KANSAS CITY, MO – The Brookside shopping district and surrounding neighborhoods are a step closer in their quest to preserve the character of the area as it was built by renowned Kansas City developer J.C. Nichols in the early 1900s.

A city council committee, as well as the full council, has heard and approved the plans brought forth by the planning, zoning and economic development committee. These plans call for tighter restrictions in the 10-acre area located two miles south of the Country Club Plaza.

Building tenants will not be allowed to occupy more than 10,000 sf, with the exception of grocery stores, which may be up to 25,000 sf. Parking restrictions will also be put into place as well as design standards.
