The bustling scene found in downtown Kansas City has drawn people from all stages of life to consider a move to the city. Among the city’s urban living experts are Andrew and Nicole Mall, Darren Taylor and Ellen Vap, of Team Mall. Each has years of real estate experience on both sides of the state line, and their collective knowledge of urban real estate combined with first-hand knowledge of the city has led to the sell-out of several notable condo communities.
All of Team Mall’s listings at One Park Place, which begin in the low $400,000s, will be open today from 1 until 4 p.m. Each offers the rare opportunity for owners to enjoy a quiet location, while still being in the heart of Kansas City. The stunning, modern property is nearly fully occupied, and the developer hopes to accelerate the sales of its few remaining condos by offering a buyer incentive of six months paid HOA dues. In addition, the developer has offered to cover all HOA closing costs for buyers who sign a contract and close a transaction before July 31, 2016.
Today’s open houses include two- and three-bedroom condos, each with open floor plans and upscale finishes. An elegant corner condo on the fifth floor listed at $449,000 has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one half bathroom, and over 2,100 square feet of living space. Its views of downtown are complemented by a gas fireplace with a stone mantle and floor-to-ceiling windows spanning 10 feet in height. The large master suite includes a walk-in closet and a luxury en-suite bath with dual vanity granite countertops, a glass-enclosed shower and soaker tub. The kitchen features granite countertops, a gas cook top, stainless steel appliances, a storage pantry and breakfast bar with room for seating.
The building’s 20,000 square feet of amenities were designed for convenience and comfort. Outdoor space can be found on the private terrace level, complete with a furnished patio, swimming pool, whirlpool and a BBQ area that plays host to gatherings year-round. The 176 acres of green space from nearby Penn Valley Park affords residents the opportunity to enjoy nature without leaving the city.
The lobby level houses amenities including a temperature-controlled wine cellar with private lockers and a tasting room, a chic demonstration kitchen, wet bar and entertaining area. Year-round amenities include a virtual indoor driving range and pet-grooming room.
The state-of-the-art fitness center, including a yoga and Pilates studio, a variety of weight training options, and cardio equipment rival those found at local health clubs. The whirlpool spa, sauna, indoor lap pool and massage room give owners the opportunity to belong to a gym without ever leaving the comfort of home.
Owners appreciate services not found at other downtown condo buildings, such as around-the-clock, front-door service including concierge and security personnel.
Team Mall’s open houses extend beyond the walls of One Park Place. Their listing in the Greenlease Cadillac building (2929 McGee) will also be open from 1 until 4 p.m. and boasts beautiful views of downtown from its third-floor space.
Built in 1918 for the Greenlease Motorcars Company, the building now houses 29 residential lofts and is within walking distance of Martini Corner, Crown Center, Union Station, and the WWI Museum.
Historic charm and modern design collide with traditional loft elements like brick walls and high ceilings. This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo affords more than 1,500 square feet of living space.
Hardwood floors are found throughout and its gourmet kitchen features maple cabinetry, a four burner gas range, wine refrigerator, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. An oversized granite kitchen island provides abundant prep space and seating. A large master bedroom and en-suite include a whirlpool tub, oversized shower with double showerheads, spacious vanity with dual under mount sinks and granite countertops. An expansive walk-in closet, designed and installed by Kansas City Closets, offers storage and dressing areas not typically found in boutique buildings. A second bedroom, with a Murphy bed, can also be used as an office. The outdoor terrace, accessible from the main living and dining area, is a coveted feature of this condo, allowing natural light to fill the rooms and providing homeowners a relaxing reprieve.
Listed at $399,000, this condo includes one garage parking stall and one storage unit. The building’s tax abatement, in place through 2031, saves homeowners thousands.
