The 9-story Flashcube Apartments renovation project in Kansas City recently commenced. The existing building has been vacant for more than 12 years and was initially built in the 1970s as an executive office space. Familiarly called “the flashcube” because of its square glass walls, it is also on the National Register of Historic Places. Therefore, Clockwork Architecture + Design, are giving the building a similar look as a nod to its history. Flashcube is located on the streetcar line at the north entrance to the central business district.
LMG has been selected as the plumbing subcontractor under General Contractor MW Builders. The second through ninth floors of the building will house 184 units; the mixed-use first floor will have a leasing office and tenant space for future office and retail. In addition, amenities such as a fitness center and lounge will be in the basement. The building will also have 35,800 SF of commercial space.
