Cool new KC art apartments only cost $1,000 for a 420-square-foot studio

Love art. Really, it’s not so much art that I love as it is being adjacent to art. Makes me feel funky and vibrant. That’s why I’m moving into the ARTerra apartments, which opened yesterday in the vibrant Kansas City Crossroads Arts District, at 2100 Wyandotte (right next to the new Crossroads Hotel). 

About ARTerra, per its website (bolds mine): 

At Arterra, you’ll create a life reflective of your appreciation for culture and passion for art and design, immersed in an atmosphere inspired by an authentically urban aesthetic. Situated on the south end of the Crossroads Arts District, our distinct architecture reflects the essence of  the surrounding community, crafted with a local vibe. 

Actually, I’m not moving into the ARTerra apartments, which would be completely unaffordable for even a successful local artist, much less a lowly local journalist. As downtown evangelist Kevin Collison notes on his blog, CityScene KC, rents are steep, baby! Hey now: 

Rents for a 420 square-foot studio start at $1,050 and the largest (1,550 square feet and up) three-bedroom, two-bath apartments go for over $4,000. And that doesn’t include parking, which is available in an attached garage for $125 per month….

In addition to the studio and three-bedroom units, ARTerra offers one-bedroom apartments ranging from $1,550 (640 square feet) to $2,050 per month (874 square feet), and two bedroom, two-bath units ranging from $2,950 (1,065 square feet) to $3,305 per month (1,465 square feet).

They do look pretty nice, though. Check ‘em out here. Best of luck arranging your canvases and kilns.
