Summit Square ribbon cutting celebrates record leasing activity

NorthPoint Development and project partners officially cut the ribbon Thursday at Summit Square, a 308-unit luxury apartment complex located within Lee’s Summit’s thriving Summit Tech corridor.

Summit Square includes seven buildings and a clubhouse with outdoor amenities such as outdoor terrace with salt water pool, custom grilling station and covered veranda with a gas fireplace. Indoor clubhouse amenities include a lounge, kitchen/gathering space, fitness center and spinning studio, salon, massage room, media room and conference room.

Neighbors Construction served as general contractor for Summit Square, its 14th project for NorthPoint. NSPJ Architects provided design and architecture services.

"NorthPoint and NSPJ have once again outdone themselves with the design of this property and it shows by the record-breaking lease-up we have witnessed. It's truly amazing,” said Aaron Neighbors of Neighbors Construction.

Summit Square is on track to be the fastest lease-up of any project Neighbors Construction has built for NorthPoint, with five of the seven delivered buildings 90 percent leased. 

“Our residents are raving about the quality of the product, spectacular amenities, the outstanding management team and this amazing location,” Community Manager Pam Lakey said. “In my 27+ years on site in the Kansas City apartment rental market, I have never been a part of something this special.”

Tuscan design makes a comeback in new Barsto multifamily project

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, 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 third 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.
