OVERLAND PARK, KS (April 21, 2014) - Tallgrass Creek retirement community today announced the addition of Meadowlark Terrace, its new residence building now under construction with 87 apartment homes in 10 new floor plans that vary in size and style from luxury two-bedrooms to more modest one-bedrooms. Seventy-five percent of the new apartment homes are already reserved. Information can be obtained by calling 913-897-2700 or 1-800-893-3118.  
Tallgrass Creek considered feedback about the individual apartment homes when designing Meadowlark Terrace, which will officially open late 2014.  Lantz-Boggio is the architect. Brinkmann Constructors the general contractor.
The new apartment homes have airy layouts and beautiful finishes, including granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and full-size, side-by-side washers and dryers.
"We asked our architect to find ways to offer more open floor plans, as well as keeping several of our 'favorites,'" said Deborah Messmer, director of sales.
The announcement of Meadowlark Terrace comes within weeks of Tallgrass Creek's opening of memory care and post-acute rehabilitation units at its new continuing care neighborhood. The continuing care neighborhood, which opened its first phase late last year with assisted living, now has a total of 104 apartments and suites and brings unprecedented holistic Person-Centered Care assessment to Kansas.
