Summit at Sixteenth is 24 living units in one continuous building.  The units range from one to four levels and encompass seven different floor plans.

The building's design, distinctive in its mixture of modern stainless steel with warm brick and stucco accents, was created by the architecture firm Gould Evans Goodman Associates LC.  The building was completed in late summer 2004.

Summit at Sixteenth sits on a bluff that offers expansive, unobstructed views of the city.  Its location, slightly northeast of Kemper Arena on the southwest corner of 16th Street and Summit, makes it easily accessible to both the arena and cultural outlets such as the Folly Theater and the new Performing Arts Center.

The metro flats offered at Summit at Sixteenth are step-free one-bedroom condominiums with attached one-car garages and 857 square feet of living space.  The townhouses are built above them and loft-style units complete the mix.  All garages are rear-entry and are on the lowest level.  Four of the townhouses have rooftop decks and balconies that are suitable for roof gardens, the developer said.  All units have some type of outdoor space.

Lofts range from 1,377 to 1,422 square feet of living space and townhouses have up to 2,458 square feet of living space. Several of the units are accessed by elevators.

Summit at Sixteenth is an urban gated community with a European auto courtyard.  The units feature granite countertops, bamboo flooring and stainless steel appliances.   All ceilings are a minimum of 10 feet high and some units have ceilings as high as 15 feet.  Most of the garages are attached to the units.

Homeowner's dues vary from $103 to $340 a month depending on the unit and covers all exterior maintenance and upkeep, water for each unit, upkeep of the common areas and insurance on the building's exterior.

All pets are allowed, with no size restrictions. Summit at Sixteenth's location offers easy access to Kansas City International airport, Crown Center and the River Market areas.  The Country Club Plaza is a 10-minute drive away and the Truman Sports Complex is 12 minutes by car.

The Blue Bird Bistro and popular breadmaker Fervere are right in the neighborhood. Annual events such as the Kansas City Blues and Jazz Festival take place just down the street.

Summit at Sixteenth combines the old with the new while providing convenience and accessibility for those who enjoy spending part of their lives in the city.
