Lane4 breaks ground on two senior living communities

LANE4 Property Group began construction on two sites within the Kansas City metro for its newest independent senior living development concept, Novel Place.

The facilities are located at 95th and Metcalf in Overland Park, and Hwy 40 and Hwy 7 in Blue Springs.

“Novel Place is setting a new standard for affordable, yet convenient, independent senior living. Future residents will have access to more amenities without having to break their bank,” said Hunter Harris, Lane4 partner.

Novel Place’s mission revolves around providing each resident with an improved sense of lifestyle rather than just a place to call home. Home health, dining, wellness, and transportation programs are available to future residents; each thoughtfully crafted to enhance the residents’ experience.

“We’re thrilled both Novel Place locations will be joining neighborhoods in Kansas City that already embody a strong sense of community,” Harris said.

Novel Place offers refined common areas, outdoor courtyards, an in-house fitness studio, and multiple gathering spaces for residents and their guests.

Each location features 134 apartments in a three-story building with a variety of studio, one, and two-bedroom floor plans.

“Our ergonomically friendly features, relaxed contemporary coastal design, and passionate commitment to foster a true sense of community are the cornerstones of our mission,” said Deb Wagner, Novel Place vice president of senior living.

“In our minds, it’s not just about constructing a building; it’s about providing a safe and affordable solution where neighbors can enjoy, support, and celebrate each other,” Wagner said.

Omaha-based, NewStreet Properties, LLC, has joined LANE4 as investment partners for both Novel Place locations. Architectural services for each project will be provided by Davidson Architecture and Engineering and construction services will be provided by Centric.

Academy Bank will provide financing for Novel Place of Blue Springs and Security Bank will provide financing for Novel Place of Overland Park.

Both locations are expected to be open by Summer of 2020.
