When it comes to marketing and listing enviable properties that combine luxurious surroundings with a coveted location in the heart of Kansas City, Boveri Realty Group is at the top of the list.

The real estate firm specializes in a wide range of residential, commercial and live/work properties, giving prospective buyers an array of options as they search for their downtown dream home. And for those buyers who are eager to make a move now, two dramatic spaces await: one is in Kansas City’s thriving downtown and the other is in the Crestwood neighborhood just south of the Country Club Plaza.

WallStreet Tower

When buying a condominium, you can’t do any better than a penthouse. The two-bedroom, 21/2-bathroom home in WallStreet Tower at 1101 Walnut is priced at $449,000 and boasts an open floor plan with high ceilings and a fully appointed, modern kitchen that includes stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and eye-catching cabinetry.

To take full advantage of the home’s breathtaking downtown view, the penthouse features a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that vividly display the vibrant panorama.

Steve Franke, the penthouse’s current owner, bought the space seven years ago as a second home. Since then, Franke and his family have loved WallStreet Tower’s location.

“We had access to easy parking, numerous restaurants and shopping,” he said. “We walked to places for dinner and brunch on Sundays and we could walk to events in all different directions.”

Franke also loved the home’s breathtaking view and took full advantage of the home’s scenic backdrop.

“I could gaze out over the downtown airport, see the gold steeple at the cathedral and watch the activity on the street when there was a big concert,” he said. “We could watch the seasons change, the trees and flowers budding in the spring and the leaves turning in the fall.”

WallStreet Tower is also an ideal option for prospective buyers who travel and prefer the convenience and peace of mind of a lock-and-leave lifestyle.

WallStreet Tower offers numerous amenities that create a luxurious lifestyle. During the summer, residents enjoy the rooftop saltwater infinity pool and grills. Throughout the year, residents work out in the gym, which is continuously upgraded with the latest equipment.

The theater room has a Blu-ray system and comfortable seats for enjoying motion pictures without leaving the building. The concierge at the front door 24/7 lets residents know who is coming, whether it is a friend or the pizza man. And residents can use the clubroom for a variety of events, including weddings.

Although WallStreet Tower is in the middle of downtown, it is extremely quiet, thanks to the building’s construction. It is one of only two buildings like it in the world that float on pillars deep in the ground, so it doesn’t settle and creak like most buildings.

“It’s a fun place to live,” Franke said. “It has a mixture of young, middle aged and baby boomers — a variety of age groups. Most of the residents are professionals — doctors, dentists, nurses, attorneys, bankers.”

Crestwood Condominiums

Buyers looking for a condominium in the Crestwood or Brookside areas have few options; however, one unit in the Crestwood Condominiums is now available and offers luxury living with a convenient address. Christina Boveri, owner/broker of the Boveri Realty Group, offers this prime listing.

Unit No. 208 at 5401 Brookside Boulevard offers two bedrooms and one bathroom in 1,614 square feet of living space with an additional 250 square feet on the private balcony. Light from the large windows floods the open floor plan and 11-foot ceilings provide an airy ambiance. The kitchen has Silestone counter tops, stainless steel appliances and dark cabinetry.

Boveri said this condo, listed at $369,000, “is a rare opportunity to own a condo in the Crestwood for under $400,000.”

This condo is minutes from the Country Club Plaza to the north or shopping and restaurants in Crestwood and Brookside to the south.

Amenities in Crestwood Condominiums include a community center, exercise room, hobby room, pool and sauna, and a guest room so visitors don’t have to stay at a hotel, as well as lawn maintenance, snow removal and trash service.
