Topeka, KS — The second-tallest building in Topeka, only behind the Capitol, is getting a makeover. You may have noticed the Townsite Tower is getting a fresh coat of paint.
“Frankly we thought the old façade was ugly, it was dirty brown, and we think what we’re doing is better,” said Ken Schmanke, founder of K1 Realty, who owns the property.
The Townsite Tower is the former Bank of America building. Schmanke also owns the Townsite Plaza just east of the tower.
He and his team have been making improvements since he bought the properties a year ago. By the end of 2021 more than 10 million dollars of renovations will have been invested in the location.
