Shaul Jolles loves Kansas City. And it shows. . . He knew where he wanted to be: the Crossroads Art District near downtown Kansas City, Mo. The Crossroads is well-known within the Kansas City area as a unique corner of downtown full of boutiques, local restaurants and most of all, a plethora of art galleries. But less than a decade ago, it wasn't nearly as polished as it is today.
Shaul Jolles, co-founder of OfficePort, was awarded this past Friday 12/11/11 with a Downtown Kansas City Urban Heroes Award. Shaul joined several other local business owners including Teri Rogers of T2, Christopher Elbow, Danny O'Neilll of the Roasterie & more.
