By Gabriel Circiog, Associate Editor
The City of Lenexa recently announced the addition of The Domain at City Center as part of their growing vision for the Lenexa City Center. The Lenexa City Council gave preliminary plan approval for the new 203-unit luxury apartment building at their recent meeting.
Located on the southwest corner of 88th Street and Penrose Lane, the new development will feature a mix of efficiency, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units with structured parking. The new construction will also feature a clubhouse with massage, tanning and personal training options for residents.
“We are pleased to see this project move forward,” said Beccy Yocham, director of community development for the City of Lenexa. “The Domain will exemplify the type of high-quality urban development that is a hallmark of Lenexa City Center and will give folks who want to live, work and play in this unique and exciting environment an exciting opportunity to do so.”
Terry O’Leary and Steve Coon, principles of ePartment Communities LLC, a company specializing in developing lifestyle-oriented residential communities and mixed-use developments, commented: “We are committed to providing a much needed mid-rise residential product type to the Kansas City market that provides amenities and finishes necessary to change our customers’ perception of leasing. Our residents of all ages look forward to coming home to a community where all their lifestyle needs are met, from concierge services, exercise facilities and the adjacency to other services within walking distance. Lenexa City Center will provide what our customers are looking for.”
The new residential project is scheduled to break ground in spring 2014, and the first phase of the development is expected to open approximately 15 month later. The construction is expected to be completed in approximately 18 to 20 months.
The Domain at City Center now joins other new developments at Lenexa City Center, including, as previously reported by Multi-Housing News, The Residences at City Center, a $64 million luxury apartment project. Other developments at Lenexa City Center include Renner89@City Center Lenexa, B.E. Smith’s headquarters and the ongoing construction of Perceptive Software’s headquarters.
