The South Kansas City Alliance on Saturday continued its championship of the growth potential in a part of the city that is seeing a surge in office and retail development.

The nonprofit alliance invited builders, remodelers, real estate brokers and other businesses to a six-hour, “one-stop-shop” at Avila University to focus on resources and opportunities associated with development of the Cerner Corp. campus and other commercial projects.

In addition to the Cerner offices, developments recently completed or under way include an expanded headquarters for Burns & McDonnell and updating or expansion to shopping centers at Ward Parkway, Red Bridge and Truman’s Marketplace.

Goals include the redevelopment of existing housing stock and construction of new single-family homes, townhomes and apartments.
