New luxury, rental-based senior community in Prairie Village will offer upscale residential options with country-club style amenities and services; Groundbreaking event set for June 22
June 21, 2016 (Press Release) - Tutera Senior Living & Health Care will break ground on the new $40 million Mission Chateau Senior Living Community in Prairie Village, a suburb of North Johnson County, Kan. (85th Street and Mission Road). A groundbreaking event for the luxury development with local dignitaries is scheduled at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, June 22.
With completion expected in September 2017, Mission Chateau Senior Living Community will span 18.4 acres to offer the newest, country-club style retirement living community in North Johnson County.
To meet the diverse lifestyle and health care needs of seniors, the rental-based community will offer independent living, assisted living and memory care residential options that exemplify the highest standards in senior living and wellness design, including:
- Luxurious one and two-bedroom apartment homes with upscale architectural finishes and amenities, including high-end appliances, vaulted ceilings and large windows
- Large villas (averaging 3,500 sq. ft.) featuring private garages and private patios
- Multiple restaurant-style dining options with healthy menus created by in-house chefs, as well as a bistro, bar pub, and indoor and outdoor spaces for reserved, intimate gatherings
- Mind-body spa featuring indoor and outdoor heated pools, whirlpools, massage, yoga and other wellness classes and services
- State-of-the-art fitness center, group classes and individual training
- Indoor greenhouse and gardening center
- Concierge and valet services for residents and guests
- Convenient access to "The Village" shopping district with diverse retail, restaurant and entertainment venues
When complete, Mission Chateau Senior Living Community will include more than 200 residential units — independent living, assisted living and memory care — offering upscale, living options and personalized services.
"Mission Chateau represents Tutera's 'inspired by you' mission to offer high-quality residential options suited to seniors' varied lifestyles while also offering residents seamless access to Tutera's integrated health care support services throughout the Kansas City metro area," said Randy Bloom, Ph.D., president and chief operating officer of Tutera Senior Living & Health Care.
To ensure the most innovative design for Mission Chateau Senior Living Community, Tutera utilized its 30 years of experience in providing quality senior living lifestyles throughout the country. Most importantly, Tutera asked its residents and staff what they valued most in terms of specialized services and designed those features into the facility. In addition, Tutera hired studioSIX5, an award-winning interior design firm that specializes in creating "enlightened lifestyles for seniors," as well as the local firms of Nearing Staats Prelogar & Jones Architects (Prairie Village, Kan.) and BHC RHODES (Overland Park, Kan.).
"We are grateful for the persevering support we've received to determine a plan that is best for everyone. It's exciting to officially break ground to bring the highest quality standards in luxury senior living to Prairie Village," said Joe Tutera, chief executive officer of Tutera Senior Living & Health Care. "In addition to building a beautiful community to meet the diverse needs of seniors, Mission Chateau is based on a rental option — unlike other senior communities that require a buy-in or large upfront payment — to give residents more choice and flexibility."
Tutera Senior Living & Healthcare is bringing rental-based and continuum-of-care communities to the Kansas City metropolitan area, both through construction of new facilities like Tiffany Springs Senior Living Community in North Kansas City, Mo., which broke ground on May 25, and through expansion and upgrade plans for its existing Kansas City metro area communities, including Stratford Commons Rehabilitation & Health Care Center in Overland Park, Kan., Carnegie Village Rehabilitation & Health Care Center in Belton, Mo. and The Atriums Rehabilitation & Health Care Center in Overland Park, Kan.
"I am very happy to see Mission Chateau moving forward after significant resident input and compromise by all involved," said Laura Wassmer, mayor of Prairie Village. "Our seniors and their families will benefit from having another quality choice for senior living in Prairie Village."
