North Kansas City is developing yet another entertainment and food hotspot with the Iron District, a cluster of businesses at East 16th Avenue and Iron Street in the heart of the city’s former industrial community.
The Iron District was once a gravel parking area, but developers envisioned an incubator for local, small businesses as they start out and work to grow their organizations. The district uses old shipping containers and transforms them into small businesses, including food shops and more. The region officially opened with six businesses in late October, after two years of planning and building.
The district will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. It is closed on Sundays. Individual businesses may set their own hours within those times.
