Ivanhoe Gateway At 39th Phases I & II Completed

Ivanhoe Ribbon Cutting

Calling it a "great addition to our community," Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. joined other local officials and dignitaries in cutting the ribbon commemorating completion of Phases I & II of the Ivanhoe Gateway at 39th project. 

The Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council launched the project to redevelop the area of 38th to 39th Streets and Bruce R. Watkins to Prospect Avenue in Kansas City. Phases I & II included the construction of affordable housing on the site of what had been the Horace Mann School. The ribbon was cut during a special "It's A Celebration!" ceremony the Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council hosted Monday, June 13. 

According to the Neighborhood Council, Ivanhoe Gateway at 39th will "enhance the perception of the Ivanhoe neighborhood and cause people to look upon Ivanhoe as a good place for good people to live and raise a family." Phase I includes new seven duplexes, while Phase II features 12 one-story cottages. Phase III plans call for the Neighborhood Council to acquire and then rehab vacant or abandoned houses.
