One Park Place exudes luxury and elegance beginning with its landscaped drive past island planters and fountains. Walk inside the iconic building and you’ll find the very finest finishes and furnishings throughout. It is also here where homeowners and visitors are first greeted by a concierge, welcoming them to the premier residential property in town.
According to Andrew Mall, who markets the building along with Ellen Vap, few condominium properties in Kansas City offer around-the-clock front-door service including concierge and security personnel. “Buyers appreciate having services typically reserved for a five-star hotel being made available to them in a residential setting.”
The welcoming staff at One Park Place meets and greets residents and their guests upon entering the building, but their professionalism and attention to detail doesn’t stop there. They attend to the daily needs of residents, taking receipt of deliveries, maintaining a log of daily events, monitoring people and vehicle movement in the building and observing the point-of-entry security systems to ensure peace of mind.
High-end amenities at One Park Place don’t end at the concierge service. The building offers 20,000 square feet of indoor amenities, including a billiards room, an extravagant temperature-controlled wine cellar with private lockers and a tasting room.
A beautifully decorated lounge, along with an elegant fireplace, enhances the sitting room and cigar parlor. All homeowners in the building have access to the media lounge equipped with flat-screen televisions, an inviting bar area, a chic demonstration kitchen and spacious party room. Year-round amenities include a virtual indoor driving range. A pet grooming room and outdoor pet playground ensure that Fido’s every need is met.
An indoor saltwater lap pool, steam rooms and fitness center housing the latest in cardio and strength-training equipment make staying in shape easy. A fitness studio, complete with hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling mirrors for yoga, Pilates and other activities, is also available. During summer months, an outdoor heated swimming pool, whirlpool and barbecue area provide the perfect backdrop for summertime entertaining.
An active social committee organizes events, ranging from book club meetings and sporting events to weekly happy hours and cooking classes, to make One Park Place a wonderful place to call “home.”
“The vibrant community here has far exceeded my expectations,” said committee chairwoman Stephanie Smith. “The camaraderie between owners is greater than what I experienced in 20 years of single-family, cul-de-sac living.”
If you’ve considered purchasing at One Park Place, now is the time.

Each space has been designed in neutral palettes that allow homeowners to create their ideal living area. These carefully considered combinations of color, texture and finishes bring a fresh look to every home.
