​KANSAS CITY, Missouri – The Opus Group (Opus) announced today the completion of construction on 51 Main, a six-story, luxury mixed-use development in Kansas City’s South Plaza neighborhood. The project, developed and owned by VanTrust Real Estate-related entities, includes 176 units and 8,500 square feet of ground-level retail space.

“We’re excited to mark the completion of 51 Main as we continue to expand our portfolio of multifamily expertise, which includes more than 1,000 units delivered in the last 22 months across five projects in diverse markets, from Kansas City to Minneapolis to Denver,” said Oscar Healy, regional vice president, Opus Design Build, L.L.C. “The Kansas City multifamily sector is booming and we’re pleased to be a part of such a strong market.”

51 Main meets the needs of Kansas City’s low vacancy rates and steady demand for luxurious modern living.

Offering more than 50 unique unit configurations, ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom units, some with additional study spaces, the project is designed to meet a variety of resident preferences.
