New River Market Project to Feature Nature’s Own, Structurflex


by


A new mixed-use development in River Market is going to make room for two Kansas City companies to grow.

Chris Sally and Iconic Development are redeveloping a building at 414 Oak St.—what used to be part of the Schlitz Brewery—into office and retail space. Nature’s Own Health Food Market will locate its second grocery there, and Structurflex, which sells tensile canopies and membranes, will triple their office space here.

Business leaders credited the nearby streetcar line for helping encourage development in the area.

“The success of the streetcar continues to have impact on the development in River Market. The explosion of apartment and new residences has created a need for neighborhood services and boutique office development,” said Sean O’Byrne, vice president of Business Development for the Downtown Council of Kansas City.

Structurflex is creating three jobs and making a $180,000 investment, so it has qualified for economic incentives through the Missouri Department of Economic Development’s Missouri Works Program.

Sally has been part of four development projects in the River Market neighborhood.
