Riverfront takes another step to becoming less hobo-o-rific

KC’s riverfront aspires for more than van dwellings.

Kansas City, Missouri, used to stash its disasters on the riverfront. Supposedly the rubble from the Hyatt skywalk collapse, the Kemper Arena roof cave-in and the Wayne Miner housing project all wound up in the dump situated between the Heart of America and Paseo bridges.

The rubble’s been hauled away as part of the long and expensive process of making the riverfront suitable for more than just hobos and trash-diving birds. But one crucial step remains: Find somebody in the private sector who wants 55 acres with sweet waterfront views.
