Mazuma Credit Union Invests $15.9M in New Corporate Headquarters
By Gabriel Circiog, Associate Editor
Officially announced in June, the project broke ground in July. The Kansas City Business Journal reports the new corporate headquarters will represent a $15.9 million investment by the Kansas City credit union. Mazuma’s current headquarters are located on 9300 Troost and will continue to serve as a branch for members in south Kansas City once the Overland Parking building is complete. The new headquarters is scheduled to open in September of 2014.
“We’re growing and our current headquarters no longer offers the space and infrastructure we need to expand,” said Brandon Michaels, president/CEO of Mazuma. “More importantly, we’re responding to the demand for services with the dramatic increase of Members in Johnson County. We’re establishing a presence to better serve our Members and expand services in that area.”
The new 60,000-square-foot building will feature a three-story atrium, a fitness center and a coffee bar. Other features will include a 1,700-square-foot community center available to local residents and a series of uniquely themed “innovation areas.” For this project Mazuma partnered with architecture firm Praxis 3, financial industry experts Level 5 and interior design group Sky Design. “We’re excited to bring Members, Overland Park and Kansas City a fantastic new landmark that everyone will be proud of,” Michaels said.
At the groundbreaking ceremony, Tracey Osborne, president of the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce said: “We’ve been looking forward to this day for a really, really long time. I know there’s a lot of excitement and energy already surrounding this building. This is an important and momentous occasion for the entire metro region.”
