Located at Douglas & St. Francis Wichita, KS 67202
Constructed in 1894, shut down in 2004, and now 2018 brings new life to this iconic structure as a key part of the Spaghetti Works District renovation.
The long-vacant Spaghetti Works building downtown is the starting point for a new development that city leaders and others see as a potential catalyst in a key area between Union Station and Intrust Bank Arena.
Wichita-based TGC Development Group, Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Kansas City, Mo.-based Sunflower Development Group have plans for a $23 million development in the 600 block along East Douglas next to Naftzger Memorial Park. The plans include converting the 1894 Spaghetti Works building into 41 apartments and, on a parking lot in front of it, building a 60,000-square-foot Class A office and retail complex.
Wichita Downtown Development executive vice president Jason Gregory said the development accomplishes things that were stipulated for the site when the city created a 15-year master plan for downtown growth in 2010. “It’s a very key location in downtown, being a strong connector potentially between the arena and the successful Old Town entertainment district,” Gregory said.
