Scenic surroundings, a concierge staff that is unmatched in the city and million-dollar amenities are just a few of the details found at One Park Place, a premier residential property in Kansas City.
According to Andrew Mall, who markets the building along with Ellen Vap, “Buyers appreciate having services typically reserved for a five-star hotel being made available to them in a residential setting.”
Among these services is around-the-clock front-door service including concierge and security personnel, an offering that sets One Park Place apart from other condominium properties in the city.
One of the building’s first owners said the decision to call One Park Place home was easy because of the outstanding service he received while touring the building as a guest. “They’re pleasant and helpful — everyone who comes to visit is impressed by the level of service they experience.”
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.
“The staff is very accommodating,” said an owner who has lived in the building since 2011. “There’s peace of mind in knowing that even little details are attended to and handled with care.”
Beyond the front desk, a dedicated team of property management professionals ensures that owners enjoy a comfortable and luxurious living experience that allows them to relax the minute they step inside the door of this iconic condominium high-rise building.
Property manager Ron S. Littman and building engineer Casey McKinnon ensure that all the elegant public areas of the building are spotlessly maintained and operate smoothly.
McKinnon can be found throughout the building and the grounds, from the roof to the driveway and beyond, ensuring all systems are humming along. As we move into fall, the location high above the city allows owners to enjoy the changing seasons without worrying about damage to their home.
“When you’re a homeowner and there’s a storm, you’re always worried about the aftermath – will the roof be damaged? Are we going to have to clean up after fallen trees or shovel snow in the winter? Here, we can relax, knowing maintenance issues will be taken care of for us,” said owner Stephanie Smith.
Littman’s responsibilities include coordinating reservations for the shared areas for residents’ events and parties and ensuring the grounds and 20,000 square feet of indoor amenities exude a welcoming environment.
These amenities include a billiards room and 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.
An outdoor swimming pool, whirlpool and barbecue area provide the perfect backdrop for summertime entertaining. 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.
Since Aug. 1, a special incentive of six months paid HOA dues has been offered to buyers who close before Oct. 31. And, a real estate property tax abatement that will reduce the amount of property taxes payable by approximately 90 percent, representing a substantial, bottom-line benefit for its homeowners, is in place until 2016.
Additionally, One Park Place has 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.
The CPM approval process evaluates a project on numerous acceptance guidelines including the number of units sold or under contract; percentage of owner-occupied units; and a homeowner association’s solvency and stability.
With a number of move-in ready luxury condominiums available and prices beginning in the low $300,000s, this weekend is perfect for touring the five furnished models featuring very distinct design styles. Each space has been designed in neutral palettes that allow homeowners to create their ideal living area.
