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.
