New Micro-Units Available for Lease Now!

It’s a trend that has been booming on the coasts and now UC-B Properties is bringing that coastal trend to Kansas City – micro-units.  Scholars Row will be open to the public for a special Hard Hat Tour at 11 a.m., Saturday, September 29.

“These units are perfect for graduate students, professionals working in and around mid-town or those who are re-locating to Kansas City and need an affordable, interim place to stay,” said UC-B Owner John Hoffman.  “Compared to other facilities in the area, Scholars Row offers more amenities at a lower cost.”

UC-B Properties started building the $4 million, 50-unit apartment project, on the west side of Troost Avenue between 55th and 56th streets, earlier this year.  The units are expected to be completed this Fall and pre-leasing is now available.

“This is the best time for students who are preparing for the Winter semester to lease,” said Scholars Row Leasing Manager Tash Lancaster.  “Why pay the high price of university boarding, when Scholars Row provides affordable housing, free wifi and utilities and a greater sense of independence?”

Furnished options are available for the units that are modeled after a cruise ship cabin.  They come equipped with queen-size beds, microwave/stove and washer/dryer.  Rent for unfurnished units starts at $850/mo.  Furnished units start at $1,200/mo.

“We are excited to offer these units, helping individuals and companies save money while providing them with a new option with a variety of amenities and close proximity to the best that Kansas City has to offer,” Hoffman said.

The Hard Hat tour is free and open to the public.  Light lunch items will be provided.

Time:                           11 a.m. –  2 p.m.

Date:                           Saturday, September 29

Location:                    Scholars Row, 5522 Troost Ave., Kansas City, MO
