Hunt Midwest is locating a satellite office in downtown and will occupy the second floor of the Corrigan Station II building at 19th and Main next to a streetcar stop.
The commercial real estate firm, which has its primary offices in SubTropolis, is the second major tenant landed in the three-story office building that opened in 2019. Academy Bank occupies the first floor.
“As one of the best located office buildings in the Crossroads with direct access to the streetcar and nearby amenities, we know Corrigan II is the perfect location for our satellite office,” Ora Reynolds, president and CEO of Hunt Midwest, said in a statement.
“We are excited to partner with the owners in this historic move for our company.”
The $11 million Corrigan Station II building was built adjoining Corrigan Station, a historic renovation project completed in 2016 that reintroduced substantial, Class A office space in the Crossroads.
Both office projects were developed by Copaken Brooks and 3D Development. Corrigan Station II is the first new office building developed in the Crossroads in recent decades.
“We’re very excited about having Hunt Midwest as part of this venture,” Copaken Brooks Principal Jon Copaken said in a statement. “Hunt Midwest’s confidence in the market and the building is a great validation of the success of downtown.”
The new Hunt Midwest space can support over 40 employees. It will provide options for corporate services team members to work from downtown based on daily workload. Building permits issued by the city indicate the second floor build-out cost is $1.16 million.
The streetcar stop location was described as an important draw.
“The streetcar enables tenants to easily access the River Market and Union Station–with further connectivity currently being added through route expansion in both directions,” according to a release announcing the deal.
The third floor of the 23,000 square-foot Corrigan Station II feature seven individual office spaces with a shared kitchenette, conference space and common areas, as well as open terraces that offer views of downtown and the Kauffman Performing Arts Center.
Copaken Brooks, the landlord broker, was represented by agents John Coe and Ryan Biery while Hunt Midwest was represented by their management team.
