It has been the most positive impact on our city, its livability and our economy. David Cordish and his colleagues deliver exactly what they promise, they understand cities and their redevelopment efforts are always successful, and achieve the community goals of revitalization and re-energizing the cities downtown.

We are continuing to undergo extensive urban development and look to the success of the Bayou Place public-private partnership as a model for future projects. The effort that you [Cordish] put into the Bayou Place project and its resulting fulfillment has earned you the respect of us all.
Lee P. Brown Mayor of Houston
We are grateful to The Cordish Companies, one of the world's leading real estate developers, for redefining our downtown with the establishment of the Kansas City Power & Light District. We applaud their core values of quality, entrepreneurial spirit, long-term personal relationships and integrity.
Kansas City AdHoc Group
As a catalyst development the Power & Light District not only initiated the turn-around of the south loop of Downtown, but it also re-established Downtown as the premier location to live, work and play. Without a doubt the Power & Light District has proved to be a catalyst for addition investment; it provided a renewed sense of optimism within the city. Our Downtown economic research supports the fact that at no other time in its history has Downtown Kansas City experienced such significant re-development.
Bill Dietrich President & CEO of the Downtown Council of Kansas City
The success of The Cordish Company and the Power & Light District in meeting and exceeding MBE/WBE goals, in addition to todays announced communications initiative, demonstrates how a public/private partnership can create wide reaching and inclusive results.
Kay Barnes Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri
The Historic Kansas City Foundation extends its thanks and appreciation to The Cordish Company for their investment in the Midland Theatre located at 1228 Main Street. The revitalization of the Midland is a great example of how historic preservation is a valuable community resource and that historic architecture works for all of us.
Michael Schaadt President of Historic Kansas City Foundation
Fourth Street Live! is a powerful magnet that is drawing millions of people and dollars to the heart of our City. But our investment is just beginning to pay even greater dividends-Fourth Street Live! is spawning nearby developments that will bring tens of millions of dollars in private investment to fuel the downtown renaissance and our local economy.
Jerry Abramson Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky
