Profile

Whitney Kerr Sr. has been active in the commercial, industrial and land brokerage business as a broker and developer since 1958. In the 1970s, Whitney brokered the land for 11 office park developments in the I-435/College Boulevard corridor.  The largest was the 293-acre Corporate Woods Office Park, and he was one of the original owner-developers.  In the 1980s, Whitney assembled 23 acres of land in downtown Kansas City in a partnership with H. Ross Perot Jr., and was very instrumental in the subsequent expansion of Bartle Hall over the downtown freeway onto the 23 acres.  Whitney recently completed the 350 acre land assemblage for Oxford on the Blue.  He was also involved in negotiating the sale of 85 acres of the Cerner Innovative Campus at 87th Street and Interstate 35 in Kansas City, Missouri.
