Arnold, Yarco Near Completion of Passive House Apartment Project in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Arnold Development Group and Yarco Development are nearing completion of Second + Delaware, a 276-unit apartment community in Kansas City’s River Market district. The project will be the largest Passive House development in the world, according to the developers. Passive House means that the building uses 80 to 90 percent less energy than conventional buildings with a focus on indoor air quality. The Passive House Institute in Darmstadt, Germany, developed Passive House best practices.

Whereas most multifamily buildings have double-glazed windows, Second + Delaware features triple-glazed windows. The extra glass layer, combined with a highly insulated frame, keeps the interior of the window within two degrees of the interior air temperature. In addition, a dedicated outside air system draws fresh air from outside and circulates it into living spaces. A ventilation system ensures air quality.

The first residents are set to move into the units in October. Amenities include a saltwater pool, fitness and yoga room, conference room, bike storage and rooftop garden beds. Yarco will serve as property manager. Monthly rents range from $1,300 to $3,500 with water, trash and sewer included. As the name suggests, Second + Delaware is located at the intersection of Second and Delaware streets.
