Kansas City, Missouri — November 3, 2022 — Hunt Midwest has opened a new office in the Crossroads Arts District after acquiring a 50% interest in the Corrigan Station II office building from a partnership controlled by Copaken Brooks. The new space expands Hunt Midwest’s footprint to accommodate continued growth and increases its visibility in the community.
The premier Kansas City real estate development company’s newest office is designed to create an open, collaborative workspace for its team members. The 13,173-square-foot space located at 1881 Main Street is in addition to Hunt Midwest’s office space at SubTropolis, the World’s Largest Underground Business Park. The company will celebrate its Crossroads office grand opening with a ribbon cutting and open house from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, November 7th. Members of the media are invited to attend.
“We are thrilled to have a vibrant presence in the heart of Kansas City,” said Ora Reynolds, President and CEO of Hunt Midwest. “With such deep roots in the metro area, it only made sense that our second office would be in the City’s hub, on Main Street. The location increases our brand awareness, our ability to attract the best talent, our proximity to our many business partners, and furthers our investment in the community. We also chose the location because of its proximity to the Kansas City streetcar line so team members can easily take advantage of downtown amenities.”
The Crossroads office features a classic, timeless design inspired by the sleek, clean lines prominent in mid-century design. The space includes an abundance of natural light, warm wood tones, and outdoor space. H2B Architects, Hunt Midwest’s design partner, incorporated exposed structural steel and polished concrete floors as design elements, paying homage to Hunt Midwest’s industrial roots.
“The space very much reflects the way our team members work together and how we work within the Kansas City community,” said Justin White, Senior Director of Operations at Hunt Midwest. “It is collaborative, innovative, and forward-looking. And it provides the runway we need as we continue to grow.”
The new office is part of a broader Hunt Midwest initiative to re-imagine its brand. The company recently unveiled a new logo that more accurately reflects the company’s history. The symbol represents Hunt Midwest’s experience developing real estate both above ground and underground as well as its three-pronged approach to business: Reputation, resources, and relationships.
The symbol may also appear as the abstract shape of a house, the corner of a tilt-up constructed industrial building, or a stylized arrow signifying the company’s forward-looking business model.
Hunt Midwest continues to grow in Kansas City with new plans for the KCI 29 Logistics Park mega site adjacent to the KCI airport, the company’s first Kansas industrial building in Shawnee, the opening of new phases in the single-family communities of Cadence and Hook Farms, and the continued expansion of the self-storage brand StorTropolis. The company also is growing significantly in the southeastern regions of the country, including Greenville, Spartanburg and Charleston, South Carolina; Louisville, Kentucky; and central Florida. Hunt Midwest currently has over 2 million square feet of industrial space under construction nationwide.
Project partners include H2B Architects, Inc. for design, Meyer Brothers Building Company as the general contractor, Encompas for workplace furniture and solutions, and Copaken Brooks for leasing and property management of Corrigan Station II.
