Kansas City’s bustling downtown area is the Central Business District, sandwiched between the River Market neighborhood and the Crossroads Art District. Despite the stodgy name, the Central Business District is packed with entertainment and nightlife options and has recently exploded with young residents hoping to indulge in the big-city lifestyle. To accommodate the population boom, developers have created a host of new high-rise apartment complexes. Also called the Downtown Loop — a handle referring to the ring of freeways that defines the area — the Central Business District is within walking distance of the famous Power and Light District, where crowds flock to enjoy bars, shops, restaurants and more than 100 events each year. If convenience and culture are at the top of your priorities list, the Central Business District should be at the top of your apartment search list.
