Construction will turn the historic Midland office building located in the Power & Light District and adjacent to the Midland Theater into apartment units.

The renovated building will include 117 units available for rent featuring multiple open-concept studio and one-bedroom floor plans. Pricing for the units in The Midland Lofts will begin at $700 per month, according to a news release from The Cordish Companies.

“We are eager to bring the historic Midland building back to life as Midland Lofts,” Marnie Sauls, executive director of Residential Management for Cordish Living, said in the release. “The residential renaissance of downtown Kansas City began with historic conversions and we think it is fitting as we begin this next phase of the renaissance that we are adding both high-rise new construction and a historic renovation of the highest quality to the Power & Light District.”

Amenities at The Midland Lofts will include a street-level lobby, multiple seating areas including a coffee bar and entertainment kitchen at the corner of 13th & Baltimore, as well as a conference room, fitness center, music room, theater, rooftop deck, and more.
