Construction has begun on tiny houses at several St. Louis-area schools where they are debuting a “Geometry in Construction” course this year. This tiny house project is inspired not only by the increased popularity of small dwellings but more importantly by the alternative movement to fill a gap in transitional housing for the homeless.

This contemporary 30-unit mixed income development in the Paseo Gateway neighborhood on Kansas City's east side is a gut rehab of an aging and partially vacant property. Its eye-catching makeover brings many positive components to the neighborhood with a new exterior design, secure and off-street parking & intercom entry system, bike racks, landscaped courtyard, private balconies, Energy Star appliances, and on-site management. Pendleton Flats is conveniently located near transportation, parks, cultural institutions, and job centers.
Rosemann & Associates, P.C. was excited to provide the architecture and design services for this beautiful renovation. Chicago-based owner Brinshore Development, LLC., collaborated with 4-Sight Construction and the support of local partners including the Housing Authority of Kansas City, Affordable Housing of Kansas City, Inc., Kansas City, Missouri, United Way, and Local Initiatives Support Corporation to complete this project. Financing involved tax credits from the Missouri Housing Development Commission and a HUD Choice Neighborhood grant.
This $4.5 million transformation is the second phase of the Paseo Gateway revitilization effort. In the next year, Brinshore and the Housing Authority of Kansas City will launch three additional replacement housing projects in the Paseo Gateway Choice area. The development was designed and constructed to comply with the Enterprise Green Communities Certification 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.”
