F&C Helps Gladstone Build a Bustling Downtown

The Heights - LobbyThis weekend, The Heights Linden Square was highlighted by Kansas City Real Estate as a key component of the building of a new downtown in Gladstone, Missouri.

Before the city of Gladstone existed as it does today, it was merely a collection of real estate developments with no real cohesive vision. So when the city became incorporated in 1952, one of its first priorities of its residents was to downtown center – a “community gathering place that would help give us a sense of identity in this city,” says Gladstone City Council member Carol Suter, who spoke to members of KC CREW recently.

The Heights Linden Square, which also incorporates 10,000 square feet of ground-level retail, plans to keep growing and assisting in the development of downtown. Ryan Cronk, Vice President of development at Flaherty & Collins Properties, said the goal is to provide as much quality housing as Gladstone needs. 

“This product will be the best the Northland has to offer. I’d even put it up against some downtown properties as well – and that was the goal of the city when we built this: to provide a first-class stock of living. I’m looking forward to talks after we open next month to do another phase in Gladstone.”
