Company History

Hickok-Dible has been in the real estate development business as a builder, developer and property manager continuously since its founding in 1904.

Timothy W. Hickok is currently President of the company.

In its one hundred years of activity, the company has built over seven thousand living units throughout the Midwest. The Hickok-Dible name in Kansas City is synonymous with quality construction and optimum value. During the last thirty years, the company has diversified into the construction, ownership and management of various income properties, including commercial space, shopping centers, apartments, townhomes, and golf course communities. The Company built virtually everything between 99th and 101st streets from Nall to Lowell in Overland Park, Kansas and was featured in the book "Historic Overland Park."

The construction of the Pines Apartments, located at 95th and Mission Road in Overland Park, Kansas, in 1965, signaled Hickok-Dible's entry into the apartment construction and rental business. Its success led to the construction of the Pinebrooke Apartments and Townhomes, consisting of 230 units, located at 103rd and Conser in Overland Park, Kansas, built in 1968. The construction of this complex set the tone for all developers in the Greater Kansas City area with respect to the construction of upper bracket apartments and townhomes which could later be converted to condominiums. We have recently concentrated on multi-family but want to stay close to our roots and still develop some single family; most recently Mission Pines, a patio home subdivision at 79th and Mission Road in Prairie Village, Kansas, and Pinecroft, an infill single-family subdivision at 83rd and Nall, also in Prairie Village. We developed the last phase of Pembroke Court in Leawood Kansas, also a patio home community.

Our multi-family operations span nearly two thousand units in three states. Recently we have concentrated on the extreme upper end apartment market; we completed PineCrest, a 144 unit rental townhome community in Olathe, Kansas, in 2004 and Pine Meadow Townhomes in Shawnee, KS in 2006. We are building the Mansions in Lenexa, KS, a 150-unit AAA class project, and soon will break ground on Prairie Pines, a 200 unit complex in western Shawnee.
