The developers of Corrigan Station plan to break ground by December on an $11 million office building at 19th and Main streets along the streetcar route.
It would occupy a lot immediately west of the historic 10-story Corrigan Station redevelopment project that opened last December at 18th and Walnut.
“We’re working on leasing and hope we can break ground this year, we’re trying for a start in December,” Copaken said.
Copaken said the 110,000 square foot Corrigan Station property is occupied except for one floor. Major office tenants include WeWork, Holmes Murphy & Associates and Hollis + Miller. First floor retail tenants include the Roasterie and Corvino Supper Club.
That $41 million renovation project was the first new Class A office space to open downtown since the 1201 Walnut building in 1991.
The co-developer is Vince Bryant of 3D Development. Bryant also recently purchased the historic Kansas City Star building at 17th and Grand, and plans to redevelop that property into a potential premium office project.
The new phase-two Corrigan Station project will include limited covered parking for 19 cars. It’s located next to the Crossroads streetcar station.
Copaken said it should take about nine months to complete the new building, which currently is being called the 19th and Main building. It was designed by Helix Architecture + Design.
