Hunt Midwest Breaks Ground on Mixed-Use Project

Published Tuesday, April 4, 2017 4:00 pm

Hunt Midwest and its partners celebrated the official groundbreaking for The Vue, a mixed-use luxury apartment community that will be located in Downtown Overland Park. Built on 2.5 acres at 80th and Marty streets, the $49 million project will include 219 apartments above 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, high-end amenities and secure access to an attached, multi-level parking garage.

"This project re-purposes a previously underutilized site that will attract hundreds of new residents and patrons to support surrounding businesses. While in the early stages of construction, we're already seeing interest in The Vue -- from Millienals to Baby Boomers -- that is adding to the community's excitement in historic Downtown Overland Park," Mayor Carl Gerlach said.

The Vue's amenities were designed to provide residents with opportunities for entertainment, relaxation and enjoyment year-round. Outdoor features include a resort-style pool and poolside bar, lush landscaping, comfortable lounge seating, grilling areas, covered bicycle parking and stunning views of the city from the rooftop deck. Inside, residents can take advantage of high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity, coffee lounge, game room, media room, fitness center, and spacious clubhouse with separate space for private events and meetings. Retail tenants will be selected with special consideration given to those who will enhance the experience of residents for The Vue and Downtown Overland Park visitors alike.

"Hunt Midwest wanted to create an urban living concept that offers chic finishes and conveniences that 'renters by choice' desire, while giving special attention to the building's exterior, ensuring the design reflects the charming character and architectural style of Downtown Overland Park. The Vue's centralized location within the area will allow residents a quick and safe walk to surrounding attractions including the Matt Ross Community Center, downtown Farmer's Market, historic Rio Theater and newly designed Downtown Arts District," Hunt Midwest President and CEO Ora Reynolds said.

Hunt Midwest's development team includes: McPherson Contractors, general construction; Hoefer Wysocki Architecture, architecture and design; Olsson and Associates, engineering services; Bank Midwest, financing; and Greystar, leasing and property management.
