Luxurious Copper Ridge Apartments debut in the Northland

Lenexa-based general contractor Neighbors Construction Company, Inc. recently announced the completion of Copper Ridge Apartments, a luxury multifamily construction project in Liberty, MO.

Located adjacent to the expanding 291 Highway retail and entertainment corridor, the new apartment community is fulfilling market demand for high-quality housing in the booming area.

The 394,475 SF project features 292 units in six buildings, plus one central community clubhouse.

Constructed on a sloping hillside, the clubhouse makes a dramatic statement with an infinity-edge salt water pool and an outdoor terrace, compete with a custom grilling station. Clubhouse amenities include a fitness center, theater lounge, pub room, business center, massage therapy room, community kitchen and social hall gathering space.

NSPJ Architects provided design and architecture services for the community and its luxury units, which feature granite countertops, stainless appliances, wood plank flooring, brushed nickel fixtures, contemporary two-tone paint colors, and large windows which bring in abundant natural light.

Many units feature peaceful tree-lined views; others feature “infinity views” of the downtown KCMO skyline.

Project stakeholders include local developer NorthPoint Development in conjunction with GFI Development Company on behalf of New York-based GFI Capital Resources, Inc.

“Neighbors Construction Company did a magnificent job bringing to life an NSPJ Architects-designed multi-family community. We are excited to be one of the newest members of the Liberty community that has such deep roots,” said Andy Ashwal, GFI vice president and senior asset manager.

Ryan Neighbors, vice president at Neighbors Construction, credits the construction “team approach” for the success of the project, which was delivered two months earlier than anticipated despite several challenges including a nearly 50-foot elevation change from one end of the site to the other with a public street right-of-way crossing through the site and an 18% slope on the road leading into the community.

“We were thrilled to complete the community clubhouse and amenities earlier than promised. It is always our goal,” said Neighbors.

“Copper Ridge Apartments was developed for the modern renter who is more sophisticated and savvier than ever before,” said Kimi Medler, Copper Ridge property manager .

“From millennials to empty nesters, our residents are seeking more than a living space, but an entire lifestyle complete with luxury amenities and care-free living.  Together we have created an incredible sense of community, and our residents are consistently commenting on the incredible staff and experiences at Copper Ridge,” Medler added.

Since opening in July 2018, Copper Ridge has averaged 22 move-ins a month. Leasing remains strong with the development reaching stabilization in one year. Additional inquiries can be made through www.CopperRidgeKC.com.
