Amerimar Enterprises Acquires Key Telecom Carrier Hotel in Kansas City
By Gabriel Circiog, Associate Editor
Real estate development, investment and management firm, Amerimar Enterprises Inc. announced it has acquired 1102 Grand Avenue, a fiber-rich building located in downtown Kansas City. Amerimar Enterprises partnered with telecom industry veteran Hunter Newby to own and operate the property.
Situated on the southwest corner of Eleventh Street and Grand Avenue, the 26-story property was originally developed in 1931 as an office building and is listed on the National Historic Registry. Since then, the 194,000-square-foot property has been redeveloped into the most fiber-dense, network-neutral facility in the Kansas City Metro area. 1102 Grand Avenue is considered one of the fastest growing telecommunication hubs in the Midwest. With immediate access to the Axon ring, the fiber optic loop that connects the Johnson County area of the Kansas City Metro with Downtown Kansas City, the building’s location is of particular interest to telecom businesses. The property also offers highly reliable data center operations with its robust power and HVAC infrastructure.
Jerry Marshall, president and chief executive officer of Amerimar said: “1102 Grand fits squarely within Amerimar’s strategy to acquire properties with stable cash flow and the opportunity to add value over time through infrastructure improvements. 1102 is a natural fit for the Amerimar platform, and we’re thrilled to be working with Hunter Newby on yet another telecom property.”
Amerimar Enterprises, which specializes in redeveloping and repositioning real estate assets, has acquired over 50 properties totaling approximately 10.5 million square feet of office, 870,000 square feet of retail, 2,600 residential units and 3,200 hotel rooms since 1993.
