Building the Economic Engine of the Rainbow Corridor
12 April, 2018
“Building the Economic Engine of the Rainbow Corridor” is what Wyandotte County Economic Council president Greg Kindle said about the development team that recently completed Home 2 Suites by Hilton. The facility is strategically located just north of the University of Kansas hospital at 34th and Rainbow Boulevard. The project acutely addresses the growing need for long term accommodations for hospital patients and families, visiting students and educators, and working professionals in the midtown and downtown Kansas City areas. The Rainbow Village Home 2 Suites offers 89 guestrooms and modern amenities, including a swimming pool, meeting rooms, and individual kitchens.
From conception to occupancy - seven years in the making – the project was led by Lane4 Property Group and designed by Davidson Architecture & Engineering, and is now open for business. Crossland Construction Real Builders project manager Cory Howell and field engineer Adam Bray show off the indoor pool and fire pit at the Home 2. Along with Project Manager, Cory Howell, Derek Haverkamp was the Project Superintendent. Others in attendance include Wyandotte District 3 City Councilwoman Ann Brandau-Murguia, president of Lane4 Owen Buckley, and representatives from the University of Kansas hospital.
