The old Traders on Grand building has nearly completed its transformation into The Grand, a luxury apartment complex that boasts amenities like Downtown's highest rooftop pool, an attached dog park/dog shower, a game room and movie theater in a former vault.

The $67 million project is a partnership between Sunflower Development Group and Block Real Estate Services LLC.

When it was completed in 1962, Traders on Grand was the first new downtown skyscraper built since the 1930s. When it opened, Traders Bank occupied the first four floors at 1125 Grand Blvd.

One vestige of the bank — the drive-through — will remain as part of the new project and will serve a yet-to-be-identifed coffee shop. The two outer lanes of the drive-through will become ITMs — an internet-based hybrid cousin of the ATM.

Mark Moberly, Sunflower’s director of development, said it was important to use the drive-through space, given that there are so few around Downtown and that it's unlikely more will be built.
