Luxury Apartments Opening in Downtown KC

The revival of downtown Kansas City continues with the opening of the new Union Berkley Riverfront apartment complex.


The premium development is located just north of downtown Kansas City along the south bank of the Missouri River. Developer Flaherty & Collins designed the $75 million mixed-use development featuring more than 400 residential rental units, retail options, office space, and an underground parking garage. Spread out over two buildings, the west section is expected to open this Friday, while the east building is expected to open its doors in August.


The four-story buildings offer plentiful green space and a variety of amenities designed to appeal to pet owners. The parking garage will feature an artificial turf outdoor dog park on the top floor, while a dog park bar aptly named Bar K is under construction on the west side of the complex. Although no dogs will be allowed inside the bar and restaurant portion of Bar K, an outdoor deck will accommodate leashed pets. Dog owners will appreciate the two dog washing stations located in the west building.


Other amenities of the Union Berkely Waterfront complex include an outdoor saltwater pool with waterfall, a fitness center, a pickleball court, a poolside cabana with a TV and grilling stations, a bike lounge complete with beer on tap, and a coffee bar offering complimentary lattes to residents. The east building is expected to house a yoga studio, spinning facilities, and a library. A nail salon has already signed on to lease one of the coveted retail spots and developers are looking for a restaurant and bar to call the area home.


Studio rents start at $1000, while one-bedroom units will run $1,250 to $1,500 per month. Those with extra money to burn can choose the luxury penthouse for $7,000 monthly.
