Brywood Centre is an open-air shopping center located at the northwest corner of E. 63rd Street and the Blue Ridge Cutoff in Kansas City, Missouri. Tenants located in the shopping center include Price Chopper Food Store, Dollar Tree and various small shop tenants.
The original architecture of the existing shopping center included a wood clad canopy/signband and column covers, and, a sloping cedar shake canopy. The Project included façade renovations that maintained the structure of the existing canopy, converted the sloping canopy and low profile signband to an EIFS-clad box canopy with a larger signband to provide more visibility of the facades from E. 63rd Street. A unique challenge of the Project was a significant slope of the site across the building’s frontage. This was addressed with strategically locating ramps, stairs and sidewalk landscape features in order to create a pleasant and interesting environment while conforming to accessibility requirements. D.Z.A.’s services also included preparing various site plan layouts for several outlot parcels.
