#KCCornerstone Finalist: Corrigan Station

In Cornerstone Awards by EDCKC Staff

Corrigan Station
1828 Walnut
Kansas City, MO 64109

The historic Thomas Corrigan Building built in 1921 has been renovated into the new “Corrigan Station,” a mixed-use development located on Main Street along Kansas City’s streetcar line. For the past 40 years, the old building was under-occupied and fell into disrepair. In 2013, Copaken Brooks and 3D Development purchased the building with the goal of redeveloping it into a building full of energy, passion, and creativity.

Helix Architecture + Design and Rosin Preservation worked closely with Copaken Brooks and 3D Development to create a design that preserves the historic character of the building, while still providing open, collaborative and creative workspaces.

The first phase included two ground-level restaurant spaces, nine stories of office space, basement and rooftop amenity spaces, and a four-story parking garage with a 2,500-square-foot retail space. An event space was added on the rooftop to serve building tenants and host special events. The addition of the adjacent parking garage not only serves as an amenity for the building tenants but also for guests and visitors to the Crossroads Arts District.

When fully occupied, the Corrigan Station project is expected to add nearly 750 jobs to the area. It is the largest office project completed downtown in nearly a quarter century.
