Progress continues on Epoch Development's renovation project at 518-520 S. Commerce in Downtown Wichita. The newly named 520Commerce will be a mixed-use property in the Commerce Arts District, and will include 24 one and two bedroom lofts that feature original wood or polished concrete floors, large windows, exposed brick walls, timber posts/beams, and original signage. Development plans include updating existing unique architectural components for modern use, including the adaptive reuse of freight elevators into a passenger elevator, and the original loading docks will be modified into patios for first floor tenants. The exterior design of 520Commerce will promote connectivity with neighboring buildings and increased foot traffic for Final Friday.
The redevelopment will also include three commercial spaces and a dozen work studios/makerspaces. 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.
