Martin City Economic Development Update

The new Cable Dahmer Collision Center Headquarters in Martin City has been named an EDC Cornerstone Award finalist and will be honored at the May 15th reception at Union Station Kansas City.

Cornerstone Award recipients provide significant economic stimulus to the city of Kansas City, Missouri, and our Martin City businesses have made a big impression. Their projects have spurred redevelopment and new construction, creating much-needed jobs in our District.

Past Martin City Cornerstone Award Nominees and Winners:

  • 135th Street Public Improvement Project
  • Bambini Creativi
  • Fishtech
  • Grade A Tree Care
  • Hanger Cleaners
  • Infinite Energy Construction
  • Margarita’s South Restaurant

Martin City has seen an abundance of growth over the past few years and we are proud of all our business owners and community leaders who have worked tirelessly – together – to improve the quality of experiences people have when they visit our District. 

Remember only five years ago, we had no sidewalks in Martin City! Take a look around now and you’ll not only see sidewalks but new streetscape, beautiful hanging baskets, and additional parking along 135th Street.

Jack Stack Barbecue at 135th Street & Holmes Road is starting an extensive remodel in June, and if all goes according to plans, the Martin City Coffeehouse will open in May or June in their brand new 2,100-square-foot facility off Holmes Road. 

The Martin City Animal Hospital on Cherry Street is also planning an expansion, and the O’Reilly auto parts store will break ground in 2019 on a plot in Martin City adjacent to QuikTrip.

We are definitely making progress but our work is far from finished! Over the next year, MCCID hopes to finish the 135th street public improvement project, find new owners and/or tenants for our vacant properties and office spaces, and we will continue to work with local businesses and community leaders to bring the best resources and opportunities to Martin City so we can build on the incredible momentum you’ve all helped us create.

Thank you for supporting the Martin City Community Improvement District!
