Northeast to benefit from outside investment
The Kansas City Star
The Northeast area of Kansas City will benefit greatly from an investment by a nonprofit group.
The Asian Americans for Equality plans to develop a long-vacant piece of property at Hardesty and Independence avenues. The Kansas City Star reports that the New York-based social welfare group plans to put in a facility that will provide healthy, locally grown food.
The development will be at the former U.S. Quartermaster Depot, which was a big food rationing operation for soldiers and civilians during World War II.
It will combine well with the greenhouse operation planned for Berkley Riverfront Park, bringing back some of Kansas City’s agrarian past. People should benefit from the fresh produce and jobs.
