Colliers International has been hired by SomeraRoad Inc. to lease and manage 5200 Metcalf Ave., a 26.2-acre office campus located between I-35 and Johnson Drive on Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park, Kansas.
The project’s flexible floor plates can accommodate users as small as 4,000 square feet up to 300,000 square feet, offering up to 78,000 square feet contiguous on a single floor. Renovations of the lobby, café, conference facilities, fitness facility and multiple outdoor patios are slated to begin immediately. Even the name is getting a facelift: the campus has been rebranded under the moniker Summit52.
The leasing team – led by Ross Simpson and RC Jensen – is thrilled to take on this project.
“The building itself has so many unique features that tenants will be excited about,” says Ross. “And the location is easily accessible from anywhere in the metro, making Summit52 one of the most desirable office assets in the market,” adds RC.
Jim Unruh – Senior Vice President and head of Colliers International, Kansas City’s Management Services Group – is pleased to expand the firm’s 8+ million-square-foot portfolio in Kansas City.
“Our tailored team – led by Senior Manager Kaci Nowak – is excited to work with SomeraRoad through the renovation phase, and we look forward to providing top-tier management services as the vacancies fill.”
SomeraRoad has made its mark on the Kansas City real estate market with its acquisitions of 3Y and Lightwell, formerly known as City Center Square. The firm acquired 3Y as a distressed and almost entirely vacant property, renovated it, and successfully leased it to 100 percent occupancy. They took a similar approach with the distressed City Center Square property, recently renamed Lightwell, which is wrapping up a $16 million renovation with more than 150,000 square feet of new leases to date.
