Corrigan Station was honored with a Capstone award last night by the Kansas City Business Journal. Several hundred people turned out at the reception hosted by Populous Architects to recognize the honorees.
One of the tallest buildings in the Crossroads Arts District, the ten story Corrigan building at 1828 Walnut is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and was initially completed in 1921. The 123,000sf concrete frame building was built by Thomas E. Corrigan, who pioneered a mule drawn streetcar line back in the 1880s because Kansas City’s roads were in such terrible shape. Originally built for the U.S. Post Office, it was also home to the Nelly Don dress manufacturing company, offices for the Veterans Administration and other miscellaneous office and distribution companies over its 95 year life.
Now the completely renovated Corrigan Station is home for Hollis + Miller Architects, Holmes Murphy Insurance, WeWork co-working space and opening soon, Corvino Supper Club and The Roasterie. The Corrigan also features one of the coolest rooftop amenity spaces in the city complete with pool tables.
