Opus Launches MF Project in KC’s Westport District

The Opus Group, along with Central Bank of the Midwest and CTK Real Estate, has begun construction on a 256-unit mixed-use apartment complex in the historic Westport neighborhood of Kansas City, MO. The development, located at the corner of Westport Road and Broadway Boulevard, will also feature 10,000 square feet of ground-level retail space.

“Westport has a unique, historical aesthetic, and this project will bring that attitude to life in a contemporary way,” said Joe Downs, VP and general manager, Opus Development Company.

The six-story project will include two guest suites and 254 apartment units, which will be a mix of junior studio, studio, alcove, one and two-bedroom floorplans. With Opus Development Company as developer, Opus Design Build is the design-builder and Opus AE Group is the interior designer, architect and structural engineer of record. The project is slated to be completed in spring 2020.
