The historic Ambassador building was constructed in 1925 to be the largest apartment hotel in Kansas City. Like the architecture of Country Club Plaza, Ambassador was designed in the Spanish Revival Style, as seen in its painted stucco, decorative tiles, terracotta, tile roofs, and ornamental ironwork. The rooftop garden overlooking the city was often a common hangout for starlets in Hollywood’s Golden Age. 

Hufft renovated the 112 apartments with a clean, modern, and efficient design. Centrally located on one of the most prominent streets in Kansas City, the Ambassador offers convenience and accessibility to The Plaza, downtown, and Westport. The rooftop lounge provides residents with a private space to entertain, relax or work with an unobstructed view to downtown Kansas City.
