For those who love the walkable conveniences and lively communities that come with city living, but are looking for some more suburban amenities, like spacious parks and peaceful neighborhoods, come fall in love with Brookside. This historic Kansas City neighborhood has repeatedly been named the best place to live in south KC for the past 100+ years. Striking architecture, charming streets, eclectic shops, amazing restaurants, and so much more make Brookside the perfect mash-up between laid back suburb and vibrant city.

McLain’s Bakery

The Romanelli Reserve is Brookside’s newest luxury apartment building. Each unit is complete with open floor plans to accommodate your lifestyle and elegant, high-end finishings, so you can feel right at home the moment you walk in the door. This is your home base – the perfect place to relax, reflect, and return to after you spend your days exploring all the wonders of Brookside.

Picture this – it’s a sunny Saturday morning. You wake up and take a short stroll down the street, stopping at McLain’s Bakery for a fresh-out-of-the-oven pastry and a cup of coffee. Next, a quick workout down the street at City Gym, and then a cool down walk on the Trolley Trail, KC’s historic – and most inviting – walking trail.

Brookside Farmer’s Market

After a quick wardrobe change back at the Reserve, you ride your bike a few blocks down to the Brookside Farmer’s Market. At the market, you pick up fresh produce and visit with local growers and makers, and then head over to meet up with friends at Brookside Barrio and enjoy Mexican-inspired brunch dishes. Then it’s off to walk, talk, and shop while wandering through the eclectic mix of Brookside Shops. You can’t help but take some time to admire street after street of Dible Tudors, Airplane Bungalows, and Colonial Revivals on your way home to the Romanelli Reserve.

Later in the day you head a couple of blocks south into Waldo and stop in at the Well to catch your favorite team on TV while relaxing under the sun on the rooftop patio. Night comes and your elegant evening plans include a meal for two at Plate in the newly redeveloped Brookside East area. At Plate, enjoy modern Italian cuisine with a glass (or two!) of superb Italian wine.

What will your days in Brookside look like once the Romanelli Reserve is your home? The possibilities are endless!
