BUILD June 2017

116 BUILD / June 2017 , As the interview comes to an end, Brad is very keen to share his insights into what the future has in store for the industry, how he sees the market changing and his own aspirations for the firm. “It is likely that we will continue to see significant growth in all market sectors and expect a backlog in 2018 and beyond. BCS plans to strategically grow our staff and seek out new development opportunities, not only in Kansas City but in other markets throughout the Midwest as well. We look forward to providing accurate direction to our partners, institutional and private investors, clients and tenants.” “BCS is leading the planning efforts of an approximate 200- acre mixed-use development located at the intersection of 192nd Street and Dodge Road in Omaha, Nebraska. The project, known as Avenue One, is anticipated to generate an economic impact of over $1.28 billion for the Omaha region and Nebraska. BCS, along with the design team, has been working to provide a comprehensive master site plan that will create a dense and truly mixed-use community. The plan will focus on wellness through walking, hiking and bicycling trails as well as a superb transportation and street plan that continues the walkable community theme with crossable streets, open site lines and a landscaping plan that is second to none. Mass grading efforts are planned to be underway in 2017. “47 Madison Avenue is another exciting project for BCS. 47 Madison is a 15-story multifamily development tower planned for the west side of the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri. Current plans include structured parking with approximately 288 units with an unprecedented amenity package for the Plaza area which will include a roof top terrace. The Plaza is known as an outdoor museum of romantic Spanish architecture and European art. Designed in 1922 as the nation’s first suburban shopping district, the Plaza’s fountains, sculptures and murals bring to the heart of the city the very best of the old world and the new.” Brad Simma is keen to draw our attention to a few more of the firm’s projects including Traders on Grand, a historic redevelopment project located at 1125 Grand Boulevard, in Kansas City, Missouri. He explains more about this in his own words, plus two more fitting examples of the firm’s outstanding work. “The 21-story property will be redeveloped and converted into market-rate residential apartment units (approximately 190-200 units). The basement will be converted to common area/tenant amenity space. The first and second floors will be rehabilitated for commercial use and common area space. The 21st floor that currently houses the building HVAC system will become a pool and amenity area. Construction is slated to begin this year, with first occupancies taking place in mid-2018. “The next multifamily phase of our CityPlace project, a 90- acre mixed use development in Overland Park, Kansas, is The Apex at CityPlace. Construction on The Apex is slated to commence in mid- 2017. The Apex is a Class A multifamily project that will include 36,623 square feet of retail and 408 multifamily units. The development will feature two levels of structured parking, a clubhouse, two amenity area courtyards, swimming pool, spa and many more outdoor activity areas.” “Another part of the CityPlace mixed-use development is CityPlace Parcel VII. This phase of the development will include four stand-alone retail buildings totalling approximately 30,267 square feet. Construction is slated to begin this year.” Completed Projects Size Type Teva Pharmaceutical 154,268 SF Build-to-Suit Office Building Nall Corporate Centre II 150,000 SF Class A Office Building Pinnacle Corporate Centre Campus 500,000 SF Class A Office Building WaterCrest at City Center 306 Units Class A Multi-Family EdgeWater at City Center 276 Units Class A Multi-Family Lenexa Logistics Centre North #1 635,000 SF Class A Distribution Riverside Logistics Centre 245,243 SF Class A Distribution Lenexa Logistics Centre #4 260,000 SF Class A Distribution Lenexa Logistics Centre #5 350,000 SF Class A Distribution Projects Under Construction Size Type WaterSide Residences on Quivira 481 Units Class A Multi-Family The Royale at CityPlace 344 Units Class A Multi-Family 531 Grand 185 Units Class A Multi-Family 10,000 SF Retail Roe Medical Centre 75,000 SF Class A Medical Office Building Pine Ridge Business Park #31 58,000 SF Build-to-Suit Office Building Earth City Industrial 650,000 SF Industrial Lenexa Logistics Centre #7 400,000 SF Industrial Traders on Grand 202 Units Multi-Family 11,000 SF Retail/Commercial Personal Awards & Certifications Awarded by Rising Star Kansas City Business Magazine 40 Under Forty Ingram’s Magazine Certified Commercial Investment Manager (CCIM) CCIM National Institute Project Awards Award Name Awarded By Teva Pharmaceutical Headquarters Capstone Award, Office Building Kansas City Business Journal (KCBJ) Home Run Award CCIM National Institute Design-Build Honor Award Best Commercial Project Over $10 Million Design-Build Institute of America/Mid-America Region College Crossing Business Park Capstone Award, Industrial KCBJ Amazon MC15 Sortation Center at Lenexa Logistics Centre - Building #4 Capstone Award, Industrial KCBJ Lenexa Logistics Centre North - Building #1 Capstone Award, Industrial KCBJ The Royale at CityPlace Capstone Award, Multifamily KCBJ Renner Corporate Centre I LEED for New Construction U.S. Green Building Council Nall Corporate Centre I LEED for Core & Shell U.S. Green Building Council
