Catalyst Plan

At next Tuesday's City Council meeting, the Council is expected to select the developer for the "Delano Catalyst Site," the property bundle including the once-promised Delano Park West and the surplus Advance Learning Library property. Kansas City-based EPC Real Estate beat out three other proposals, including one from Delano's own InSite, to win the deal. Here is the summary from the meeting agenda (large PDF!):
