The New England Building, constructed in 1886-1887, is located on the northeast corner of 9th and Wyandotte streets in downtown Kansas City. This Landmark Property is a tangible reminder of the substantial investments of eastern capital made in Kansas City during the late nineteenth-century building boom. Once home to Trans World Airlines, it is a rare surviving example of commercial architecture adapted from the Renaissance Revival style. The south and west exterior walls of the New England are constructed of rose colored Springfield sandstone shipped from Massachusetts. A two-story oriel window at the southwest corner of the building has carved stone panels at its base that bear the seals of five New England States. Its architectural design ties the New England to the roots of tradition and provides possibly the earliest example of fire-proof construction in Kansas City.
Within this gracious structure seven floors will be renovated into 32 distinctive apartments. Unit features will include designer flooring, stone counter tops, slate appliances, tile showers, nest thermostats and washer/dryers. In addition, several of the apartments are adorned with cast iron fireplace mantels, large vaults and the oriel window. Building amenities will include a modern fitness studio located within the building’s central vault, the Howard Hughes Lounge, attached garage parking, resident storage and Google Fiber.
