Kansas City, MO (August 14, 2023) — Newmark Zimmer has been selected to assist Suburban Land Reserve, Inc. (“SLR”) in the disposition of approximately 1,800 acres in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, one of the fastest growing cities in the Kansas City Metropolitan area and the state of Missouri. The project accounts for approximately 16% of the undeveloped land in Lee’s Summit. The property is master-planned for multiple uses including single-family homes, multifamily, office, retail and light industrial development.
Available for the first time, the opportunity will allow for the continued growth of Lee’s Summit which has seen its population increase over 45% since 2000.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to work closely with SLR on this very important project.” said Michael VanBuskirk, Vice Chairman, Principal, with Newmark Zimmer. “As a longtime Lee’s Summit resident, I know the importance that the carefully planned development of this property will be to the continued economic growth and vitality of our great community.” The project is divided into 1,000 +/- acres located in south Lee’s Summit along Pryor Road and 800 +/- acres in north Lee’s Summit along I-470. While the combined offering is one of the largest active land listings in the Midwest, the property will be offered in parcels from 20 to 300-plus acres depending upon use.
“We look forward to continuing to work with SLR and their team to bring about the thoughtful and strategic development of these very important land assets,” said Lee’s Summit Mayor Bill Baird. The Newmark Zimmer Midwest Capital Markets team composed of Michael VanBuskirk, Chris Robertson and Raegen Root will represent SLR.
Other Kansas City based team members assisting SLR with the project include Curt Peterson with the Polsinelli law firm and Phil Gibbs, Sr. with Continental Consulting Engineers.
