Kansas City grabbed a sneak peek inside the historic 10-story Corrigan Building on Thursday as the structure prepared to open.
This is part of the Corrigan Station project and the first Crossroads Arts District redevelopment since the announcement of the Kansas City streetcar. Its 1828 Walnut St. address means the renovated first floor offers retail space just a half block from the streetcar line.
Already, the upper floors of the 110,000-square-foot building, circa 1921, were cleared for occupancy, and architectural firm Hollis + Miller began to move in.
The Roasterie plans to open a cafe in March to seat about 50 and offer covered patio seating.
A project of Copaken Brooks and 3D Development, Corrigan Station includes a four-story parking garage that opened earlier this month and is available in the evenings.
The Corrigan Station developers also have plans to build a new, 35,000-square-foot addition immediately west of the renovated Corrigan Building.
