Riding the success of its three-month-old One Light luxury apartment tower in downtown Kansas City, the Cordish Cos. announced Monday its plan to construct two towers nearby.
Cordish, the developer of the Power & Light District held a groundbreaking ceremony for Two Light at the work site. The 24-story tower, once it opens in March 2018, will stand just blocks from One Light luxury apartment tower, which officially opened last December. Cordish has also started the clock on Three Light and affirmed its interest in a fourth downtown residential tower.
Executive director of the Cordish Co.’s Power & Light District Nick Benjamin said construction on the Three Light tower will begin prior to the completion of Two, which is expected to take about two years.
At Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony, Kansas City Mayor Sly James praised the towers as part of a continuing revival of the city.
