KANSAS CITY, MO - The Cordish Companies announced the grand opening of Two Light Luxury Apartments in the Kansas City Power & Light District. Team members from The Cordish Companies and the Power & Light District were joined by distinguished guests from the City, community and business leaders, the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, as well as executives and team members from JE Dunn Construction Company, lead project architect Hord Coplan Macht, and interior design firm RD Jones to celebrate the opening of the brand new luxury residential tower last week. Two Light joins its sister property, One Light Luxury Apartments, as the second new construction high-rise apartment building in the last 50 years in downtown Kansas City, MO. One Light, which opened in the Power & Light District in November 2015, reached 100 percent occupancy in less than five months.
Since the opening of the nine city block Power & Light District, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, 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 5,000 new apartment units and 1,900 hotel keys in development, as well as a newly opened KC Streetcar line. The Power & Light District, developed by The Cordish Companies, is the most visited destination in the state of Missouri welcoming over 9 million visitors per year.
"On behalf of my family and our entire team at The Cordish Companies, we are excited to celebrate the grand opening of Two Light Luxury Apartments and honored to continue to play a role in the forward momentum of downtown Kansas City," stated Blake Cordish, Vice President of The Cordish Companies. "Like its sister property, One Light, Two Light was designed to rival the quality and amenities of any residential community in the country. We are extremely proud of what we have delivered with Two Light and know that it will be a vibrant addition to the Power & Light District and the Kansas City skyline for decades to come."
The 24-story, 296-unit building located at the corner of Grand Boulevard and Truman Road in the Power & Light District adds vibrant energy and 400+ residents to downtown Kansas City. Two Light features 18 floors of 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and penthouse apartment homes; a seven-story parking garage with 499 spaces; and 3,100 square feet of retail space occupied by Power Life Yoga Barre Fitness.
"Two Light Luxury Apartments adds an exciting layer of 24/7 energy to the Power & Light District," stated Nick Benjamin, Vice President of Development and Multifamily Housing for The Cordish Companies and Executive Director of the Power & Light District. "Like One Light, Two Light was designed to offer a luxury, amenity-rich lifestyle in an elevated urban environment. Residents at Two Light will have access to exclusive, top-of-the-line amenities, all within steps of the multiple dining, entertainment and cultural offerings of the Power & Light District and downtown."
