44 Washington

The intersection of art and architecture

Nestled between the shopping and entertainment districts in the heart of Kansas City lies 44 Washington, a stunning residential complex that broadens the horizon of what amenities mean for today’s urban apartment-dweller. Through their partnership with MG2, 44 Washington has designed a community setting that embraces local art, history, and regional pride while sparing no expense in exceeding the expectations of its diverse range of tenants.

Working hand-in-hand with local contractors, MG2 sourced as much artwork, materials, finishes, and furniture from nearby vendors as possible. Calling “The City of Fountains” home, the community spaces embody this theme, and with numerous art galleries just around the corner, inspiration was abundant. Custom wall coverings decorate the corridors, including one that pays homage to recent Super Bowl Champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. Within the residences themselves, carefully selected finishes and materials were chosen from regional businesses to embrace the varied tastes of a diverse community of residents.

Throughout the transition from their previous interior design firm, MG2 seamlessly integrated with the client’s team, staying true to their vision, and elevating the integrity of the final design while delivering an exceptional residential experience on schedule.

A true testament to 44 Washington’s luxury-level offerings and community-centric design, the first unit leased in the building was the penthouse suite, an exceedingly rare feat for apartment complexes, regardless of location. The building opened its doors to new tenants in May of 2020 and raised the bar on residential living and holistic wellness in Kansas City and beyond.
