Get a sneak peak inside the new Power & Light Apartments

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A piece of history is coming to life in downtown Kansas City. And before residents move into the Power and Light Apartments later this week, KMBC 9 News got an exclusive sneak peek inside.
“There’s a real charm to this building that you really can’t get with new construction,” said Mark Pomerenke, the vice president of North Point Development. “They just don’t make buildings like this anymore.”
Built in 1931 as the headquarters of Kansas City Power & Light, it now has apartments available for rent between $995 and $3,200 per month.
“We’re competitively priced with (nearby apartment tower) One Light, but we actually have bigger units, so that’s kind of a unique feature,” Pomerenke said.
The units come with quartz countertops, kitchen islands, stainless steel appliances, high ceilings and a reserved space in the parking garage.
The views from the units offer a beautiful vista of downtown Kansas City. All residents also have access to the roof and its spectacular view.
“Even if you live on the fifth floor, you can come up to the roof and enjoy the evening or sunset,” said Pomerenke.
Fifty high-powered LED lights can bathe the building in any color, so the building can honor the Royals, Chiefs, NASCAR or other reasons to celebrate.
Of the 300 units, 15 percent are pre-leased. The first 40 apartments will open this week. The grand opening for the building is set for July.
Like many parts of the building, the main lobby is still under renovation. When finished, it will feature a lavish event space for wedding receptions and other gatherings.
