Project Description

Reeves-Wiedeman Company, a local plumbing supply company dating back to 1887, is renovating the historic oh Dean building located at 3536 Main Street and converting it into office and retail space. Reeves-Wiedeman Company will be moving its corporate headquarters operations from Lenexa to the completed building by the end of 2010. The development is expected to help revive the once thriving corridor between Crown Center and the Country Club Plaza.

Since the KCMO CDE helped to finance the Reeves-Weideman renovation with NMTC, Main Street has seen significant improvements in the area. The Whole Person, a non-profit, renovated and relocated to an empty building just across the street. Aside from the obvious building development, owner Kurt Weideman has noticed a gradual transformation of the block, “I see people out, activity… moms with kids in baby jogger strollers…. In fact, many joggers early in the morning and evening. Main Street has now become a safe thoroughfare for pedestrians.”
