While Kansas City’s Financial District is home to many of the city’s banks, there is also a growing residential and retail neighborhood. Residents are attracted by the district’s many restaurants and its nearby cultural attractions, including the Midland Theatre and the Kansas City Central Library.
As testament to its new face as a residential area, the district contains the tallest residential building in the state of Missouri, the renovated former Fidelity Bank and Trust building, now known as "909 Walnut", which stands thirty-two stories tall and has 160 luxury apartments for rent.
The area also has many public green spaces, including Ilus Davis Park and Oppenstein Park. Ilus Davis Park hosts a Farmer’s Market each Thursday from May to September.
People looking to rent Kansas City apartments will find that those in the Financial District generally run from studios to two-bedroom units and include some lofts. Pricing is about average for the metro area.
