The Knickerbocker Apartments are located at 501-535 Knickerbocker Place in the Valentine Neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri. The Late 19th and 20th Century Revival style building was designed by Leon Grant Middaugh and J.A. Rose, and was built in 1909. It is significant for its architecture, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]

The Historic Kansas City Foundation listed the apartments on their 2014 Most Endangered list of buildings in the Kansas City area. They are owned by the Kansas City Life Insurance Company and have an uncertain future. The buildings are vacant and the rehabilitation effort has stalled.[2]
