Parkway Towers – Kansas City Plaza Condominiums is currently at the halfway point of a comprehensive, multimillion renovation encompassing high-tech amenities and systems designed to provide comfort, energy efficiency, beauty and value for generations to follow.
Prospective buyers and brokers are invited to attend a special Open House on Sunday, May 15 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to get a taste of Parkway’s sophisticated, turnkey lifestyle with a welcoming close-knit community ambiance.
Originally built in 1965, this 145-unit condominium building community encompasses units of various sizes, from studios to large units combined for spacious living. Many owners here have spent tens of thousands of dollars to totally remodel and increase the value of their homes.
Great examples of this include Unit 210, a stunning two-bedroom, two-bathroom home considered the best buy on The Plaza; Unit 310, two-bedroom, two-bathroom home with north and west views and lots of opportunity to remodel to your own taste; Unit 401, a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home with updates including a gorgeous new kitchen; Unit 1009, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom home at a reasonable price featuring picturesque views of Mill Creek Park; Unit 1010/1011, an elegant, spacious, two-unit combined condominium with charcoal glass tile, and ebony-stained built-ins, and Unit 1202/1203, a spectacular two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 2,400 square foot, combined penthouse featuring a wood burning fireplace in the living room, and an oversized balcony. All units have at least one parking space.
The building modernization included updating the fire alarm and extinguisher systems, security and mechanical systems, fitness center, foundation garage, corner columns, and the new HVAC system which allows residents to choose hot or cold air upon demand in the shoulder months, an advantage not available in most high-rise buildings.
On the Horizon
Future plans include renovating the exterior curtain wall and lobby entertaining rooms by 2020. This will be accomplished through the competitive Homeowners Association dues and detailed project savings practices, coupled with expert development skills offered by a committee of individual homeowners with engineering and capital finance backgrounds. The goal is to create a beautiful, highly functional exterior with minimum discomfort to residents during the process.
