Barsto Construction officially broke ground on The Villas at Ridgeview Falls, a 237-unit luxury apartment complex on the northeast corner of 119th Street and South Ridgeview Road in Olathe.
Developed by J.A. Murphy Group based in Knoxville, Tenn., The Villas at Ridgeview Falls was designed by NSPJ Architects P.A. and will typify a highly detailed, large scale Tuscan Villa through traditional design elements.
NSPJ brought the vision to life yet maintained "human scale" by using materials true to the original vernacular, according to a release. Visitors will be greeted by lush landscaping at the main entrance, with a single-story club/amenity center just off the main drive for easy access. The rooflines will be sloped to create the sense of a single-family home entrance, opening into a large courtyard that serves as the development's centerpiece.
Additional community amenities include private grilling areas, center pavilion, resort-style pool, fire pit, putting green, and fitness trail. Apartments will include large floorplans with luxury finishes, 9-to-10-foot tall ceilings, and 8-foot tall doors.
Site preparation is underway with plans to go vertical in the first quarter of 2018 and the first units ready for occupancy in the fall.
This is the second project for the team of Barsto Construction and J.A. Murphy Group, which recently completed the $32 million Metcalf Village Apartments at 162nd Street and Metcalf Avenue.
