New apartments are coming in old Garment District warehouse

We are excited to see that Lucas Place Lofts is nearly finished! Love Funding provided $20.5 million in financing to convert this historic building into market-rate lofts. Check out this article published in the Kansas City Star

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.
