Olathe acquired an empty former Hy-Vee grocery store at the NE corner of 135th Street and Brougham Drive. After extensive renovations the building has been transformed into a modern 52,000 square foot library with meeting rooms, making labs, technology services, children’s programs, and an on-site café. Exterior improvements include an outdoor café patio, and outdoor extension of the interior children’s space, and a park space north of the library. SK Design Group provided civil design services on the project including restoration of the existing parking lot, new storm sewers, water service and fire protection service to the renovated building, and new access to the service area on the east side of the building. This project was completed in 2019.
