Docking Building Study Available


The Kansas Department of Administration today released a report to the Senate Ways and Means Committee detailing options for the future of the Docking State Office Building, located at 915 SW Harrison St. in Topeka.

Prepared in accordance with a Fiscal Year 2020 legislative budget proviso, the Lawrence-based architectural firm Clark Huesemann presented two rehabilitation options developed as part of a nearly five-month-long feasibility study. One option describes the rehabilitation of the 62-year-old building in its entirety while the second option reduces Docking to three floors with an additional three floors built on top as part of new construction.
