Project Updates and Community Impact

2021 Year in Review | KC Lofts Large Group Move-Ins

A major project for the Dream Design team in 2021 was the construction of the KC Lofts Mixed Use complex on the corner of Kansas City Street and East Boulevard.

The KC Lofts is a four story, 51,600 sqft complex with three stories of residential apartments and four commercial suites on the main level.

The Dream Construction team was highly involved with the project helping to make all of the decisions for a complex like this – paint colors, material types, unit layout, etc., and our crews even got their hands dirty doing a ton of the framing and finishing on the apartment units to race to our August 1 finish line.

Thirty units – the whole third and fourth floors – moved in over the weekend of July 31st/August 1st with a coordinated effort from the Dream Design and Dream Construction teams, polishing up punch list items and managing access to the elevator.

Tenants booked 1 hour time slots to get all of their items up to their suites as fast as possible to avoid congestion and chaos in the parking lot and lobby.

We got to meet rockstar family members and friends who did all of the heavy lifting to load and unload an apartment worth of stuff in such a short time.

After the initial move in for floors 3 and 4, the Dream Construction team worked to finalize the second floor so all 15 remaining units could be occupied by September 1.

Landscaping was polished off in September and High Plains Physical Therapy officially opened their clinic on the commercial side in October.

The KC Lofts have sure brought this corner of Rapid a long way from the old dilapidated cabins that were falling apart – rotted floors, asbestos, and worse – to this well polished complex with granite countertops and brand new appliances in clean, affordable units for students and working professionals.
