Already the best view in town any time of the year, One Park Place at holiday time is especially extraordinary. Here atop the highest point in the city, residents and guests may ring in the New Year with spectacular skyline lights twinkling from downtown to midtown.
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.
A festively decorated model home on the 20th floor penthouse level offers more than 4,300 square feet and is listed at $1.325 million. Seamlessly blending traditional and contemporary elements, this home presents a cozy feel to each room as its lively color palette infuses the large space with warmth.
Upon entering, soaring ceilings and an impressive wall of windows provide the best views in Kansas City, where above it all, everything is within reach. Inside you’ll find three generously sized bedrooms, 31/2 bathrooms and a spacious media room. An additional room, with endless south-facing views, is the perfect space for an office or den.

The master bathroom rivals that of a luxury spa and includes glass-enclosed shower and deep soaking tub, granite countertops, 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.
A private elevator reserved for the four penthouse-level condos transports residents and guests from the lobby level directly to the top floor. Add indoor parking to the list of conveniences enjoyed by homeowners year-round, one cannot overstate its significance during winter months. And, in warmer weather, enjoy maintenance-free living with beautiful landscaping and manicured lawns without the hassle of lawn mowing, yard work or gardening.
The top-shelf amenities at One Park Place allow owners to live, work and play under one roof. The grand lobby, a sprawling, opulent first-floor space is carefully laid out with a selection of resort-style amenities. A host of entertainment options, a beautiful blend of interior architectural design, and incredible views together create an ideal setting to host a wonderful winter soiree for friends and family alike.
Homeowners have the perfect setting in which to serve their favorite varietals in the wine tasting room, just beyond the cozy fireplace. As guests enjoy hors d’oeuvres and conversation they will be impressed by the multi-screen media lounge equipped with flat-screen televisions, an inviting bar area, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, a well appointed demonstration kitchen and spacious party room. Beyond the entertainment area, guests can try their hand at a game of bridge in the card room or pool in the billiards room.
The virtual indoor golf range allows residents to keep their golf game “up to par.” And a cold, windy day won’t interfere with your workout regimen. The state-of-the-art, fully equipped fitness center houses the latest in cardiovascular and strength training equipment and the attached aerobics studio is the ideal setting for yoga and Pilates. Those who prefer a swimmer’s workout may enjoy the indoor saltwater lap pool, a whirlpool spa, steam room, and a massage room.
According to Andrew Mall, who markets the building along with Ellen Vap, the variety of floor plans, resort-like amenities and financing options has resulted in double-digit sales for the third straight year.
“One Park Place has welcomed more new residents over the past 11 months than any other luxury condo community in Kansas City,” Mall said. “Five unique models on different floors offer an unparalleled perspective of the city. Buyers are able to walk through these distinct floor plans and visualize how to arrange their furniture, which has resulted in increased momentum for our sales activity.”
One Park Place offers financing options to help make buying your dream home a reality. As a Fannie Mae Condo Project Manager (CPM) approved project, 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. In addition, a real estate property tax abatement that will reduce the amount of property taxes owed by approximately 90 percent, representing a substantial, bottom line benefit for its homeowners is in place until 2016.
