WIRED Women Winning Awards

WIRED purchased a table at the recent CRE 2022 Capstone Awards, held this year at the Lowes Hotel in downtown KC.  

We are so proud of our WIRED member, Diane Botwin, for winning an award in the category of Mixed-use for her new development project, 222 Waldo Flats

These modern studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments offer Waldo residents a central location and amenities, including walk-in closets, on-site parking and energy-efficient thermostats. The five-story, 44-apartment space offers a boutique-style living environment. The building also includes two ground-floor commercial spaces occupied by Littlefield Eye Associates and Bicycle Depot Kansas City. 

Congratulations, Diane!
