Urban Living at its finest featuring a Streetside Pool and Green Standards
O’Reilly Development led a historic redevelopment in the Garment District of Downtown Kansas City with the June 2013 acquisition of the historic Folgers Coffee Company factory. The purchase consisted of two separate buildings and an adjoining open parking lot. Folgers Coffee Company previously occupied and owned the buildings but vacated in 2012. The project utilized federal and state historic credits associated with the historic preservation and adaptive reuse plans for the buildings.
Plans resulted in redeveloping the property into Class A market rate rental loft-style apartments with a mix of studio, one-, two- and 3-bedroom units with great views. The project provided the best of market rate amenities featuring where once an old, non-historic mechanical tower was razed and replaced with a courtyard created between the two buildings with a swimming pool, barbecue grills and landscaping.
