City Center boom continues in Lenexa with approval of The Lofts mixed-used project

Developers say they hope to break ground on the project in March 2019 and finish in spring 2020.

The Lenexa City Council has unanimously approved a development agreement for an estimated $16 million mixed-use project called The Lofts at the southeast corner of 87th Street Parkway and Renner Boulevard in Lenexa City Center East Village.

The project will sit on roughly 1.1 acres and is planned to comprise a five-story, horseshoe-shaped building with about 10,000 square feet of office space on the first floor and 67 apartments on the second through fifth floors, and a two-level parking garage. The council approved the development agreement at its Tuesday meeting. Ward 4 Councilwoman Mandy Stuke was absent.

The council had unanimously approved the project’s preliminary plan at its Aug. 21 meeting.
