The newly named 520Commerce is a mixed-use property in the Commerce Street Arts District, and includes 24 one and two bedroom lofts that feature original wood or polished concrete floors, large windows, exposed brick walls, timber posts/beams, and original signage. The existing unique architectural components have been updated for modern use, including the adaptive reuse of freight elevators into a passenger elevator, and the original loading docks have been modified into patios for first floor tenants. The exterior design of 520Commerce promotes connectivity with neighboring buildings and increased foot traffic for Final Friday.
The redevelopment also includes three commercial spaces and a dozen work studios/makerspaces. Partners of the renovation project include Kansas City based companies El Dorado Architecture and Pique Co, and Wichita based companies Compton Construction and INTRUST Bank.
The original warehouses, built in the 1930s, were operated by the US Supply Company.
