Kansas City's Most Bike Friendly Apartment Building, Now Open

Kansas City, MO: Originally built in 1950 on the East side of the Country Club Plaza, the nine story, high-rise apartment building, formerly known as Plaza Towers, was recently purchased and renovated by Chicago based, CF Real Estate Holdings, LLC, managed by Peter Couri. Now known as Plaza 209, the 83-unit complex just underwent over $5,000,000 in renovations turning the building into premier, luxury apartments with an emphasis on high-end finishes, security and a bike friendly theme. Local Real Estate Firm, The Tiehen Group, Inc, was hired as the project manager overseeing the renovation. SWD Architecture and LWP Design were brought to assist with the planning and design. The finest details went into the unit finishes, including open concept kitchens with granite countertops and Spanish subway tile backsplashes, floating vanities, energy efficient Bosch washers & dryers in every unit, and upscale lighting fixtures to name a few.

Plaza 209 was renovated with the eco-friendly bike enthusiast in mind. The ownership teamed up with the local non-profit group, BikeWalkKC, to install the city’s newest B-Station in front of the building. Eric Vaughn and DuRon Nutshell with BikeWalkKC also assisted with the design and outfitting of the bike room which offers tenants secure bike storage, tools and a work bench, storage lockers, and blown up maps of KC’s bike friendly streets and trails. “With designated bike friendly streets in every direction, we decided early on that Plaza 209 should be a bike friendly building. That concept really evolved once BikeWalkKC got involved and we learned more about their mission and the work they’ve been doing,” said Mike Tiehen with The Tiehen Group. “I believe Plaza 209 will cater nicely to renters who live an active lifestyle, and those who value nice finishes, security and the best location in Kansas City.” For every apartment lease signed, LeasingKC will be donating $25 to the BikeWalkKC organization.

The new property manager, CubedRE, LLC from Chicago will be working closely with Kansas City startup LeasingKC to lease this fantastic new property which started leasing March 1st.
