Newly installed racks at Landmark Lofts in the River Market.

Leasing KC “gets it.” At their grand opening celebration for their Landmark Lofts building, they proudly showed off the bright yellow bike racks BikeWalkKC’s Bike Parking Team installed along their block. Inside, guests took tours of the dedicated bike room, also outfitted by the Bike Parking team.

As realtors in the residential rental market, Leasing KC is committed to building the Kansas City that their clients and residents want to see.  Whether residents are looking for bike-friendly housing or they take up biking because their housing makes it safe and convenient, Operations Manager Layne Joswich says residents want more than just a place to sleep, and “LeasingKC and its partners are committed to providing the greatest opportunity for local residents to engage with their communities, both within their building and outside. Easy, flexible and active transportation options are key to that success and BikeWalk KC rises above and beyond that expectation.”

Landmark Lofts is the latest project in a long history of BikeWalkKC/Leasing KC partnership. It all began with a bike room and bike share station at their Plaza 209 property, and since then they’ve hosted a special edition bike education class and sponsored Tour de Bier consistently. “We really appreciate the work BikeWalkKC has done with the city to help provide more biker friendly commuter lanes and access to bikes through thier easy access bike stations around town. They promote safety, healthy living and environmentally sustainable transportation solutions for urban commuters,” says Joswich.

Our members power our work, and our business members are able to leverage their considerable influence for even greater change in the Kansas City region. We are grateful to Leasing KC for including us in their vision for a walkable, bikable, livable Kansas City!
