Project Profile | Cypress45
There’s a new addition to the northeast Wichita area. Welcome to "Cypress45" - new, innovative, customizable commercial spaces intended for small businesses and start-ups.
Longtime partners of Mahaney, W.A.M. Capital Corp. developed the site. Kirby Building Systems designed the plans, and Mahaney Steel constructed the three buildings. W.A.M. Capital now manages and leases the new commercial spaces.
When talking first steps, Damon Young said, “Any project starts with the owner’s dream.”
In this case, the dream was to help get start-ups into a commercial real estate space that could cater to a small business’ needs.
W.A.M. Capital Vice President Chris Madsen said, “This is a little bit of a departure from what we normally do... A lot of the businesses we work with are locally owned. A lot of them may have started in someone’s home or garage, and this might be their first step into a commercial real estate space.”
Each space inside the three buildings can be custom-fit for the needs of the tenant, and these capabilities come from early planning with Kirby Building Systems. For example, adding framed openings to the building’s structure accommodates future doors, windows and overhead doors.
Driving by, the facilities are eye-catching. Along with an on-time completion and coming in under budget, creating something aesthetically pleasing was a goal from the start.
Damon said, “One of the goals was to take the low cost of a pre-engineered metal building and add architectural elements and features that really make the project stand out.”
To accomplish this goal, Mahaney Steel used Pac-Clad architectural panels, Mapes canopies over each entrance, and attractive building numbers and glass storefronts.
Damon said, “The team came together and were able to make a product that we can all be proud of for years to come.”
