Overland Park moves forward with plan for apartments at Metcalf and I-435

Metcalf 108

The Overland Park City Council has approved an updated proposal for apartments in place of an office building for the Metcalf 108 project at I-435 and Metcalf, but there may not be enough votes on the council to approve a tax increment financing package at a later date. File photo.

A change in plans that would replace an office building with apartments at Interstate 435 and Metcalf Avenue got the Overland Park City Council’s approval in principal Monday night.

But the council’s split vote signals a future challenge for the developer in locking down a tax incentive agreement.
