Christina Boveri, who has championed urban living for more than a decade, is excited about several new apartment developments that are underway. All are in popular areas for those who want to live where they work and play, stretching from the West Bottoms to Brookside.
Boveri, owner of Boveri Realty Group, has long helped people find the right homes, condos and townhomes to buy in the urban core, but her company also has a leasing division ready to assist renters in finding exactly the right place to call home. Boveri carefully researches all of the available leases so she can best serve her clients and she’s especially happy to be able to assist them in leasing the new ventures listed below.
East 9 at Pickwick Plaza
Ninth Street and McGee
Contemporary meets history at East 9 at Pickwick Plaza, the once iconic Pickwick Plaza Hotel that’s now being transformed into high-end luxury apartments in the heart of downtown. The first of two phases includes 45 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartment units that will be available for occupancy by early November.
The operative word for East 9 at Pickwick Plaza is “spectacular,” said Thomas C. Smith, who’s developing the property with Gold Crown Properties. Modern apartments outfitted with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and other luxury appointments are surrounded by the historic structure that includes a majestic lobby, which Gold Crown Properties has carefully restored to capture its original splendor.
In the building’s lower level, residents can relax and unwind in Harry’s Hideout, named for President Harry S. Truman, who frequented the hotel and wrote musings on his 1934 U.S. Senate candidacy. The new space will be equipped with flat-screen TVs, pool tables, skeeball, pinball and a golf simulator, among other amenities.
Apartments are priced for affordability without sacrificing luxury. Studios will be priced from $750-$850; one-bedrooms from $950 to $1,100; and two-bedrooms from $1,200 to $2,000. Leasing is now underway.
Apex on Quality Hill Summit on Quality Hill
1032 Jefferson St.
1200 Washington St.
New construction opportunities are increasingly rare in downtown’s Quality Hill neighborhood, which makes Apex on Quality Hill and Summit on Quality Hill especially enticing for residents who covet contemporary apartments and enviable amenities that Mary Herrold, vice president of marketing and business development for property manager JVM Realty Corporation, said aren’t found in most downtown communities.
Soak in panoramic downtown views from spacious balconies. Inside, enjoy expansive windows, soaring ceilings, stainless steel appliances, designer tile backsplashes and wood plank floors throughout. An unmatched amenities package includes a fitness facility equipped with leading-edge technology and equipment; pet spa and washing station; dry cleaning pick-up and drop-off; 24/7 accessible package lockers; and a resort swimming pool and sun deck.
Prices start at $1,250 for one-bedrooms; $1,577 for one-bedrooms with dens; $1,840 for two-bedrooms; and $2,212 for two-bedrooms with dens. Both two-bedroom layouts include one assigned gated garage parking space.
Summit on Quality Hill will be the first to welcome new residents in late summer or early fall, followed by Apex on Quality Hill. Names are now being taken for leasing opportunities.

Luxury living awaits in downtown Kansas City’s historic Stockyards District. Stockyards Place now offers 11 high-end apartments in several floor plans, including studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts.
The building’s sleek exterior provides an eye-catching contrast to the historic structures that line the streets of the West Bottoms district. Inside, bright and airy floor plans are enhanced by contemporary fixtures and finishes including stainless steel appliances, polished concrete flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows with solar shades and showers with oversized rain shower heads and benches.
Step outside on a spacious balcony, complete with custom metal railings, and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding neighborhood and downtown Kansas City skyline.
Several Stockyards Place apartments are available now, including studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans priced from $1,480 to $5,218/month. All apartments include a washer/dryer and one garage parking space.
Centropolis on Grand
501 Grand Blvd.
Centropolis on Grand, just across the street from City Market, is now welcoming new residents as finishing touches are underway on the building’s 56 units.

63rd Street and Holmes
Welcome to what developer John Hoffman called, “the new Brookside.” A flurry of development is happening along 63rd Street east of Oak, including Hoffman and UC-B Properties’ newest project, 63 Brookside, located at 63rd Street and Holmes.
The contemporary space offers 23 units in studio, one- and two-bedroom layouts. Each unit includes a balcony, the perfect spot on which to enjoy idyllic views of the surrounding Brookside neighborhood. Interior features include all electric appliances, quartz countertops and tiled baths. Residents have access to secure off-street parking, and each apartment is wired for Google Fiber.
Rents at 63 Brookside range from $900 to $1,575/month, a prime opportunity for modern, affordable living that not only puts residents a short walk away from the shops and services of Brookside, but also several new favorite neighborhood spots including Heirloom Bakery, Plate, and Season + Square.
