Pendleton Flats lifts housing options for Paseo Gateway

The $4.5 million Pendleton Flats apartment community officially opened on Wednesday, adding 30 modern, amenity-rich apartment units at affordable rent rates in the Paseo Gateway neighborhood on Kansas City's east side.

“The development itself is a gorgeous turnaround for a formerly partially vacant, blighted apartment complex in Pendleton Heights,” said Brinshore Development LLC President David Brint. “Pendleton Flats has excellent access to job centers, transportation, cultural institutions, parks and amazing housing stock within a stone’s throw of downtown.”

The three-building complex at 555 Olive St. replaces the former crime-ridden Brooklyn Heights complex and represents a safe, family-friendly housing option with amenities such as on-site management, bike racks, an intercom entry system, central AC, private balconies, in-unit washer/dryer, dishwasher, secure and off-street parking and Energy Star appliances. 

Chicago-based Brinshore Development served as master developer, with support from 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 (LISC)4Sight Construction Group served as general contractor, and Rosemann & Associates PC provided consulting services.

Pendleton Flats is the first project associated with a $30M federal housing grant received by the City of Kansas City, Missouri in 2015. Brinshore and HAKC will break ground over the next year on three additional replacement housing projects in the Paseo Gateway neighborhood, which covers almost one-square mile and includes approximately 4,800 residents. 

Local dignitaries such as City Manager Troy Schulte, and Kansas City councilmen Quinton Lucas, Jermaine Reed and Scott Wagner attended the grand opening, as well as Housing Authority Kansas City leaders Donovan Mouton and Ed Lowndes.

The development was designed and constructed to comply with the Enterprise Green Communities Certification standards, which aim to help improve health, economic and environmental benefits to residents.

 

Developers and local dignitaries celebrated the opening of the Pendleton Flats apartment complex in the Paseo Gateway neighborhood on Oct. 25.
