Location, security, floor plan, building maintenance, quiet environment, view, secure garage parking. When asked what attracted them to the Carlton Plaza Condominiums at 4740 Roanoke Parkway, owners listed features that go on and on.

Start with easy access to all that the Country Club Plaza has to offer just two blocks away. What’s not to like with distinctive architecture, upscale shopping and a wide variety of restaurants, not to mention the great exercise that, weather permitting, strolling the pedestrian-friendly Plaza offers.
Completion of the Plaza Vista offices for Polsinelli Shughart and the adjacent 132-room Hotel Sorella, just one block south, now add another exciting dimension to the neighborhood which includes the Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Survivors Park.
If you rank security at the top of your list, the Carlton Plaza’s secure garage parking and video surveillance at the controlled access entrances will appeal to you. Management’s careful attention to maintenance makes the lock-and-leave feature attractive to those who travel frequently. Central services including the Carlton’s four-pipe heating and cooling systems offer year-round comfort, but limit residents’ utility costs and concerns.
Non-load-bearing walls allow buyers an opportunity to reconfigure and remodel to their personal style, taste and needs. Since the Carlton houses fewer than 60 residences on 12 floors, residents appreciate the “neighborhood environment” and the east exposure from all the Carlton balconies.
Model homes offer visitors the opportunity to imagine what options are available to upgrade the as-built apartment homes, now for sale, priced from $130,000 for any of the three first-floor units of approximately 900 square feet to the spacious 1,500-plus-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom units at the north and south ends of this premier mid-century apartment conversion.
Marble bathrooms, mostly Carrara, with newer fixtures are standard, as is crown molding. For those who demand the availability of a gas cook top, look no further. At the Carlton Plaza, that is an option. Most of the 14 units now available are equipped with hook-ups for a stacked washer and ventless dryer.
HVAC costs as well as water and sewer charges, maintenance of the structure and tastefully updated common areas, access to an equipped exercise room and communal laundry with free-of-charge equipment are covered by the monthly 44-cent per square foot homeowner’s fee.
Furnished models as well as unimproved units are available for viewing and immediate occupancy. Drop by Saturday or Sunday this weekend between 1 and 4 p.m. to tour them or call Kansas City Homes’ Tom Thornhill, Jamie Closson or David Johnston at 816-960-1300 for an appointment at a time convenient for you.
