A 110-year-old warehouse in Kansas City’s downtown Garment District is reopening as a loft-style apartment project featuring a light sculpture cascading the depth of its eight-story atrium.
The former Burnham-Hanna-Munger Manufacturing Co. building at 323 W. Eighth St. has been transformed into what’s being called Lucas Place Lofts. The first residents of the 130-unit building are expected to begin moving in March 1.
Its New York designers have retained the heavy wood timbers and industrial-style windows of the massive eight-story brick building and added a few contemporary flourishes. Its original use was as a warehouse for jobbers who specialized in wholesale trade and selling to retailers throughout the Great Plains.
“Aesthetically, it’s terrific,” said Jay Landesman, a partner at LandWhite Developers LLC, the Indiana and New York firm behind the $30 million redevelopment. “The atrium is very unusual.”
