We are thrilled to announce that we will be serving as general contractor on this historical rehab in Kansas City, Missouri.
Gotham Apartments, including 103 affordable residential rental units, is located in the 3rd Council District of the City of Kansas City, Missouri.
The project area lies to the north of East Linwood Boulevard. Linwood Boulevard is considered to be one of the “great boulevards” of the city and was once one of the most elegant boulevards. Linwood Boulevard has historically been a high-density residential corridor.
Gotham Apartments is a series of six apartment buildings that were linked together during a rehabilitation project in 1981. The first building was constructed in 1919. It is a four-story brick building, containing 45 efficiency and one-bedroom apartments, plus an office for the property manager. The next building is a two-story brick and frame building constructed in 1925 and contains 10 one-bedroom apartments. Four identical 12-one-bedroom apartment buildings were constructed at 3200-18 E. Linwood Boulevard in 1925. The buildings were constructed of reinforced concrete and brick, and remain intact as one of Kansas City’s best examples of three-story pier-over-pier colonnaded apartment buildings.
We will completely rehabilitate each unit with new kitchens, bathrooms, wall coverings, new flooring, paint, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. We will also be adding meeting space for community gatherings and enrichment services to be provided at the property. Triumph Management Group, LLC will manage this property.
All of the units are funded by a Project-Based Section 8 contract that expires in 2025. The property is currently being registered with the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service; however, Gotham Apartments is currently listed on the Kansas City Register of Historic Places.
The development location is ideally located with services and shopping needs just minutes away from residents’ front doors. A new grocery store-anchored shopping center is under construction just a quarter mile away from the project. Pharmacies, public schools, banking, retail, recreation, and a hospital are all located near the Gotham Apartments.
