Drake Development has begun work on a 70-acre, $180 million mixed-use project near Kansas City, Mo., dubbed Streets of West Pryor. When completed, the development will include a 63,000-square-foot McKeever’s Market grocery store, more than 220 luxury units, a 165-key hotel and roughly 160 age-restricted units. Additionally, national and local retail stores and restaurants are also part of the project.

Located at the intersection of Interstate 470 and NW Pryor Road, Streets of West Pryor will be built on one of the last large infill sites in the Kansas City metro area. The project combines 13 parcels previously owned by eight different owners. Developed by Pearl Cos., the community is set to include underground structured parking, a pool, a fitness center and multiple courtyards.

Streets of West Pryor will also incorporate the adjacent Lowenstein Park into its design as green space. The project is expected to be delivered by the summer of 2020.

Mixed-use developments are transforming many suburban areas in the Midwest,  bringing an urban feel to the suburbs. One North, which is adjacent to established neighborhoods in the city’s historic Northeast, is a similar project. Another example of suburban urbanism is CityPlace, a mixed-use development in a suburban corridor in central Overland Park.
