The Cordish Companies is proud to announce the grand opening of Two Light Luxury Apartments in the Kansas City Power & Light District. Team members from The Cordish Companies and the Power & Light District were joined by distinguished guests from the City, community and business leaders, the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, as well as executives and team members from JE Dunn Construction Company, lead project architect Hord Coplan Macht, and interior design firm RD Jones to celebrate the opening of the brand new luxury residential tower last week. Two Light joins its sister property, One Light Luxury Apartments, as the second new construction high-rise apartment building in the last 50 years in downtown Kansas City, MO. One Light, which opened in the Power & Light District in November 2015, reached 100 percent occupancy in less than five months.
Since the opening of the nine city block Power & Light District, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, downtown Kansas City has garnered national attention for its urban renaissance. The transformation has included more than $10 billion in public and private development over the last ten years, with more than 5,000 new apartment units and 1,900 hotel keys in development, as well as a newly opened KC Streetcar line. The Power & Light District, developed by The Cordish Companies, is the most visited destination in the state of Missouri welcoming over 9 million visitors per year.
