On June 27, at 8:30 pm CST, HGTV's House Hunters will be showing an episode in Kansas City. The episode will center around a 24 year old nurse who is seeking to move out of her parents' 7000 square foot historical home (um, wow) and is seeking to buy a traditional-style condo in the trendy parts of Kansas City.
It should be an interesting show -- as it shows a young professional (the type that is very interested in out downtown renaissance) looking for condos -- which fits right into the advertising campaign living in downtown KC has been doing.
It will be interesting to see what neighborhoods pop up (River Market, Downtown, Plaza), and what issues end up being problems (crime, public transit, parking?) and what good things are mentioned (entertainment?).
Thanks to the Hyde Park neighborhood email list for the tip.
