Cordish Launching Multifamily Projects in KC’s Power & Light District

The Cordish Companies said its $140-million Three Light Luxury Apartments would commence construction this May in the Power & Light District in downtown Kansas City, MO. Construction on the conversion of the historic Midland office building nearby into the 139-unit, affordably priced Midland Lofts will begin this summer. Three Light’s predecessors, One Light and Two Light Luxury Apartments, have remained 95% occupied throughout the pandemic.

Nick Benjamin, executive director of the Power & Light District and managing director of multifamily development for Cordish, called the projects “a sign of new growth and energy downtown following an incredibly challenging year. Each of these projects will be an important step forward in getting back to the business of downtown’s renaissance and will create over a thousand new construction jobs.”

Three Light is slated for completion in May 2023. Cordish expects to complete renovations of the Midland Office Building in late 2022.
