The Village Cooperative of Lee’s Summit, a 55+ senior living housing community will be coming to Lee’s Summit late summer of 2016. The location is just east of the Lee’s Summit Medical Center at Shenandoah and Battery Drives. The new cooperative community, which is slated to begin construction late summer, will offer 50 spacious, well-designed one and two bedroom homes with private balconies and fully equipped kitchens. Amenities will include a community room, woodworking shop, club room, guest suite, fitness room, raised garden beds, walking trail, while you’re away services and heated, underground parking with a car wash bay – all wrapped up in a step-free, fully secure building. The homes will be fully equipped with all appliances and offer in-home storage, large walk-in closets and individually controlled HVAC systems.
Village Cooperative will be a community of active adults, 55+, who want to escape the hassles of home maintenance and upkeep but want to retain the investment value of home ownership.
Pam Grisafe is the Sales Manager for the Lee’s Summit Village Cooperative and has been impressed with the great interest in this project. “Our sales so far demonstrate that cooperative living is tremendously appealing to seniors—offering a worry-free lifestyle and sound financial arrangement in a community that is small enough to feel ‘neighborly’. The location is ideal too. We’re close to the new Price Chopper opening just west of Todd George and within a 3 mile radius there is an array of shopping, dining, health & fitness services. Easy access on and off Highway 50 is a real plus. Grisafe says, “The members are excited about getting in on the ground floor so they have choice in the home finishes selection process–from how many and where to place phone jacks to changing a door swing and selecting countertops. She adds, “The best thing about this development is the people who’ve joined—they’re a great group of people who act like a big family. Many social activities keep our members busy and it’s wonderful to see so many new friendships being made.”
