KC's Most Expensive Apartments

(page 1 of 3)

Kansas City and the surrounding area are becoming more similar to places like Los Angeles or New York City; not in that there’s a hubbub of show business or vegan restaurants galore (though it’s getting there), but because apartment prices are sky high. Luxury complexes are all the rage and we’ve wrangled up some of the most expensive in Kansas City. 


One/Two Light

($1,340- $5,525)

50 E 13th St, Kansas City, MO 64106 (One Light)

1444 Grand Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64106 (Two Light)



Though it’s only been around for a few short years, One Light Luxury Apartments has taken the city by storm. Home to sports stars like Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon, this complex has become steeped in exclusivity in a heartbeat. With amenities like a rooftop pool and an all-hours concierge, One Light can fulfill any penthouse dreams.

The success of this downtown escape led to the building of Two Light, and soon, there’ll be a Three Light. But if their main objective was to bring an exclusive luxury complex to Kansas City, why create three? A Kansas City realtor of 25 years seems to believe that the hubbub has subsided with the creation of Three Light. 

“People were intrigued with One Light due to the exclusivity that came along with it. When Two Light was created, it became a supply and demand situation, but with Three Light in the works there just isn’t anything special about it anymore. It’s a chain now, not a unique experience as it once was.”

Fountain View on the Plaza

($1,200- $6,000)

The Plaza is known for giving Midwesterners an exotic European experience right in the heart of Kansas City, and with the architecture being modeled after Spain, expensive apartments don’t seem too out of the picture, right? And at upwards of $6K a month, most jaws have still not returned to the closed position. 

Altitude 970

($1,000- $2,300)

Altititude 970 Gym


6301 N Klamm Rd, Kansas City, MO 64151



Altitude 970 — even the name sounds fancy. Stepping into the lobby, you already feel like you’re in an episode of Fixer Upper, thanks to the high chandeliers and the brass paneled walls, but the excitement doesn’t stop there. The pool is what really seems to sell it. With lounge chairs fit for a king and the all-access bar and grill, there’s no need for a tropical vacation anytime soon.
