Town Pavilion

Holistic building renovation strategies that use simple, cost-effective materials with durability and timelessness in mind can add a sense of beauty and new life to a dated space, changing how it is perceived, which was the case for an iconic building in Kansas City.



For a new apartment high-rise in the Crossroads District of Kansas City, innovative materials and structural shapes are helping to merge the desire to both blend into the historic area while also standing out among other structures. The 196,000-square-foot final building will also boast a 41,000-square-foot parking garage, adding convenience to an urban setting.
