Cerner workers polled for vision of south Kansas City

Cerner says the south Kansas City campus now under construction eventually will house 16,000 workers. The first two office towers are expected to be ready for occupancy by about 3,500 workers in early 2017.

The South Kansas City Alliance, with the cooperation of Cerner Corp., asked Cerner employees what kinds of retail services or housing options they’d like to see around the company’s new office campus at Interstate 435 and 87th Street.

The results are to be shared June 14, when the alliance is inviting potential developers to a 7:30 a.m. meeting at Canaan Worship Center, 5333 Bannister Road.

Stacey Johnson-Cosby, president of the alliance, said the group hopes the survey results will be a road map to help developers predict what kinds of development will be most successful.
