Blenheim School Apartments

The project utilized state and federal historic tax credits, along with Low Income Housing Tax Credits to transform the vacant school into affordable senior housing. The adaptive re-use retained the primary spaces such as corridors and the auditorium space, which is now a theater. Details were incorporated into apartments. Many walls retain historic chalkboards and historic fireplace mantels adorns an apartment unit. Non-historic dropped ceilings were removed to reveal the original ceiling height.

The building is once again in-use and has 52 apartment units on Kansas City’s east side.
