About the Community

The Newbern holds 108 studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units with rich, dark laminate wood floors throughout, black granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and central heating and air. The Newbern, formerly the Peacock Hotel, consists of two separate nine-story towers bridged in 1925 by a Sullivanesque Style connecting hall. The original triumphal terra-cotta archway still crowns the exterior entry and extends through the lobby as a highly ornate plaster barrel vault, while a buff-colored marble terrazzo floor seamlessly fuses two towers together. The Newbern, a local landmark as designated by the Landmark Commission of Kansas City, is one of the most architecturally significant buildings we have restored in Kansas City. In rare and true Sullivanesque Style, The Newbern's details are exceptional. The leaded-art glass transom over the main entrance, cut-and-dressed limestone, and carved terra cotta sills and stunning plaster ornament are some of the features of this eye-catching and remarkable building. Amidst Midtown, The Newbern embodies unassuming grandeur- comfortable, spacious and stately. Centrally located in one of Kansas City’s most dynamic areas, come experience The Newbern and be a part of a thriving and diverse community of residents.

The Newbern is part of the Mac Properties community of apartments in Midtown KC. Living here also means that you can choose to pay a nominal fee to have access to the Mac Neighborhood Amenities like The Gymnasium and The Carriage House Pool. See more at

Mac Properties Move-In Survey

“Steven gets things done! Really happy with the move!”



Mac Properties Move-In Survey

“I worked with Alicen and cannot explain how pleased I am with how she handled me and my situation. When I first came into the office it was under stress but after explaining my situation she quickly got to work and was professional and a pleasure to work with. While keeping both mine and Mac’s interest at heart she connected me with multiple options and was hands on throughout the duration of the transfer until the move. Again I cannot say enough how happy I am with this experience. Thank you Alicen and Mac properties for making what started as a terrible situation and turning it into a completely amazing one.”
