The biggest apartment development to date in the Hospital Hill area of Troost Avenue, 2501 Beacon Hill, has begun pre-leasing and is expected to accept its first residents in July.
The 249-unit apartment project occupies a full block southeast of 25th and Troost and is managed by NorthPoint Development. Work on the $40 million development began early last year.
A temporary leasing center is expected to open in early April at the northeast corner of 25th and Forest, according to Shelby McGuire, community manager for NorthPoint.
“We are proud to be involved with the revitalization of Kansas City’s urban core, specifically the Troost corridor,” McGuire said in a statement.
“2501 Beacon Hill is conveniently located to catch the eye of Hospital Hill activity. We expect to engage with those who frequent this area, whether working or continuing education.”
She added the project also should be appealing to other people interested in living in what is now a reviving stretch of Troost.
The 2501 Beacon Hill project is only two blocks from the new Marcato apartments at 27th and Troost, and a few blocks from the Wonder Shops + Flats redevelopment at 30th and Troost. MAC Properties also is planning a large residential project at Troost and Armour.
The 2501 Beacon Hill development will have 71 studios starting at $879 per month; 106 one-bedrooms starting at $1,099, and 72 two-bedrooms starting at $1,399. The development also will offer loft-style two-bedrooms with skylights.
Amenities include a rooftop pool and sundeck with skyline views; rooftop fire pit; fifth floor hospitality room with kitchen; mid-century modern clubhouse and lounge; coffee shop, fitness center, conference room, dog grooming center and private, gated parking.
The 2501 Beacon Hill development is expected to be entirely finished by September of this year. The architect is DRAW architecture + urban design.
