Holtzman told the Business Courier that City Club Apartments CBD Cincinnati will have the best amenities and services but rent will be competitive with other downtown apartments. He said the company is able to do this by renovating a historic building instead of developing a completely new building.

"If you can handle the risk, you can create better product at a very competitive price," Holtzman told the paper.

City Club Apartments is an owner, developer and manager of apartment, furnished short-term and penthouse mixed-use communities. Its portfolio includes about 10,000 apartments in 30 communities, $2 billion in real estate assets and $500 million under development, construction and lease-up in Kansas City, Cincinnati, Chicago, Detroit, Louisville, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and the East Coast.

City Club Apartments plans to develop a site in Kansas City's Crossroads Arts District that includes everything between 19th, 20th, Walnut and Main streets, except for the two buildings at the northwest corner of the block.

The project will add 280 apartment units, a 290-space parking garage, restaurant space and 10,000 square feet of retail on the site where Hereford House once stood. As part of the project, the developer is revamping the vacant Midwest Hotel, a five-story building at 1925 Main St., that will house most of the amenities for the new apartments, including a rooftop pool.

Here's a look at the properties that City Club Apartments will demolish or renovate in Kansas City:

Corrigan Station is going through its own $50 million redevelopment into office and retail space.

While the Midwest Hotel (right) will be preserved, the rest of the buildings on the Crossroads Arts District site will be replaced.
