Aptly named, the Gateway District provides the entry experience into Olathe from Kansas City. The site is adjacent to Interstate Highway 35 and 119th Street at one of the highest traffic volume intersections in the region, and is an area that will eventually provide a major transit node for the community. The Gateway District is a critical component in the overall image of Olathe, and development in this area should protect and enhance the image of the community and create an inviting environment to welcome travelers and visitors. High quality retail, services, offices and housing are the focus of this District. Superior design compatibility within the Gateway District can be achieved through consideration of building scale, design, proportions, site planning, landscaping, materials and colors.
