Office Development

Ascend Learning • Leawood, KS

In winter 2011, CBC Real Estate Group fulfilled move management services for Ascend Learning by completing the relocation of over 300 employees to a new office at Two Hallbrook Place in Leawood, Kan., just south of Kansas City. The consolidation, part of CBC’s development management work for Ascend, allowed the company to unite its local employees in one building. Staff was previously spread throughout two different locations in neighboring communities.

Located at 11161 Overbrook Road, Two Hallbrook Place offers easy highway access and pristine views of greenspace and luxury neighborhoods for Ascend, a parent company for several technology providers in the healthcare and vocational educational sectors. Ascend occupies three of the building’s four floors, approximately 83,000 square feet, and has the option to expand to the fourth floor.

Employees gather in light-filled public meeting areas, cafes and training rooms fitted with ample glass windows and doors, many etched with the words passionate, courageous, boundaryless, great listeners, analytical with urgency, embracers of change and selfless – key statements that reinforce Ascend’s belief system.

Assisting CBC was architectural firm GastingerWalker& and JE Dunn Construction.
