Overland Park city council approval paves way for 5-story Edison District project in heart of downtown

A street level view of the five-story office complex approved by the city council Monday.

A congratulatory city council gave its blessing Monday night to a revised Edison development plan that puts a five-story office and retail building and a four-level parking garage in the heart of Overland Park’s downtown.

The council unanimously approved a final development plan for the southwest corner of 80th and Marty Streets, saying they were enthusiastic about the sparkle the development will bring, despite an uptick in traffic.
