Eager buyers have been drawn to One Park Place for its premier location, incomparable skyline views, resort-like amenities and vibrant social community.

Situated at the corner of 31st Street and Southwest Trafficway, the two- and three-bedroom residences, which range from 1,400 square feet to over 3,000 square feet, overlook both sides of the state line, afford short drives to various destinations and offer penthouse-like views.

The building is now over 80 percent sold and on the heels of the third consecutive year of double-digit sales, the developer has announced a five-month incentive program for buyers. Beginning Feb. 1, all buyers who sign a contract and close a transaction before June 30, 2015, will receive $5,000 in seller-paid closing costs.

At One Park Place, homeowners enjoy a comprehensive suite of lifestyle amenities which begin upon entering the iconic building, as a concierge welcomes them to the premier residential property in town. Each of the building’s 20,000 square feet of amenities was designed for convenience and comfort.

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. A billiards room and extravagant temperature-controlled wine cellar with private lockers and a tasting room provide the perfect spot for unwinding.

A fitness studio, complete with hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling mirrors for yoga, Pilates and other activities, is available on the main level. One Park Place is the only condo building in Kansas City to offer an indoor saltwater lap pool, whirlpool spa, and women’s and men’s locker rooms with steam rooms. During summer months, an outdoor heated swimming pool, whirlpool and barbecue area provide the perfect backdrop for summertime entertaining.

As the building continues to fill with new owners, an exciting social community awaits. Monthly social gatherings from Downton Abbey watch parties and a Mardi Gras-themed potluck to book club meetings and monthly ladies luncheons help make One Park Place a welcoming place to call “home.”

According to the founder of the social committee, “We have truly created a cul-de-sac community feel, but with much better views. It’s not uncommon for an impromptu happy hour to begin in the wine tasting room and end with a dozen neighbors enjoying dinner together. We are a big part of each other’s lives.”

From inside each home, owners are able to entertain clients, family and friends without having to step a foot outside the building. Open floor plans and elegantly designed spaces with premium finishes and appliances provide the perfect backdrop for intimate gatherings and larger entertaining.

Magnificent south-facing views from a luxury corner condo are offered in a model home on the 17th floor. Features of this 3,500-square-foot condo include 10-foot ceilings and an impressive wall of windows. Inside you’ll find three generously sized bedrooms and 21/2 bathrooms. Designed to be both sleek and inviting, the open floor plan allows for uninterrupted, easy flow from one room to the next. The monochromatic palette with clean modern lines and interesting textures allows the scenery to take center stage.

The master bathroom rivals that of a luxury spa and includes a glass-enclosed shower and large soaking tub, granite counter tops, dual sinks, ample drawer space and under-sink storage.

Features of the kitchen include granite counter tops, upgraded stainless steel appliances and a large, walk-in pantry. Ample storage space and closets are found throughout the home.

Among the requirements of many owners is a view with green space, of which there is plenty. Thanks to the beautiful scenery afforded by nearby Penn Valley Park and its 176 acres including a picturesque lake, residents are provided with the ideal blend of natural, scenic surroundings and sleek, luxurious accommodations.

If you’ve considered purchasing at One Park Place, now is the time. Not only is the $5,000 sales incentive being offered all buyers who sign a contract and close a transaction before June 30, 2015, but the building has also been named a Fannie Mae Condo Project Manager (CPM) approved project. With this approval, future buyers will need only a 5 percent down payment and current owners will be allowed to refinance and take advantage of record low rates.
