s Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant. We are extremely proud to partner with Brinshore, the Housing Authority of Kansas City, the City of KCMO, and many others to bring dynamic, affordable housing on-line in the Historic Northeast.

“What’s particularly exciting is that we are layering LISC’s assets. In addition to our capital investment, we have two creative placemaking grants currently at work in the Northeast that are adding a rich arts-oriented perspective to the revitalization of the area. Thanks to organizations like Charlotte Street Foundation and Megan Crigger at the City, arts and culture are now seeping into new and diverse projects in our more challenging neighborhoods,” stated LISC Executive Director Stephen Samuels.

LISC is pleased to see this story being shared in Kansas City today, and we look forward to continued development in the Historic Northeast. To see the full story, go here.
