yeah, not really a justification for the prices, folks.
i dont know what they rent for now, but the apartments behind the peanut, etc. on Baltimore or whatever have always been super cheap. one of my friends lived in a 2-bed for like $550, although that was about 8 years ago. but hey, it had actual wood floors!
Yea that's what I'm saying. The immediate neighborhood is not upscale at all. Sure if you go a few blocks you can find some upscale housing, but have trouble believing you can find rent even this high. I will be interested to see how well this building rents out. Probably a bunch of really old, rich people.
I wish that the target market was younger people. I want this neighborhood to tie in more with UMKC than Kirkwood, though it is nice that there is money on the west side of the 'hood.
Whatever though, this is still really good for the area. Really hoping the Whole Foods development doesn't fall through.
