Lenexa Civic Center: A Vibrant Community Hub
The Lenexa Civic Center, located in the heart of Lenexa, Kansas, serves as a central hub for the community. This expansive facility houses Lenexa City Hall, the Lenexa Public Market, and the Lenexa Rec Center, making it a multifunctional destination for residents and visitors alike. The Civic Center hosts a wide range of events, including art shows, concerts, and farmers markets, fostering a strong sense of community and local pride.
In the early 2000s, GBA began working with the City of Lenexa and its development partners on the City Center project. In its East Village, GBA designed the street, sanitary sewer, storm drainage and utility infrastructure in 2004-05. Constructed in 2006, GBA completed the site plan design for the first building, which now houses the Grand Street Café.
In 2014, Perceptive Software moved into its headquarters in City Center Lenexa. GBA worked with the master developer and the city to design the first phase of the site, including its main road, 89th Street and Penrose Lane. Construction of the E2 site, now housing Saint’s Pub, occurred at the same time. GBA also assisted with The Lenexa City Hall and Civic Center. To support the district development, GBA also designed City Center Drive.
GBA provided full site development services for the $67 million project, which was partially funded by the 3/8 cent sales tax, and boasts three state-of-the-art buildings.
- Design of complex drainage system into the central green, conforming to the overall vision of the master plan.
- Utility coordination with providers
- Survey services and final plat
- Site layout and grading
