New urban rental properties offer affordable luxury, coveted locations

Boveri Realty Group

Christina Boveri, who has championed urban living for more than a decade, is excited about four new apartment developments that are underway this year. All are in popular areas for those who want to live where they work and play, stretching from the West Bottoms to Brookside, and each has its own ambiance and appeal.

Boveri, owner of Boveri Realty Group, has long helped people find the right homes, condos and townhomes to buy in the urban core, but her company also has a leasing division ready to assist renters in finding exactly the right place to call home, whether in an apartment complex, a condo or a home. Boveri carefully researches all of the available leases so she can best serve her clients and she is especially happy to be able to assist them in leasing these new ventures – Stockyards Place, Centropolis on Grand, 63 Brookside and Argyle on 12th.

Stockyards Place

Luxury living awaits in downtown Kansas City’s historic Stockyards District. Stockyards Place (1515 Genessee), named for the location of the Kansas City Stockyards, which flourished from 1871 to 1991, now offers 11 high-end apartments in several floor plans, includingstudio, one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts.

The building’s sleek exterior provides an eye-catching contrast to the historic structures that line the streets of the West Bottoms district. Inside, bright and airy floor plans are enhanced by contemporary fixtures and finishes including stainless steel appliances, polished concrete flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows with solar shades and showers with oversized rain shower heads and benches.

Step outside on a spacious balcony, complete with custom metal railings, and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding neighborhood and downtown Kansas City skyline.

Several Stockyards Place apartments are available now, including studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans priced from $1,480 to $5,218/month. All apartments include a washer/dryer and one garage parking space.

Centropolis on Grand

Centropolis on Grand, at 501 Grand Boulevard and just across the street from City Market, is under construction and will be completed in May, according to Justin Cottrell. The architecture of the building will blend well with those surrounding it in River Market and offers an incredible opportunity for those who want to live in the area.

Centropolis offers just 56 units, including 52 one-bedroom apartments that will rent for $1,330 to $1,565, and four two-bedroom units which rent for $2,186, offer an exclusive opportunity to live in a corner apartment that features panoramic views of the City Market and surrounding downtown neighborhood. Of the 56 apartments, these four are the only two-bedroom floor plans in the building, so interested residents are encouraged to act quickly and secure their new home.

Residents will enjoy the use of a courtyard terrace on the second floor offering sweeping views of downtown, as well as outdoor tables, grills and lounge chairs. Apartments also have balconies. Garage parking is available on the first floor of the building and the streetcar will stop right outside the door.

Residents just have to cross the street to purchase produce in the Farmers Market at City Market or to enjoy the restaurants, ethnic grocery stores and boutique shops there. They are an easy stroll away from unique restaurants and entertainment scattered throughout the River Market area.

Those interested in Centropolis can pre-lease now and move in when construction is completed in May.

63 Brookside

Welcome to what developer John Hoffman called “the new Brookside.” A flurry of development is happening along 63rd Street east of Oak, including Hoffman and UC-B Properties’ newest project, 63 Brookside, located at 63rd Street and Holmes.

The contemporary space, scheduled to be completed on June 1, offers 23 units in studio, one- and two-bedroom layouts. Each unit includes a balcony, the perfect spot on which to enjoy idyllic views of the surrounding Brookside neighborhood. Interior features include all electric appliances, quartz countertops and tiled baths. Residents have access to secure off-street parking, and each apartment is wired for Google Fiber.

Rents at 63 Brookside range from $900 to $1,400/month. In anticipation of the building’s completion in early June, lease applications will be accepted starting in April. This is a prime opportunity for modern, affordable living that not only puts residents a short walk away from the shops and services of Brookside, but also several new favorite neighborhood spots including Heirloom Bakery, Plate and Season + Square.

“This is the first new apartment building in Brookside in over 40 years,” Hoffman said.

Argyle on 12th

Live in the heart of downtown Kansas City in a building that celebrates the city’s history while embracing the modern features and amenities that today’s downtown dwellers covet. What was once a four-story commercial building designed by renowned Kansas City architect Louis Curtiss, Argyle on 12th (306 E. 12th St.) is now a 10-story building that offers luxury living without the high-end price tag.

A variety of one- and two-bedroom floor plans are available with prices ranging from $815 to $1,600/month. Numerous windows ensure an ample supply of natural light, as well as views of the nearby Power and Light District, Sprint Center and more. Updated finishes include stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops. Residents also have access to an enviable array of amenities, including a movie theater, pet spa, yoga/Pilates studio, covered parking, a rooftop deck and bicycle storage.

Thanks to Argyle on 12th’s prime downtown location in the heart of the Central Business District, residents are just one block away from the Power & Light District and a short stroll away from the Sprint Center, Crossroads Arts District and the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. It’s the perfect spot in which to enjoy the incredible dining, entertainment and events that downtown Kansas City has to offer, all right outside your front door.
