One Light Luxury Apartments, a 307-unit luxury apartment tower in Kansas City’s Power & Light District, is downtown’s first new construction, highrise apartment tower building in over 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 opened with more than 80 percent of its apartments leased.
The community, which was a unique public-private initiative between The Cordish Companies, City, State and Federal Government, features studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and penthouse luxury apartments. Strategically located on one of Kansas City’s new streetcar stops, One Light has redefined urban living for the Midwest by marrying luxury, smart growth and state-of-the art apartments with all-inclusive entertainment and lifestyle amenities that take advantage of The Cordish Companies’ broad array of experience and assets in the entertainment, hospitality and gaming worlds.
One Light features groundbreaking, exclusive offerings such as a resident certified sommelier, cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs, a VIP host program to meet individual residents’ entertainment and reservation needs, and a sophisticated artisanal wine, cocktail, craft beer and small plate dining service at the $5 Million rooftop pool and lounge. One Light flows into an adjacent gourmet market, Cosentino’s Downtown Market, a 35,000 square foot state-of-the-art fitness club, Onelife, and one acre rooftop dog park. All of these benefits, including its design and decor, set a new standard and provide One Light residents the ambiance and amenities of a sophisticated boutique hotel coupled with the conveniences of lifestyle amenities.
One Light is the first of four luxury apartments The Cordish Companies will build in downtown Kansas City. Each will feature a similar amenity and entertainment-rich lifestyle, a calling card of all of The Cordish Companies’ projects in the gaming, hospitality, urban development and multifamily spaces.
