Plans for further development at Overland Park’s sprawling CityPlace complex took a step forward this week. 

The city council’s Finance, Administration and Economic Development Committee narrowly approved a 50% property tax abatement agreement for a new planned office tower on the 90-acre site that will, in part, serve as more office space for health care technology firm Wellsky.
