Epoch Developments, LLC has begun renovations on a set of buildings at 518-520 S. Commerce in Downtown Wichita. The newly named 520Commerce mixed-use property in the Commerce Arts District will include 22 lofts, work studios and commercial space. Partners of the renovation project include Kansas City based companies, El Dorado Architecture and Pique Co, and Wichita based companies, Compton Construction and INTRUST Bank.
The original warehouses, built in the 1930s, were operated by the US Supply Company. The buildings hold freight elevators, loading docks and skylights from the previous building functions. Developers want to maximize these architectural details with slight alterations for more current use. The freight elevators will become a stairwell and a passenger elevator. The original loading docks will be altered for natural lighting and patios for first floor tenants.
The exterior design of 520Commerce will promote connectivity with neighboring buildings and increased foot traffic for Final Friday.
