KC, St. Louis up for Urban Renewal Award
KANSAS CITY - Kansas City and St. Louis are among the finalists for a global award that recognizes cities that have reversed years of urban decline. In December, the World Leadership Forum will present the urban renewal award in London to one of the four cities, Kansas City, St. Louis, Manchester, England, and Calcutta, India. Last year's urban renewal award winner was Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Kansas City is cited for efforts at rebuilding its downtown by luring back residents and businesses. Among the projects: loft housing, a new arena, cleaned-up riverfront, a downtown entertainment district and performing arts center. In St. Louis, billions of dollars have been spent in bringing back its downtown, the emphasis is on historic preservation with new residential, office and retail development.
