Made in KC fashions new space in Lenexa City Center
Lenexa, Kan. — Copaken Brooks is excited to welcome Made in KC to The District at Lenexa City Center. Made in KC’s new space, occupying a total of 8,166 square feet, is located on the first floor of Penn I across from the Public Market.
Launched in 2015, Made in KC provides local Kansas City artists and makers a platform to reach customers across the metro. The store features work from more than 300 local artists, designers and makers, including apparel, artwork, home and apothecary goods, accessories, culinary products and more.
Made in KC selected the new space in The District with the hope of expanding its area footprint, following success in Overland Park, Lee’s Summit and downtown Kansas City. The new store will be similar to Made in KC’s Plaza location.
“When Made in KC was searching for its new location, we were really drawn by the hub of activity and development at The District,” said Made in KC co-founder and co-owner Tyler Enders. “We’re really looking forward to being a part of Lenexa City Center and the exciting growth surrounding it.”
Erin Johnston, Vice President of Retail Leasing at Copaken Brooks, represented The District in the deal while Chris McIntyre of Merrill Companies represented Made in KC.
“Made in KC is a fantastic resource for local artists and makers as well as an established brand of Kansas City pride,” Johnston said. “We’re very excited to welcome this vibrant addition to The District.”
As a mixed-use development, Lenexa City Center offers walkable amenities to its tenants that include a coworking space, the Public Market and the Lenexa Public Library.
When fully developed, Lenexa City Center will consist of more than 2 million square feet, including civic components for the City of Lenexa, nearly 1 million square feet of office and retail, and 375 residential units. The District Shops will include a variety of unique stores, restaurants and cafes in the heart of Lenexa’s new downtown.
