Plaza neighborhood apartment tower to be overhauled

A nine-story apartment building east of the Country Club Plaza has been bought for $5.2 million by a Chicago investment group that intends to begin a major remodeling in January.

The buyers, represented by Sean Connelly of the real estate firm 33 Realty, have purchased Plaza Towers, an 84-unit brick building at 209 Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd. The Plaza Tower, located a half-block east of the Plaza-area Winstead’s restaurant, has been home to many college students over the years as well as some long-time residents.

The new owners intend to upgrade the apartments to “condo quality finishes with modern design,” Connelly said.

He said the company expects to end up with one- and two-bedroom apartments that rent for between $945 and $1,200 a month in the fall of 2016.

The Plaza is for sale.

Highwoods Properties announces plan to sell Country Club Plaza

Highwoods Properties announced Wednesday that it intends to sell all or substantially all of the Country Club Plaza, the nation’s oldest vehicle-oriented shopping area and one of Kansas City’s most attractive residential, commercial and tourism spots.

Heard on KCRAG that Van Tuyl may have bought the Plaza.

Highly doubtful… The plaza is projected to be valued around $1B, the Van Tuyl family is wealthy, probably worth around $3B, just doesn’t seem like something theyd allow their VanTrust real estate company to take on… but then again a joint venture would not surprise me…

Tesla just opened a store on the Plaza this week.

New Plaza area development is running into some issues.
