Cocktails & Conversations | Cushman & Wakefield

5:30 PM
Cushman & Wakefield | 4600 Madison Ave,. Ste. 800 Kansas City, MO 64112 Map

Join us for our first Cocktails & Conversations of 2018 hosted by BRR Architecture. We'll be meeting at Cushman & Wakefield's new space on the Plaza. 


The recent office relocation of Cushman & Wakefield’s Kansas City team was a full embrace of the global real estate firm’s new corporate strategy for work place design. Before moving to a newly-renovated 7,100 sq. ft. office off of the Country Club Plaza, the KC Cushman & Wakefield team was in an office nearly three the times the size, with a large amount of unnecessary, unused space.

Needing to accommodate various types of activities in a smaller footprint, the goal with the new office was to create a multi-purpose lobby and reception area that would give the Cushman & Wakefield team a space for hosting industry events and in-office lunches or socials. The lobby’s direct connection to the large conference room via a movable glass wall allows the space to grow as needed.

The new office is an open, neutral-toned space that is better-suited for the Cushman & Wakefield team’s flexible and collaborative workflow. Artistic wall maps throughout the space allow team members to pin up projects, add notes or target areas in larger metro areas. The space combines raw and industrial design elements with intentional moments of color to reflect the Cushman & Wakefield brand. The blend of materials with the furniture and fixtures projects a contemporary, but comfortable, aesthetic that is an ideal place for all activity types, from client meetings, to team strategy sessions.

Overall, the new space has allowed Cushman & Wakefield to streamline their internal team coordination, and increase efficiencies for their different business avenues.
