How is it built?


The mySidewalk platform provides the capability to compare most of the major cities across the United States, so we can augment or modify our reports upon request. In addition to the comparisons of our national peers, we also review Downtown Kansas City in a regional context of the Kansas City MSA. Most importantly, it allows us to highlight the significant progress downtown Kansas City has achieved in our economy, housing, development, and quality of life sectors.
