McCownGordon will move Downtown

McCownGordon Construction LLC will move to a now-empty building at 422 Admiral Blvd. after buying the building on Feb. 25, the company's CEO said Tuesday.

 

Pat McCown said he expects to move around the end of the year to the north end of Downtown. Timing will depend on economic incentives the company receives, McCown said.

He said he's encouraged about getting help after having met with officials of the Economic Development Corp. of Kansas City in January.

McCownGordon now leases office space at 1 W. Armour Blvd. in midtown Kansas City, where the company has been since its founding in 1999. McCown said he also had considered moving to Kansas City, Kan., but decided to stay in Kansas City because of work the company does for the city, most notably as construction adviser on the Bartle Hall expansion.

From 35 to 40 people work at McCownGordon's headquarters.

Ed Elder, a broker with Grubb & Ellis/The Winbury Group, represented McCownGordon in its building purchase. Pat McGannon of Kessinger/Hunter & Co. represented the building's seller.

The transaction's terms weren't disclosed.

McGannon wrote in an e-mail message to The Business Journal that the building was built in 1919 as a Ford dealership. The three-story structure was used for nearly 79 years by Holland Nameplate, which has moved to North Kansas City.
