Neighborhood Revival
Paseo Gateway's Choice Neighborhoods
by Sarah Cousineau
Some exciting housing projects are happening in the Northeast, right around our main branch on Independence Avenue - it’s all part of the Paseo Gateway Choice Neighborhoods Project. In September of 2015, the KC Housing Authority and the KC municipal government were awarded a $30 million federal housing grant. The grant was designed to replace Chouteau Courts, but also to transform the surrounding area in what’s now being called the Paseo Gateway district (includes Pendleton Heights and portions of Independence Plaza and Paseo West neighborhoods).
