Business Beat: Columbia housing development, basebell's effect on local business

Annie Rice and Ross Terrell

There are many opinions on whether Columbia is overbuilt or not. KBIA’s Lauren Langille spoke with the city and professionals in the housing and real estate industry to see what’s going on with supply and demand.

Both the Kansas City Royals and St. Louis Cardinals made it into baseball’s post-season this year. And while fans are happy, businesses that sell licensed team shirts, hats and even socks are happier. KBIA’s Annie Rice reports on how postseason runs – and a few bandwagon fans – can be a home run for local businesses.

NOTE: A previous version of this story stated that "the number of housing units on (the MU) campus dropped by nearly 25% when the University tore down the University Village apartments." This is innacurate. The demolition of the University Village apartments only resulted in a loss of 113 apartment units, which combined with other adjustments only amounted to a 2.26% decrease in housing units between 2013 and 2014.
