Adaptive Reuse—Humanitarian Center, 215 W. 6th Avenue
Topic/Learning Outcome: The Humanitarian Center was originally Emporia’s middle school. The southern half of the school was recently converted to a shared office space for non-profit organizations, called the Humanitarian Center. The northern part of the school is planned to be converted to the Breckenridge Hotel. We will take a tour of the Humanitarian Center, discussing the tools used to make this development possible. Casey Woods and Joe Foster will provide an update on the status of the Breckenridge hotel and talk about some of the obstacles with its development. Rick Mitchell will also join the conversation to discuss a hotel he is constructing at 923 Commercial Street. The building was a burger stand back in the 1970s and then sat vacant for decades, prior to its new and higher use as a hotel. Rick will discuss the tools that enabled for this development to transpire.
