Drs. Glenn and Summer McGee’s family has lived in some amazing places as their careers that have taken them around the world, but the one place Glenn dreaded leaving behind is their condo in downtown Kansas City, the largest, three-bedroom condominium in WallStreet Tower at 1101 Walnut St.
When the McGees moved to New Haven, Conn., they put their three-bedroom condo on the 13th floor for sale. It is listed with Boveri Realty Group at $469,900 and is one of only two three-bedroom condos in the building.
“It was designed by combing two large units when the building was originally converted to condos,” Glenn McGee said. “The original owner was the first president of the WallStreet Tower owners association and he named the unit TriBeCa after the area in lower Manhattan in New York. It reflects that name in several ways.”
One of the condo’s best features is the breathtaking view, McGee said. “Because it is a corner unit and spans far across the building, you can see the entire city in three directions, west, north and across all of downtown. There are effectively two walls of privacy-coated glass. The sunsets are amazing and even a stormy day is beautiful and dramatic.”
Never miss a local story.
McGee said the condo has an open floor plan designed for both elegant entertaining and family comfort. The large kitchen offers everything a gourmet chef desires with designer cabinets, marble and granite.
The master suite includes a bathroom with Italian tile, a glass-enclosed shower with three showerheads and jetted tub. An open area in the bath leads to a large, walk-in California Closet.
One of the other two bedrooms has a glass wall looking west while the other is adjacent to the second bathroom, which has a glass-encased tub and shower as well. The long hallway leading to the bedrooms is lighted to accent art.
And because it was created by combining two units, this condo comes with four parking spaces in the covered, controlled-access garage that are conveniently close to the door, as well as a double, climate-controlled storage area.
McGee said the building amenities at WallStreet Tower are outstanding. During the summer his family took advantage of the rooftop saltwater infinity pool and grills, picnicking with their neighbors almost every evening. The family could work out in the gym, which is continuously upgraded with the latest equipment.
“The theater room has a Blu-ray system, seats and picture as good as a real theater,” he added. “There is a concierge at the front door 24/7 so you know who is coming, whether it is a friend or the pizza man, and you know you are safe. Several weddings are planned each year in the clubroom.”
Although WallStreet Tower is in the middle of downtown, McGee said the condo is extremely quiet, thanks to the building’s construction. “It is one of only two buildings like it in the world. It floats on pillars deep in the ground, so it doesn’t settle and creak like most buildings.”
And the location is unmatched. “It is like Tribeca in Manhattan: within walking distance of about 100 restaurants and limitless entertainment,” McGee said. “In two minutes you can be at the symphony, the city’s best movie theater, Sprint Center, Power & Light or River Market. This is what has attracted young professionals, families and retirees to live here.”
The family also walked to the nearby downtown grocery store and to the park and joins others in raving about the new charter school within walking distance.
WallStreet Tower is an ideal option for prospective buyers who want to be a part of the vibrant downtown area’s culture and entertainment, as well as those who travel and prefer the convenience and peace of mind of a lock-and-leave lifestyle.
