Affordable New Home Construction in Urban Kansas City

Welcome to the Historic Manheim Park neighborhood nestled between Troost Avenue and The Paseo in Kansas City, Missouri. This vibrant community offers location, convenience, and sought-after urban living near the Country Club Plaza. When you couple that with new, modern luxury homes, it’s truly the Plaza without the Price Tag.

The primary focus of our redevelopment effort in Manheim Park is to seamlessly pair modern home plans with the design of established homes while paying homage to the history of the neighborhood. This includes features like the big front porches typical of Manheim Park homes. We’ve also added modern lifestyle amenities like outdoor spaces with built-in fire pits, grilling stations, and covered decks perfect for entertaining friends and family. Our intent is to offer luxury urban living that is affordable.

Welcome to Historic Manheim Park

Manheim Park was originally developed as a streetcar suburb in the early 1900’s and grew quickly through the roaring 20’s. Troost had a streetcar line and Paseo had a bus line which made the neighborhood very accessible. Back then, most people didn’t own cars, so homes did not have driveways or garages. Typical of streetcar suburbs, the lots were narrow and long, houses had big front porches and the streetcar lines were within walking distance of small stores and neighborhood markets.

Today, the neighborhood consists of both long-time and new residents who are drawn to the area because of the large two- and three-story homes, the signature front porches, and the availability of public transportation and proximity to the Plaza, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the University of Missouri-KC (UMKC) and Rockhurst University.

    We had a great experience with Elevate Design + Build! Sean was super transparent throughout the whole process, and any time we had an issue or wanted something changed we were able to get ahold of him directly which was really nice! The house is BEAUTIFUL, and we are so thankful for everybody at Elevate. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, and we will recommend them to anyone and everyone!!! - Alyssa Kollie
