Brinshore continues progress on Northeast developments

Brinshore Development’s affordable housing efforts in the Historic Northeast will continue into 2019 with the completion of three new developments comprising nearly 120 combined units.

Roughly eight months after Brinshore Development held a October 2017 ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 30-unit, mixed-income Pendleton Flats complex – its first Paseo Gateway housing project in the Historic Northeast – progress continues at a handful of other Brinshore projects in and around Independence Avenue.

The 38-unit Pendleton ArtsBlock project (Independence Ave. and Olive) is the furthest along, with the footings and foundation already being installed. The 57-unit Quinlan Place (8th and Paseo) and 22-unit Quinlan Row developments (8th and Woodland) are not far behind, and all three projects are expected to be completed by the spring of 2019.

“We’re on schedule, and I’m extremely excited about adding those developments to the neighborhood,” said David Brint, CEO of Brinshore. “I love the neighborhood, in large part because it’s diverse and it has a lot of architecturally interesting buildings.”
Brinshore’s work in the Historic Northeast was made possible by a $30 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation grant for Paseo Gateway, executed by the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) department in January 2016.

Northeast Kansas City Chamber of Commerce President Bobbi Baker-Hughes is enthusiastic about the work that Brinshore is doing and how it might impact the area for years to come.

“I’m very excited about the work that Brinshore is doing on Independence Avenue,” Baker-Hughes said. “I think it’s going to change the face and the fabric of the Avenue on the west end.”

While Pendleton Flats, Pendleton ArtsBlock, Quinlan Place and Quinlan Row are part of the wide-ranging Paseo Gateway project, Brinshore has also joined an independent renovation partnership at Maple Flats (511 Maple), a three-building, 72-unit complex set to deliver refurbished, affordable units this month.

“When you’re making the kind of investments that were made in the Pendleton Heights neighborhood, you want to make sure that other buildings get redeveloped,” Brint said. “We’re trying to continue the positive momentum.”

For now, Brinshore is content with the 219 new and renovated affordable units that will be available in the Historic Northeast by the spring of 2019. That said, he didn’t completely rule out the possibility of future investments in the area, if the right opportunity becomes available.

“I don’t have any specific plans,” Brint said. “We’ll continue to look in the neighborhood to see what’s good for us and good for the neighborhood.”
