KCPS sold the former Greenwood site to Missouri Housing Partners (MHP), an affiliate of Fulson Housing Group, on July 28, 2022. A term of sale includes the execution of a Benefits Agreement by KCPS, MHP and the South Round Top Neighborhood Association (SRTNA), which includes the creation of two funds for neighborhood projects and home repairs. The SRTNA is the beneficiary of a grant administrated by LISC that will assist the neighborhood to develop project priorities/guidelines for each of the funds in 2022/2023.
MHP received an allocation of 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) in the Fall 2021 Round and anticipates commencing construction on the 3-story, 49-unit mixed income senior apartment development in April 2023.

KCPS hosted a reuse proposal presentation on Sep 23, 2021 to collect community feedback on MHP’s proposal. MHP also presented its proposal at the 3rd District monthly meeting in September 2021.
On October 6, 2021, KCPS entered into an option agreement with Missouri Housing Partners, LLC (MHP), an affiliate of Fulson Housing Group for the redevelopment of the Greenwood site. MHP was awarded Low Income Housing Tax Credits in December 2021 and exercised its option to purchase in January 2022.
KCPS and SRTNA hosted several community meetings from February – June 2022 to collect neighborhood feedback on desired elements of the Benefits Agreement and the Property Use Restriction Agreement. These Agreements are intended to ensure that the redevelopment benefits KCPS stakeholders/local residents, and is developed in accordance with the proposal that Fulson Housing Group presented to the neighborhood and KCPS last fall.
Demolition of the Greenwood School was complete in Spring 2019. Block Real Estate Services began marketing the cleared site in June 2019.
