2018 Transit Advocate of the Year: Linden Street Partners

L to R: KCRTA Chairman David Johnson presents Linden Street Partners principals Andrew Ganahl and Scott Richardson with the Transit Advocate of the Year Award for their work on transit-oriented development.

Leaders in building projects that are oriented around transit, Linden Street Partners’ 1914 Main building was one of the first to break ground on the new streetcar line. A visionary project, it opened two months before the streetcar carried its first passenger.

This $8 million development replaced a surface parking lot and was the first new residential construction in the Crossroads in at least 20 years. Because its location in a walkable and transit-rich location gives tenants cost-saving options, it was built with only 27 parking spaces.

Development design from the ground up with transit in mind will have a huge role in building the efficacy of our city’s transit system. KCRTA was proud to recognize the role of Linden Street Partners in moving this vision forward.
