The Leawood City Council on Monday narrowly gave the green light to the East Village project at West 133rd Street and Pawnee Lane.

After months of discussion over the proposed development’s latest version, the city council voted 5-3 to approve final plans for the project’s first two phases. Lenexa-based Oddo Development had initially proposed the project, then called Cameron’s Court, in 2020.
