Welcome Home to Plaza Heights

Aside from the beautiful designs and high-end amenities, Plaza Heights homes offer a rare combination of city living in a suburban setting. This Kansas City neighborhood is within walking distance of many favorite local destinations, and only a short drive away from endless entertainment options, making it the perfect place to call home.

Country Club Plaza

If you’ve spent any time at all in Kansas City, MO, you’re certainly familiar with the Country Club Plaza. With its Spanish-inspired architecture, beautiful fountains, and a variety of high-end retailers and restaurants, it has remained a favorite local shopping destination for decades.

Originally designed and constructed in 1922 by JC Nichols, the Country Club Plaza was the first true shopping center in North America. Over time, it became a cornerstone of Kansas City living with its mix of residential, retail, and commercial buildings.

The “Plaza,” as it’s known by locals, is just down the street from Plaza Heights. Offices, shops, restaurants, and weekend events are all within walking distance. For more information, please visit VisitKC to learn more about all that the Plaza has to offer!


Westport is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s located just north of the Country Club Plaza and Plaza Heights neighborhood between Main Street and SW Trafficway. The area was originally called “West Port,” as it was the westernmost village for settlers traveling along the Santa Fe Trail in the mid 1800s.

Today the neighborhood is known for its eclectic blend of restaurants, trendy boutiques and popular nighttime hot spots. By day Westport buzzes with residents and tourists, but really comes to life at night as the restaurants and bars fill up.

Although much of “West Port” is long gone, today’s Westport continues to charm and entertain modern-day explorers. Homes in Plaza Heights are just a few minutes south of this vibrant Kansas City hotspot – a favorite Kansas City dining and entertainment district.

Kansas City Power & Light District

Downtown Kansas City is just a short trip from the Plaza Heights neighborhood, but with the new Power & Light district, it’s well worth the drive! The $850 million entertainment district covers nine blocks of downtown Kansas City — the largest of its kind in the Midwest – and features a ton of event and entertainment venues, amazing restaurants, and boutique shops.

The entertainment district is surrounded by landmarks and world-class event venues like the Sprint Center, the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, the Crossroads Arts District and more. For more information, directions, or upcoming event details, please visit the Power & Light district website.

Crossroads District

Although it’s located downtown, the Crossroads District is just a short drive from the Plaza Heights neighborhood. Known as Kansas City’s “Creative Neighborhood,” the crossroads is an area of Kansas City filled with art galleries, studios, and event spaces. It’s also home to a number of local hotspots, brew pubs, bars and restaurants.

The Crossroads biggest attraction is certainly “First Fridays.” There’s always a crowd at these monthly events, typically filled with a mix of art shows and live music. And for more formal events, there is also the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in the northwest corner of the district – a world-class facility showcasing symphonies, operas, ballets, and concerts.

Brookside Neighborhood

Just south of the Plaza, you’ll find the Brookside neighborhood — Kansas City’s first suburban shopping area. In fact, the Brookside shops even pre-date the Country Club Plaza! Today this thriving community is home to more than 80 shops, restaurants, and offices, all unique and in keeping with the original neighborhood charm and architecture.

From local boutique shops to popular restaurants and annual parades, the calendar is always full in Brookside. You won’t want to miss the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade, or the Brookside Art show each Spring. There’s also a new Whole Foods in the area. It’s just a quick trip from Plaza Heights, and well worth the drive!
