Live Outside The Lines.
Within the heart of the vibrant Crossroads District, stands the
nearly 120 year-old Emery, Bird, Thayer Co. Warehouse building,
known today as the EBT Lofts. The structure is noticeable through
its sienna-colored bricks and large proclamation of its place in
Kansas City history. The EBT Lofts consists of six stories with a
grand collection of one and two bedroom floorplans, with washer and
dryer hookups. Due to its central location, the EBT lofts have
spectacular views throughout and all units feature heavy timber
ceilings and colorful brick walls. Community amenities include a
full fitness studio complete with a sauna and a Club Room.
Moreover, the EBT Lofts have a courtesy patrol, a secured entry and
gated parking is also available for rent to residents. The EBT
Lofts was built in 1899 with its original purpose as the warehouse
for the legendary Emery, Bird, Thayer Dry Goods Co. located along
Petticoat Lane, a two-block span famously known as Kansas
City’s fashion district during the horse and buggy era of the
early 1900s. The upscale department store featured men, women and
childrens’ clothing as well as home goods such as soaps and
linens. Both the department store and warehouse were designed by
the prolific Kansas City architecture firm, Van Brunt & Howe.
Nightlife spots, desired restaurants and trendy destinations are in
close proximity to the EBT Lofts. During warmer months, Kansas City
residents flock to the Crossroads District to experience
“First Fridays”, where every first Friday of the month
features food trucks, performance art, exhibits and live theater
productions on public streets and sidewalks. Additionally, the
breathtaking Kauffman Center for Performing Arts is located to the
west and the Power & Light District sits just to the north.
Egress by highway is possible via the Downtown loop of I-670, just
one block north and includes access to major interstates and
freeways. Metro bus stations and streetcar stations along Main
Street are available two blocks to the west. With its considerable
historical Kansas City lineage, location and gorgeous interiors,
the EBT Lofts showcases what cosmopolitan living is all about.
