I lived here for a year from 2015-2016. My experience with this complex was very dis-satisfactory. I ended up having the lease terminated because WPC could not reliably provide water to my unit on the 10th (top) floor. I believe this was an issue due to the water system in the building's age, please read the list of cons below for details.
Good location if you like going out and about in KC, you are less than 10 minutes from the Plaza, Westport, Downtown, Crossroads, River Market, and the West Bottoms. Rent is relatively affordable compared to other places in the city. Management is friendly and usually responsive for routine maintenance requests. Ted is good to work with, very friendly and knowledgeable. Google Fiber is available.
Parking will be an issue for all residents without an assigned space (about 10 total spaces, waiting list took almost a year, +$40/month). The area itself is a little sketchy, but not awful. The building is very old, you will find your unit lacking many basic features you are likely used to such as: kitchen space, cabinet space (none in the bathroom), and there are few electrical outlets in each unit (none in bathrooms). They claim it was renovated within the last 5 years, and this may be true. However, I believe my problems with the water system were due to an un-thorough renovation as far as the pluming is concerned. This was a MAJOR issue that resulted in the termination of my lease. There were days when I had no water at all, no hot water, or no cold water. I could easily go periods of weeks and months without reliable water for bathing and cleaning, it was unsanitary and violated MAC's responsibilities laid out in the lease and as regulated by the State of Missouri. I worked with all levels of management (up to regional) in my attempts to get this problem fixed to no avail. They refused to provide alternative accommodation during my stretches without water, and they refused to refund or pro-rate rent for the times I could not stay in my apartment due to these conditions.
