The OxbowKansas City, MO
Rosemann collaborated with Sunflower Development Group, LLC and GSSW Real Estate Investments to design The Oxbox, a 9-story luxury multifamily development on approximately 1.4 acres with 3,500 square feet of first-floor retail located at the Northeast corner of East 18th Avenue and Swift Street in the desirable North Kansas City, MO downtown neighborhood. This project is named for the ‘Oxbow’ bend in the river where North Kansas City is located.
The Oxbow supports the need for additional housing in North Kansas City with 208 total units, including spacious studios, 1- and 2-bedroom layouts, as well as penthouse suites. The project delivers a large community/amenity space on the 9th floor providing a range of uses including a community kitchen, pub space, private work rooms, outdoor pool, and pool deck with unmatched views of downtown.
Construction is Type IB, reduced to IIA. Typical parking garage floor area of 46,900 SF and typical residential floor area of 28,600 SF. Composite floor systems on pre-panelized load-bearing metal stud walls are being utilized. The deck acts as both the permanent form and the positive reinforcing. This system has its own U.L. fire rating (D-938). The ‘bare’ slab is automatically fire rated and an additional fire rated ceiling or spray-on protection is not required. The system can span up to 29 feet. Due to poor soil conditions and proximity to the river, there is a geo-pier foundation and the garage is post-tension, cast-in-place.
