Standing tall above the heart of the city, One Park Place has been one of Kansas City’s most notable buildings for more than five decades. Built by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the tower was among the first glass box skyscraper projects and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it houses 108 condos where owners experience nothing short of luxury living within minutes of where they work and play.
Today and Sunday, four of Team Mall’s listings will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. to allow prospective buyers to tour unique floor plans located throughout the building. Steve Tremaine, Senior Loan Originator at PrimeLending, will also be on-site to discuss financing options.
Conventional financing (up to 97 percent loan to value), VA financing (up to 100 percent loan to value) and jumbo financing are three options available to buyers at One Park Place. Those who wish to put their own touches on their purchase may wish to take advantage of conventional renovation loans to remodel a dream condo.
According to Tremaine, these options provide creditworthy homebuyers who would otherwise qualify for a mortgage, but may not have the resources for a larger down payment, the opportunity to claim their address at the prestigious One Park Place.
Among the condos open today is an elegant fifth floor listing with two bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms and over 2,100 square feet of living space. Listed at $449,000, its views are complemented by a gas fireplace with stone mantle and floor-to-ceiling windows. The master suite includes a walk-in closet and a luxury en-suite bath with dual vanity granite counter tops, a glass-enclosed shower and soaker tub. The kitchen features granite countertops, a gas cook top, stainless steel appliances, a storage pantry and breakfast bar with room for seating.
On the seventh floor, design and lighting upgrades can be found throughout a two-bedroom, 2½-bathroom corner condo with more than 2,900 square feet. An oversized kitchen island, wrapped in glass mosaic tile, provides prep space and seating. A large master bedroom and en-suite include a whirlpool tub, walk-in shower, spacious vanity with dual under-mount sinks and granite countertops. Closets with custom organizers offer an abundance of storage and dressing areas in this home, listed at $675,000.
A one-of-a-kind condo on the 10th floor, listed at $749,900, boasts custom features not found elsewhere in the building. Ideal for entertaining, its elevated kitchen features a spacious island and hibachi grill, while a wet bar and see-through gas fireplace await just steps away. Vast windows and an open floor plan allow you to take in show-stopping views from this condo, with over 2,700 square feet, two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Airy 10-foot ceilings and expansive dining and entertaining areas promote both conversation and relaxation. Upgrades include a bathroom featuring glass tile walls, dual showers and “smart” windows made from electrochromic glass that turn from clear to opaque and back again at the flick of a switch.
A private elevator reserved for the four penthouse-level condos transports residents from the lobby level directly to the top floor, where walls of glass provide unobstructed views of downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods throughout a two-bedroom, 2½-bathroom condo, listed at $885,000. Features include 12-foot ceilings, a gourmet kitchen with large pantry, granite countertops and a see-through fireplace between the living room and kitchen.
The top-shelf amenities at One Park Place have fostered a sense of community and allow owners to live, work and play under one roof. Notable amenities include a newly remodeled luxury event space, a media lounge equipped with flat-screen televisions, an inviting bar area, a chic demonstration kitchen and spacious party room. A billiards room, an extravagant temperature-controlled wine cellar with private lockers, and a tasting room provide the perfect spot for unwinding.
During summer months, owners enjoy an oasis in the center of the city. A private, landscaped outdoor entertaining area features a furnished patio, swimming pool, whirlpool, BBQ area, putting green and dog run. An onsite, premier fitness area includes a full weight room equipped with cardio and strength training equipment. An indoor saltwater pool, steam room, mirrored Pilates/Yoga studio and a massage room are also available on the lobby level.
The building is over 90 percent sold and the developer hopes to accelerate the sales of its few remaining condos by offering a buyer incentive of six months paid HOA dues, and will cover all HOA closing costs for buyers who sign a contract and close a transaction before July 31, 2016.
