Project Spotlight: Parkway Plaza
Parkway Plaza in Columbus, Nebraska was a vision Renee Mueller of kwELITE, Keller Williams Real Estate wanted to bring to fruition within the rural Nebraska community, along with partner Jeff Thiele. Schemmer partnered with Renee and BD Construction to provide Design Phase Services for the Parkway Plaza project.
The project is:
- 12,550 SF (7,350 first floor and 5,200 second floor)
- new wood construction
- two-story building
The Parkway Plaza is a mixed-use building with the intent of housing businesses that support one another in order to drive more traffic. The first floor boasts:
- Big Apple Bagels,
- All Makes Furniture,
- Charter Title & Escrow,
- Xcel Roofing and
- Applied Connective Technologies as tenants.
The second floor houses the offices of kwELITE Real Estate, Keller Williams. Most importantly, these companies all work cohesively to add value to the community.
The design of the exterior includes veneered finishes of stacked stone, stucco, copper metal roofs and heavy timber accents which are assembled to provide a rustic yet modern aesthetic. Furthermore, the interior of the kwELITE, Keller Williams Real Estate space is comprised of neutral color selections with distressed wood and clean lines. Local small businesses were involved in many of the custom pieces for the interior.
Schemmer’s design scope was limited to the architecture and engineering of the building's core and shell. In addition, Schemmer provided architecture and engineering design of the kwELITE space. The interior finishes were selected by Renee herself. At the project completion, it all came together beautifully, as you can see in the photos below.
