Construction Projects are Blooming in Kansas City

Just as flowers are blooming with the onset of Spring, the Commercial Real Estate market continues to show signs of recovery with new building projects. Kansas City is no exception and Block Real Estate Services (BRES) is excited to share some of the projects that are springing up in the city...

Block Construction Services (BCS) has been hard at work and was involved in the management of 40 tenant improvement projects totaling approximately $5,900,000 of construction volume during the month of April in addition to preparing bids for 25 new projects.

Our development team continues to be actively involved in obtaining city approvals for several development projects and assisted in obtaining approvals for two new projects in the Lenexa area:

  • A 552 unit Multi-Family project The Lenexa City Council approved this $50 million high-end rental project in April. This project, called The Residences at City Center, has plans that call for 552 units on 28 acres, along with “a substantial amenity package” of pools and clubhouses. Read more in the Kansas City Business Journal. 
  • A 10 Building Industrial/Distribution complex
    This 120-acre Lenexa Logistics Center will have 170,000- to 260,000-square-foot range distribution range buildings along with five smaller office and distribution buildings. Read more in the Kansas City Star. 
During April, work also continued on these projects -

Block Construction Services is working to keep these projects on schedule and contribute to the blooming construction and development in Kansas City.
