Listed on the National Register of Historic Places the Creamery Building has regained life through the eyes of Kansas City developer Vince Bryant. The 22,000 square foot building sits at 2100 Central Street in the Freighthouse/Crossroads District and was once home to one of the largest dairy companies in the country when it was built in 1911.
Straub Construction, along with Finkle Williams Architecture, Blackbird Design Studio, Lankford Fendler Associates, and PMA Engineering teamed up to bring this building back to life with LEED Gold standards.
Construction is wrapping up for the Core and Shell portion of the project and tenant improvement work for multiple tenants is under way. SFS Architecture will be the first building tenant to enjoy a great downtown skyline view from the new shared common space penthouse while enjoying a game of pool or even some BBQ at the penthouse patio grill.
The building finishes will be exposed concrete and brick exterior walls with glass walls and steel mixed in throughout. Vince, along with the architects, has a great vision when it comes high end modern furniture and fixtures to finish the spaces off.
Next time you are in the Crossroads for First Friday’s, hopefully you can swing by and check it out. You might want to try out the new first floor restaurant with an outdoor patio!
