How would you like to purchase the vacant lot next door to you to increase the size of your yard, plant a garden, or create a nice parking space for your car? Sound good? As an incentive to improve Kansas City neighborhoods, the Land Bank offers special pricing for situations just like that. To qualify for the side lot program, you must own AND occupy an abutting property.
$1.00 side lots Any Land Bank property that is smaller than 2,500 square feet may be purchased for $1.00. These small pieces of land have, for various reasons, been separated from the main parcel. Many are landlocked and do not have street frontage. Our goal is to get these forgotten parcels incorporated into the main parcel again.
$75.00 side lots Vacant lots that are between 2,500 and 6,000 square feet may be purchased for $75.00 through the side lot program.
Other Pricing Vacant lots that are between 6,000 and 6,500 square feet can be purchased for 8¢ per square foot. For example, a 6,500-square-foot lot may be purchased for $520.
