History group to tour luxury building in Midtown

History lovers can see high living in 1914 in an upcoming tour of the Baltimore Place apartments in Midtown.

The building at 3800 Baltimore, now redone as condominiums, reflects a high level of luxury from its era.

The Historic Kansas City Foundation is conducting a tour for members only on Sept. 29 at 2 p.m.

Each apartment had about 2,300 square feet of living space, complete with things like 10-foot ceilings, marble-and-tile bathrooms, large kitchens and servant quarters.

Past residents included business leaders, artists and other notables.

The architects were Wight and Wight, the brothers from Nova Scotia who designed many of Kansas City’s most prominent neoclassical buildings.

Among their works: the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City city hall, the downtown Jackson County courthouse, the Kansas City Livestock Exchange and the Kansas City Life Insurance building in Midtown.
