CityPlace Hosts Topping Out Ceremony for CityPlace

Corporate Centre III Class A Office Building

Mediware Will Move into the First of Four Office Buildings Planned at the Overland Park Mixed Use Development

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (August 13, 2018) – Block Real Estate Services, LLC celebrated a construction milestone at its CityPlace Corporate Centre III office building with a traditional topping out ceremony today. Upon completion, CityPlace Corporate Centre III, a Class A office building, will be the home of Mediware Information Systems, Inc.

Members of the community who were instrumental in the planning, development and construction of the property, signed the project’s final steel beam before it was hoisted and placed atop the building.

The building features 120,268 square feet and is the first of four Class A office buildings to be constructed within the mixed-use CityPlace development. Once complete, CityPlace will feature up to 600,250 square feet of office space, 1,382 multifamily units, 140 senior units, and up to 60,000 square feet of retail space located at the southwest corner of College Boulevard and Highway 69 in Overland Park.

“We are thrilled to be topping out our first Class A office building in our CityPlace development today and celebrating with all of our strategic partners who have contributed to the project along the way,” said CityPlace developer Ken Block. “We are honored that Mediware selected CityPlace as the home of its corporate headquarters, validating our premier mixed-use development designed for residents to live, work and play for years to come.”

CityPlace Corporate Centre III, constructed by Titan Built, designed by Hoefer Wysocki Architects and developed by Block Development Company, will include a blend of granite and precast panels and reflective glass in a modern design. This highly visible and accessible site is one of the last remaining office development parcels along the entire College Boulevard corridor. Mediware will occupy approximately 55 percent of the space in CityPlace Corporate Centre III.

“When we learned about the new construction at CityPlace, we knew we wanted to get in on the ground floor of this project. As we solidify our position as the leading innovator in health care and human services solutions, we needed a world headquarters that would reflect our vision of powering stronger, healthier communities,” said Bill Miller, CEO of Mediware. “CityPlace offers an ideal environment for welcoming clients to our new state-of-the-art experience center and gives us room to create collaborative workspaces that attract people who want to help us solve the toughest problems in care.”

Mediware, a leading supplier of software solutions that help healthcare and human services providers, will occupy floors three and four of the four-story building and has committed to a future lease term of 15 years and four months, beginning in June 2019. Tenants and their employees will enjoy access to dining and retail amenities in CityPlace, as well as those located nearby within the College Boulevard corridor.

The Offices at CityPlace has been designed with a campus-like setting, incorporating walking, jogging and bike paths, and a reflective pond. CityPlace has been positioned to provide unparalleled visibility from both College Boulevard and Highway 69, and access to College Boulevard, Highway 69 and Interstate 435.
