Cityscape Residential will develop 312-unit apartment community within Village at View High mixed-use project

Lee’s Summit, Mo.—November 28, 2017— Site preparation and infrastructure construction is officially underway for Meridian at View High, a 312-unit luxury apartment community located on the northeast corner of 3rd Street and View High Drive within Lee’s Summit’s 74-acre Village at View High mixed-use development. 

When completed, the mixed-use project along Lee’s Summit’s booming View High corridor will feature walkability, high-end retail and a true “live-work-play” lifestyle desired by Millennials and empty nesters alike.

“Over the next few months, construction crews will build sewers, roads, and a retention pond on the development site. It is exciting to see this important first piece of Village at View High begin to take shape,” said John Bondon, president of Parrot Properties LLC, master developer for the Village at View High.

Parrot Properties chose Cityscape Residential to develop Meridian at View High’s 18 buildings, with vertical construction expected to begin in early 2018 and units available for lease by the spring of 2019. Cityscape Residential is an award-winning developer of luxury multifamily properties.

“The partners of Cityscape Residential have seen the attractiveness of investing in Lee’s Summit since making our first luxury apartment investment in the city over 15 years ago,” said Jim Thomas, Partner, Cityscape Residential. “High quality of life, excellent schools, proximity to good jobs, and thoughtful local leadership have all lead Cityscape to make Lee’s Summit a significant part of our $250 million investment in the Kansas City metro area.”

Overlooking the Fred Arbanas public golf course located within Longview Lake Park, a 4,800+-acre green space with plentiful outdoor recreational opportunities, Village at View High is located in the heart of Lee’s Summit’s View High corridor on the city’s west side.

“It is rewarding to see dirt moving on Meridian at View High, as it is a critical ‘domino’ for the overall Village at View High project,” said Lee’s Summit EDC President Rick McDowell. “A high-quality, plentiful, and diversified housing stock is central to our mission of promoting Lee’s Summit as a model community for economic innovation and growth.”
