High-Technology Business Park
At its core, the Grove at Lee’s Summit is a major undertaking that will reap massive benefits for the people of the area and businesses from near and far. Combining a vast, technologically connected and powered one million square foot business park perfectly suited for high-tech businesses with convenient shopping, dining and entertainment experiences unlike any available in the Kansas City area, the Grove promises to set new standards for mixed-use developments around the country.
This development is expected to draw massive interest and a lot of new jobs as tech entrepreneurs, startup, and existing businesses locate in this tech-friendly project. Nearby, Kansas City is burgeoning with tech companies since the state of Missouri began offering economic incentives for these types of businesses to relocate to the area, so the time is right to add a massive technology corridor for the region.
Recent innovations at the state level have also given rise to additional local initiatives in the form of LaunchKC, which offers grants to new companies and to companies emigrating to the area, and has been key in causing a major influx of technology companies from around the country. The economic incentives and the super-charged environment offer young businesses opportunity, innovation and support unlike any they’ve seen before.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon mentioned the Kansas City area recently, saying it “is a big reason why Missouri is a nationally recognized leader in high-tech jobs and innovation.” He also pointed out that the area “offers a unique combination of a skilled talent pool along with a central location.” Those two points make it a great place to anchor any business or expansion, and the perfect area from which to serve customers around the country.
