August 16, 2012 – Overland Park, KS – With the demolition of a dated building at 5101 College Boulevard in Leawood, Reece Commercial Real Estate believes the surrounding area is positioned for modernization and growth. Reece helped fast-growing company iModules Software choose the location, negotiate the removal of the old building, and prepare to build its new headquarters. According to Reece Commercial broker John Sweeney, the deal signifies the continued modernization of the area of Leawood on College between Roe and Nall.
Updates to outdated Leawood area
John Sweeney of Reece Commercial Real Estate represents the owner of five of the ten properties on this area of College, including two older properties and buildings at 11100 Ash, 5401 College, and 11111 Nall. All of them were built in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The two older properties lack elevators and more modern fire safety designs. But Sweeney says the area is now being modernized and that is leading to greater occupancy rates in the area.
Sweeney says the building at 5101 College was demolished in late July to make room for the new iModules Software headquarters. Other improvements to the properties are ongoing. “The owner has been able to make the type of improvements tenants are looking for, whether it means allowing iModules Software to get a new building design or retrofitting outdated office space to meet the needs of modern companies,” he says.
New building positions iModules Software for continued growth
Reece helped iModules Software, which provides online constituent engagement software for educational institutions, search for a new headquarters location. The ten-year-old company wanted unique architecture, high-profile signage, state-of-the-art training facilities, and more space for growth. iModules Software has been working with El Dorado Architects of Kansas City on an innovative design for the new 18,000 square foot headquarters. “Our new building in Leawood is a reflection of our continued growth and our commitment to providing a superior work environment for our team members. We are excited to be a part of the revitalization of this business corridor,” said Fred Weiss, President of iModules Software.
