“Kansas City’s East Crossroads district is an eclectic neighborhood filled with vibrant street art, trendy restaurants and chic galleries,” said Jaime Masters with Leroy Allen Fine Art. “The Artistry brand fits perfectly within the city landscape as it continues to bring a unique presence in the East Crossroads neighborhood. We are excited to work with Milhaus on this project as it helps showcase local Kansas City artists on a permanent basis and expose residents to their artwork daily.”

Two murals are featured prominently on the property. Spaceship Zulu, a local Kansas City artist, is creating the public-facing mural at the property’s main entrance on 19th and Oak Street. Another Kansas City local, Michael Toombs, is creating the largest mural on-site that can be seen from the pool area.

Conveniently located in the East Crossroads neighborhood, Artistry KC is joining the downtown residential revival. Artistry KC sits a block from the 18th St. corridor and is surrounded by the neighborhood’s best local eateries, shopping and entertainment.

“Artistry KC is within walking distance to the KC Streetcar and steps away from 18th St.,” said John McGurk, Vice President of Development for Milhaus. “We’re excited to join and become big supporters of this neat local scene and introduce new residents to the area.” 

Milhaus partnered with Dwell Design Studio, DRAW Architecture and SK Design Group, Inc. to bring Artistry KC to Kansas City, the third location in Milhaus’ Artistry brand collection.
