Former Chief’s General Manager Carl Peterson may be long gone from river city, but his Country Club Plaza penthouse was just listed for sale for a cool $4.25 million. The 4800 square foot pad features three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a 1000 square foot terrace, and super high-end finishes.
The building at 433 Ward Parkway is quite the party pad. The adjacent penthouse belongs to Annette Bloch, widow of H&R Block co-founder of Richard Bloch. Other tenants include developer Robert Esrey, philanthropist Beth Smith, Central Exchange president Ellen D’Amato, former H&R Block CEO Frank Salizzoni, and other assorted business and society types. Former Chief’s head coach Herm Edwards still owns a condo there as well.
433 Ward sits on the south bank of Brush Creek, next door to the Intercontinental Hotel and directly opposite the Granfalloon and Baja 600. Unit 7-W is the most expensive property currently for sale in the city limits, and third in the metro area behind the $6.7 million Mission Hills home of former Marion Labs CEO Fred Lyons and the $4.7 million Lee’s Summit house of developer David Burkart. Taxes on Peterson’s pad are about $18,000 a year, as it’s one of the few condo projects without a TIF or abatement.
