Baltimore-based The Cordish Companies has unveiled Two Light, the second new construction high-rise apartment building in downtown Kansas City, Mo., to open in the past half century. The first was Two Light’s sister property, One Light. Both luxury apartment communities are located in the city’s nine-block Power & Light District.

Situated at the corner of Grand Boulevard and Truman Road, the $120 million Two Light features 296 units. The structure includes 18 floors of one- and two-bedroom and penthouse apartment homes, a seven-story, 499-space apartment garage and 3,100 square feet of retail space occupied by Power Life Yoga Barre Fitness.

Two Light also features more than 16,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space. Among the amenities are an outdoor infinity-edge pool, grilling stations, cabanas, indoor-outdoor bar, belvedere floating sundeck, indoor heated pool and spa, demonstration kitchen, indoor-outdoor private event room, club room with big-screen TV, quiet lounge, fitness center, conference room, building sommelier, 24-hour lobby attendant and full suite of concierge services.

An extensive array of artwork on display at the property, including murals, photography, portraits and sculpture, celebrates the past, present and future of Kansas City.

Two Light Luxury Apartments adds an exciting layer of 24-7 energy to the Power & Light District,” said Nick Benjamin, The Cordish Companies vice president of development and multifamily housing & executive director of the Power & Light District. “Like One Light, Two Light was designed to offer a luxury, amenity-rich lifestyle in an elevated urban environment. Residents at Two Light will have access to exclusive, top-of-the-line amenities, all within steps of the multiple dining, entertainment and cultural offerings of the Power & Light District and downtown.”

Celebrating 10 years

During its 10-year history, the city’s Power & Light District has seen more than $10 billion in public and private development, including the development of more than 5,000 new apartment units and 1,900 hotel rooms and the opening of a new streetcar line. The Cordish Companies is the developer of the Power & Light District.

On behalf of my family and our entire team at The Cordish Companies, we are excited to celebrate the grand opening of Two Light Luxury Apartments and honored to continue to play a role in the forward momentum of downtown Kansas City,” said company vice president Blake Cordish.

Like its sister property, One Light, Two Light was designed to rival the quality and amenities of any residential community in the country. We are extremely proud of what we have delivered with Two Light, and know that it will be a vibrant addition to the Power & Light District and the Kansas City skyline for decades to come.”
