Will there be apartments at 104th Terrace and Wornall Rd?
By Kathy Feist
Plans for the proposed apartment complex located at the northeast corner of 104th and Wornall was approved by the full city council on September 26. The vote was unanimous with one city councilperson abstaining: Andrea Bough who represents the 6th District where the apartments are located. She cited a conflict of interest. Bough is employed at the law firm that represents the JPL Development.
While the plans for the apartment complex has been approved, the property has yet to be purchased by JPL, according to Stacey Johnson-Cosby, realtor for the property. She says information should be forthcoming on the sale in December. The Telegraph reached out to JPL, but they did not return our inquiries.
JPL Development announced their plans in June to build four three-story buildings totaling 160 high-end apartments on the 6.24 acre lot. Surrounding neighbors, who have fought several proposed developments on the property, were concerned about traffic flow in the area.
Studio, 1- and 2-bedroom apartments will be offered, with rent varying from $1200 to $1800 per month. Apartment sizes will range from 500 to 1137 sq. ft.
Amenities will include a community room, pool, gym, yoga area, barbecue grills, wifi and a dog park.
Units will be constructed with sound-absorbing materials to help mitigate noise. Interiors will include granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and side-by-side washer /dryers. All units will have patios or inset balconies.
Of the 160 units, there will be 9 studios, 103 1-bedroom and 48 2-bedroom apartments. Four different 1-bedroom styles will be available, along with three 2-bedroom styles and two studio styles.
The complex will include 258 parking spaces. All internal roads will be completed before building construction begins.
