Meeting held regarding a restructuring of Innovere.
Housing project started. A group of us have begun work towards a business model of housing development in the KCMO area. The two-part plan consists of higher-quality newly built in-fill housing (building on lots within already developed neighborhoods) and renovation of abandoned homes. The premise being that banks tend to not lend on properties valued below $50,000 or less due to high fees. The scope of the plan focuses on areas that the median home value is below this $50,000 threshold. A small dense cluster of new homes/quality renovations creates an area of effect raising nearby home values above that $50,000 mark. The ultimate goal being a cascade effect in which homeowners can more easily receive private lending to purchase or refinance their existing homes.
Began new work at a business incubator called "Innovere." Innovere Innovere in it's current state is a mixed-use establishment in the Westside of Kansas City, MO. The 39,000 sqft facility houses one building with office space, a warehouse with multiple bay doors, and multiple paint booths (currently not in operation). In a separate building there is office space and a vehicle repair shop with several 4 point lifts. Working with Innovere are several construction related businesses, marketers, and inventors who work as part of the organization at least indirectly. The facility itself also hosts other tenants.
