This proposal addresses the lack of housing diversity and affordability that makes it challenging for younger generations to live in Lee’s Summit, while supporting residents of all ages, strengthening the identity of the downtown core, and offering new ways of navigating and discovering it. The three chosen sites are connected via a reimagined pedestrian-only alley, and are developed using courtyard concepts that mediate between public and private spaces.
