Kansas City, Missouri
The Loretto is a multipurpose venue, off of the 39th Street corridor adjacent the historic Roanoke neighborhood in Kansas City, Missouri. It was dedicated in 1904 as a boarding and day school for girls and currently functions as a true mixed-use building, with apartments and offices, as well as corporate and wedding chapel/ event spaces. The design approach for this project is to make spaces more current, aesthetically pleasing, and functional while respecting the historic character of the building.
More specifically, the remodel of The Loretto will expand and refresh finishes at existing wedding event space, refresh the pre-function event space adding a new bar, create new dedicated bride and groom suites, new honeymoon suites, and four new short-term rental units. The administrative spaces hallways and common areas will also be receiving an update. Additionally, the exterior will be updated as well adding a new deck to the south end of the wedding event space, and an outdoor event space to serve as an alternate location for weddings as well as an overflow for the interior event spaces.
The Loretto is expected to be complete in Summer 2019.
