Multi-million dollar Founders Phase 2 development completed as adjacent street level restaurant and retail open as part of emerging lifestyle changes
Union Hill announces the completion of the platinum-lifestyle Campbell building at 3000 Gillham and the loft-lifestyle McCoy building at 3020 Gillham, with limited-leasing options still available. The new buildings bring more than 75 new apartment home units to the downtown neighborhood. Union Hill is creating a mix of living options with street level retail incorporated, with the opening of the new, street-level Cafe Europa Union Hill and Underdog Wine Union Hill, just steps away in the adjacent and recently-opened McGee building. The new buildings are also part of downtown, in a neighborhood with green space and near other entertainment and dining options.
An official ribbon cutting is planned for Thursday, Dec, 8 at 4:00 p.m. Community and civic leaders will come together to mark the opening of the new apartment home buildings.
The platinum-lifestyle Campbell building is home to 23 units, featuring one and two bedroom floorplans. Luxury amenities include all stainless-steel appliances, gas cooking, granite countertops, and wood-burning fireplaces in select units. Additionally, the Campbell building features a stone facade, including elegant architecture with modern finishes and fully-wired capabilities for all service providers.
The McCoy building offers 56 loft-lifestyle units with large, open floor plans with exposed metal ductwork. Studio, one and two-bedroom floor plans are available all featuring contemporary kitchen finishes, a walk-in kitchen pantry and balconies.
Both buildings offer the best price per square footage available in any comparable downtown living communities. All units include walk-in closets, exterior vented microwaves and a full-size washer and dryer in each unit. Each building is equipped with the latest technology including as Nest thermostats, Google Fiber, AT&T fiber and Time Warner Cable. Amenities include a concierge service, valet dry cleaning, and private parking garages with keycard access and security cameras.
Street Level Restaurant and Retail
The addition of street-level retail and restaurants has created a huge draw to the Union Hill neighborhood with the recent addition of Underdog Wine Co. and Cafe Europa just steps away from residents. Union Hill is currently exploring options with multiple concepts for the 1,400 square-foot space available adjacent to Underdog and Cafe Europa and hopes to announce a new tenant in the upcoming months.
Local ownership, development, management and leadership ensure the success and stability of Union Hill as a neighborhood with dining, entertainment, services and green space. Overlooking Crown Center, Union Hill is near major employers, including Hallmark Cards, Union Station, multiple major law firms, the Federal Reserve and Children’s Mercy Hospital. A short walk from the Crossroads Arts District, Union Hill preserves history and embraces the future of Kansas City with the Kauffman Performing Arts Center, downtown Kansas City and Country Club Plaza as nearby neighbors.
About the Campbell Building
The Campbell building is named after John Campbell, one of the 14 purchasers of the old Prudhomme Estate, the original town site for Kansas City. Similar to the platinum-lifestyle Ragan and Taylor buildings, the Campbell building is based on Chicago’s Lincoln Park. The platinum-lifestyle design reflects classic architecture among the historic homes, townhomes and apartment buildings that define the Union Hill neighborhood.
About the MCoy Building
The McCoy loft-lifestyle building is named after John Calvin McCoy, another original purchaser of the historic Prudhomme Estate. McCoy came to Kansas City in 1830 to help establish “Cantonment Leavenworth”, a large military reservation, and later helped plat the original town of Kansas. Like the loft-lifestyle McGee building, the McCoy building offers 56 units available for rent in addition to 9,000 square feet of retail, restaurant or professional space at the street front level.
