Ken Block is arguably the single most influential person in real estate in the Kansas City area. The hard-charging Block is a force in the commercial, industrial and multifamily residential development sectors, from idea to investment to construction to ultimate sale.
A fire at his massive CityPlace project in Overland Park brought an unwelcome spotlight on Block but should be no match for his drive and deep local roots. Look for CityPlace to get back on track and for Block to continue rolling out new projects.
