51 Main was the first city infill multifamily site completed by VanTrust and is located in Kansas City, Missouri just south of the historic Country Club Plaza in the vibrant South Plaza neighborhood. The location is generally considered to be one of the trendiest in all of the Kansas City metropolitan areas due to its convenient access to major employment, as well as more than 100 restaurants in the Plaza/Brookside areas. Significant neighborhood outreach was accomplished by means of neighborhood association meetings with neighboring homeowners and businesses alike. The project encompassed an 8,000-square-foot retail component on the first floor to complement the existing neighborhood tenant mix.
The completed project consists of 176 luxury apartments featuring condo-grade finishes, granite kitchen counters, stainless steel appliances, simulated wood plank flooring, kitchen islands, washers/dryers, as well as wet bars, and built-in desks in select units. For further convenience, a 345-stall on-site parking garage is available for residential and retail customers. Residents are also provided with controlled access throughout the entire building. This multifamily development also includes a clubhouse for resident events, gourmet kitchen and coffee lounge, 24-hour commercial-grade fitness center, a yoga room, a courtyard with an infinity-edge saltwater pool complete with gourmet barbecue grills, and outdoor seating by a fire pit with large flat-screen televisions.
