East 9 at Pickwick Plaza

Repositioning a historic landmark for the next generation of urban dwellers

The Pickwick Plaza Hotel, built in 1930, was a downtown KC landmark and frequent retreat of President Harry S. Truman. The historic structure sat vacant and dilapidated for decades before Gold Crown Properties led the stunning transformation into one of downtown Kansas City’s most iconic mixed-use developments. With 260 apartment units, new ground floor retail space, a parking garage and new City Gym location this monumental adaptive reuse project adds new vitality and a substantial infusion of residents and retail services to downtown Kansas City.

Location: Kansas City, MO
Square-Feet: 360,000

Pickwick was designed as a true mixed-use facility combining transit, retail, hotel, and office uses in one facility. Today, the building has been positioned again to attract downtown enthusiasts by offering market rate apartments. One bedroom apartments, approximately 500 sq. ft. each, make up the majority of the 260 planned units. Tenant amenities on ground floor and mezzanine levels include hospitality rooms, street level retail shopping, laundry, recreation/workout facilities, and a pool.

This project could not have been done without partners. Reeves Weideman and his team at Helix really did a great job! Pickwick was part of the piece in bringing revitalization in downtown Kansas City.”
