Since the opening of the eight city block Power & Light District, downtown Kansas City has garnered national attention for its urban renaissance. The transformation has included more than $10 billion in public and private development over the last ten years, with more than 3,000 new apartment units and 1,900 hotel keys in development, and a streetcar line nearing completion. The Power & Light District is the most visited destination in the state of Missouri with over 9 million visitors per year.
«We are incredibly proud to have played a role in the renaissance of downtown Kansas City, and to have partnered with Mayor James and the City,» said Blake Cordish, Vice President of The Cordish Companies. «We designed and developed One Light with the goal that it would be on par with the best apartment buildings in the country, whether in New York, Chicago or San Francisco. We believe that is what Kansas City deserves, and we are proud to say that is what we have delivered.»
The 307-unit luxury apartment tower in downtown Kansas City, Missouri is downtown’s first new construction, high-rise apartment tower building in 50 years, and one of the most luxurious, amenity-rich apartment communities in the country. Since the start of construction in May of 2014, One Light has enjoyed unprecedented interest, and opens with more than 80 percent of its apartments leased. Based on the tremendous demand for penthouse units, One Light added a second penthouse floor midway through construction.
