Don Rosemann, Founder and President/CEO of Rosemann & Associates, P.C. attended this year’s National Investment Center (NIC) Conference held in Chicago last week. Over 3,000 leaders in the senior housing and licensed care industry attended, exchanging ideas, identifying trends, sharing research, and networking with owners, operators, financial partners, investors, general contractors, consultants, and brokers.
Rosemann has developed a robust practice in senior living/licensed care with an emphasis on assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing. This conference expands our knowledge, content and involvement to provide our clients with architectural designs that embrace the latest design trends and compliance standards.

Rosemann’s design of St. Michael’s Veterans Center Phase II at 3818 Chelsea Drive in Kansas City, Missouri was the recipient of the Kansas City Economic Development Corporation "Capstone Award 2017" for Community Impact.
The completion of this second phase of St. Michael’s in December 2016 transformed a once abandoned lot into a 49,000 square foot, 4-story apartment building and a resource for hundreds of veterans in need. The affordable apartments feature quality amenities and services including transportation, theater, coffee shoppe, computer lab, and sports lounge, along with space for education and job skill training.
“This is the further development of a piece of land that was underutilized and an eyesore in the neighborhood,” said Edward English, project manager for Rosemann & Associates. “Now, the campus is a growing community for the veterans...We’ve brought life and activity to it.”
Congratulations to Yarco Companies, Inc. and Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph, development team; Landworks Studio, landscape architect; SK Design Group Inc., civil engineer; BGR Consulting Engineers, MEP; 4Sight Construction Group, general contractor; U.S. Bank, financier; and Levy Craig Law Firm PC, law firm for their collaborative work on St. Michael’s, Phase II!
