Residential Property Development
Improving lives through residential development that meets community needs.
Among many neighborhoods in the central city, Community Builders of Kansas City stands out as the strong, stable and experienced community development corporation. We create partnerships to meet a community need, building on neighborhood support as well as public and private resources to extend revitalization beyond a single project.
Since our beginning in 1991, we have provided more than 600 housing units, primarily multi-family, by renovation of substandard housing or new construction to create quality, affordable housing.
Family Residential Development
Mt. Cleveland Heights and Townhomes
Community Builders of Kansas City secured more than $11.6 million in funding to create a safe and inviting duplex community for low-income families in 1999. Mount Cleveland Heights, located at 53rd and Cleveland, features 70 bungalow style duplexes with nostalgic front porches and enjoys nearby public transportation.
Located adjacent to the Mt. Cleveland Initiative Campus at the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and 51st Street, Mt. Cleveland Townhomes is a 10-unit low–income, multi–family development that was constructed to complement Mt. Cleveland Heights in 2006 through a $1.8 million investment.
Ridgeview Heights, a 192-unit multi-family housing community, completed a $14.7 million facelift in 2002. Community Builders of Kansas City assembled both public and private partners to redevelop the formerly blighted property and introduced a crime prevention program with resident support activities.
Located adjacent to Bruce R. Watkins Drive at 37th and Euclid, Ivanhoe Gardens is an 80-unit multi-family rehabilitation development that was transformed and updated through a $9 million investment in 2006.
In partnership with Neighborhood Housing Services, Community Builders of Kansas City developed Parkway Apartments at 41st Street and Paseo in 2007. Forty units of multi-family rental housing were constructed through an investment of nearly $9 million, enhancing the revitalization efforts along Paseo Boulevard.
