Kansas Ave Lofts Progress!
The old windows have been removed and trim installed to make way for new. It's tough to fathom scale in these photos, but the amount of natural light and magnificent size of these windows is just AMAZING...perfect to check out the sweeping panoramic views of all the exciting changes happening in downtown Topeka!
Clean up on the original entry has exposed the vintage details of the column and arch work over the doorway. In the interior of the new residential units, the original masonry walls will be partially furred out to provide insulation at eye level while leaving the gorgeous character of the original brick exposed above. The first floor partial demolition makes room for a temporary construction ramp to the lower level, and a dynamic canvas for sunlight and shadows to play on. This floor opening will remain after construction is complete to provide generous natural light for the lower indoor parking level.
Located at 101 N Kansas Avenue, or on the NW corner of 1st and Kansas Avenue, in historic Downtown Topeka, the 33 market-rate lofts of this project will be a much needed boost for the growing demand for quality, modern living options in this area! The coming weeks will continue to offer many more noticeable changes, so you wont want to pass up an opportunity to take another drive-by! Our team at Architect One is proud to be a part of this great historic renovation project!
