The Vision: There’s an entire new community growing in the heart of Kansas City — the Crossroads Arts District. The Nicholson Group Real Estate is a driving force in building this lively, creative community that is showing the rest of Kansas City how to bring the city back to life. As the real estate leader in Kansas City’s Crossroads renaissance, the Nicholson Group has worked one building at a time with a goal to preserve the architectural fabric of Kansas City’s streetscapes, the Nicholson Group has developed and renovated dozens of commercial and residential spaces in the Crossroads over the last two decades. New commercial tenants, most with a creative bent, have breathed new life into the Crossroads’ once-vacant streets. A renewed community is a reality in the Crossroads today. The Nicholson Group has quietly worked to make that happen by developing distinctive older buildings for new purposes.
