Yaeger Architecture was the design manager, architect-of-record and interior designer for the redevelopment of the abandoned McCarren Millinery Company and Hershberger & Rosenthal Company Buildings in downtown Kansas City. These 5-story and 3-story historic buildings are contributing properties to the Kansas City registered Wholesale (otherwise known as Garment) District.
The Project consists of the adaptive renovation of the two historic buildings into a combined single-use, multi-family market-rate apartment complex totaling 61,600 gross square feet. It contains 44 apartment units: 22 one-bedroom units and 22 two-bedroom units. The existing neighboring parcel at 917 Broadway is a part of the project and remains on-grade parking with the addition of a new mansard “eye-brow” style carport with controlled perimeter fencing.
