Our Story

How The Crosswalks Came to be

Tree-lined and traversed

Armour Boulevard is home to some of Kansas City’s most beautiful and stately historic architecture and is integrated into the long-standing residential communities that it runs through.

Troost Avenue, a vital artery for Kansas City, has been a vibrant commercial thoroughfare with bustling local shops, restaurants, and markets. They are two streets with distinct characters that meet at a very special point: The intersection of Armour Blvd. and Troost Ave. also marks the coming together of four different neighborhoods. Though Troost has long been regarded as a dividing line in the city, at its vacant intersection with Armour was the opportunity to strengthen connections- across two streets, between four neighborhoods, and with the rest of Kansas City. The Crosswalks, bringing homes, businesses, and renewed activity, will further activate this unique intersection once again.

The Design

The design of The Crosswalks was shaped by the desire to foster interaction,

as well as relate to the historic characters of the streets that it connects.

Each building is L-shaped with an open plaza at the corner that embraces the intersection. These open areas face each other and will have seating and landscaping to add beauty and enliven the streetscape, as well as provide outdoor spaces for interaction. All of the main residential entrances face the quieter, more private Armour Boulevard side, while retail entrances engage with the more bustling activity of Troost Avenue. Just as Armour Blvd. is admired for its historic aesthetic, so is Troost for its vibrant, creative, and progressive streetscape. The Crosswalks’ exterior design combines a more traditional color and material palette on Armour with bolder, more modern gestures along Troost.
