Linwood Area Ministry Place (LAMP), at the site of the former Linwood Presbyterian Church at Linwood Blvd. and Bruce R. Watkins Drive, is transforming one of Kansas City’s most visible landmarks into a vibrant campus of community services. The initial phase of redevelopment is to be completed in late Summer 2015 and includes the adaptive reuse of the former sanctuary structure built in 1923, as well as the adjacent Harold Thomas Center built in 1931.
LAMP will support the effective delivery of critical services and add momentum to the resurgence of the Linwood corridor and Ivanhoe neighborhood in a setting designed to foster inter-agency collaboration and community partnerships. LAMP will house the midtown operations of ReDiscover, a major regional mental health agency, and Front Porch Alliance, a Presbyterian led community partnership providing youth of the Ivanhoe area with the education, support and skills needed for their future. Other community agencies are being recruited to the campus. For leasing information contact Joyce Murray at Newmark Grubb Zimmer, 816.512.1004, firstname.lastname@example.org.
