Built 1917 | former Sweeney School
Historic Renovation & Adaptive Reuse to Residential Apartments and Commercial Space
Constructed in 1917 as the Sweeney School, this 136,000 square foot, 10 story reinforced concrete building served as a trade school for men teaching how to service tractors, automobiles, and airplanes. In the 1930s, the building was converted into offices for the Businessmen’s Assurance Company and had primarily housed office space prior to this renovation.

The scope of the project included renovating the top five floors into 55 market rate apartments. The lower floors remained commercial office and retail space. Four tenant finish projects were included in the scope of work.

The Pershing Lofts offer 12 unique loft style floor plans, each designed to take advantage of the building’s unparalleled views of downtown Kansas City, Union Station, and the National WWI Memorial. Refined interior finishes strike a balance between the exposed concrete ceilings. Amenities incorporated into the overall scope include an entry lobby and corridor, reception desk, leasing office, and fitness center.
