Project Spotlight: Strang Chef Collective at Lightwell

By Josh McDonald, Senior Project Manager with Nexus 5 Group

Project: Strang Chef Collective at Lightwell, 1100 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64105

Client: Shawn Craft- CEO of Strang Chef Collective

Architect: Gastinger Walker Architects

Project Size/Type: 4,090 SF Tenant Improvement Project

Strang Chef Collective is a project we completed at the Lightwell building in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. This space houses two chef-driven restaurants contained in one space. These two chefs provide different food concepts. Panacea is a new American bistro, and Verde is a healthier spin that has Spanish influences. They also have a full bar available to accommodate cocktail hours. It’s in a casual, modern space that provides a beautiful restaurant experience when dining.

The space includes two televisions, digital menu boards, and an integrated sound system. It also has two full kitchens, prep areas, a Pollution Control Unit, and beautiful wood veneer wall panels.

“This was a very challenging project in a market with material delays and specialty items. Our team did a great job navigating these challenges along side the architect and owner’s to deliver a space we are truly proud of. Job well done!” Brent Hastings, Project Manager
