On February 13th, Jason Swords, Principal of Sunflower Development Group (pictured below), invited the community and those involved in Blenheim Elementary School’s revitalization to celebrate the building’s new lease on life. Rosemann’s Edward English, AJ Dolph, Daniel Nagati and Scott Rosemann attended the Grand Opening.
The historic Blenheim School at 2411 E. 70th Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64132 was built between 1924 and 1930 and provided cutting-edge educational facilities to the surrounding neighborhood. Following its closure in 2009, the structure experienced flooding, fire and vandalism.
Blenheim’s recent rehabilitation was made possible by an outstanding team of professionals including Sunflower Development Group, Rau Construction Company, Rosemann & Associates, P.C., BC Engineers, Hoss & Brown Engineers, Shaw Electric Company, Taliaferro & Brown Inc, and Rosin Preservation. The team’s work returned the shuttered building to life, restoring the façade and the auditorium and incorporating unique historic features into an affordable housing community of 52 studio, 1 and 2-bedroom apartments for seniors (55+).
Amenities include a fitness room, laundry facilities, business center, community meeting space with kitchen, and movie theater. After nearly a decade of blight, Blenheim School Apartments is once again an asset to the surrounding neighborhood.
Congratulations to Rosemann’s Kansas City office on the completion of another amazing senior living project!
