Opus Debuts Mixed-Use Project in Kansas

Working with developer Tim Barton of OPRE, the company is set to add 125,000 square feet of office and retail space to downtown Overland Park, Kan.
Edison District

The Opus Group and developing company OPRE have broken ground on a 125,000-square-foot mixed-use project in Overland Park, Kan. The planned Edison District will encompass a five-story building providing office and retail space, an outdoor event plaza and a 4.5-level parking garage accommodating up to 400 vehicles. The new development is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2019.

The Class A building will be located at the southwest corner of 80th and Marty streets, less than 10 miles from the CityPlace Corporate Center, where Mediware is building its new headquarters. Project plans also include a first-floor food hall featuring a coffee shop and Asian-inspired cuisine. The office space on the second floor will be occupied by Edison Spaces, while the third, fourth and fifth floors will provide speculative office space. A skyway on the second floor will connect the parking garage and the building.

This is the second time The Opus Group partners with developer Tim Barton of OPRE. The two companies worked together in 2013 at the headquarters of shipping services firm Freightquote. In addition to the two developers, OPRE and Opus Development Co., the team behind the project also includes Opus Design Build as the design builder and Opus AE Group, the interior designer, architect and structural engineer of record. AREA Real Estate Advisors will be in charge of marketing the office space for lease.
