Location: Kansas City, Missouri
The Historic Professional Building sits at the corner of 11th Street and Grand Avenue. This project was a complete renovation and restoration of one of Kansas City’s most architecturally intricate buildings. Under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, the upper 15 floors of this 16-story building are converted into 132 for-rent living units. The first floor and arcade level are open for retail and commercial space. With entirely new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, new windows throughout the building, and restored marble and travertine tile lobbies on each floor, this was a tremendous addition to the downtown marketplace. Secure parking, landscaping, and several community gathering spaces, including a roof-top deck, increase the building’s appeal.
