Investment Property

Value-Add Investment

Acquired August 2015 and held to present

After purchasing a single-family house and making improvements while in college, Alex sold and took the equity to purchase a duplex with the intention of a value-add, medium-term hold with upgrades to aesthetics and building systems. Since acquisition, rents have been raised 45% through natural re-tenanting and the property has generated an average annual cash-on-cash return of 13.6% upon stabilization.

Placemaking

Gallery Alley

May 2016 to present

Representative of his placemaking work, Gallery Alley is a project that reimagines an underutilized alley in downtown Wichita as a vibrant, pedestrianized outdoor art and sculpture park. Gallery Alley eliminates an unsafe and uncomfortable automobile cut-thru while providing an attractive public space for the benefit of neighboring residents, businesses, and the general public. The project launched on May 26, 2016 and has since seen over 20,000 visitors.
