Earlier this month, architectural and interior design firm Rosemann & Associates, PC announced that construction of the 42 unit, independent senior living community in Kansas City, Mo. known as D.A. Holmes II Senior Apartments has been completed and 100 percent occupied. The owner, D.A. Holmes Senior Housing II, L.P. developed the $4.9 million, affordable senior housing project that contains common areas, office space, a craft room, a fitness center, laundry facilities, a media library, a hair salon, and a home theater for residents. The project, located at 3020 Benton Boulevard in Jackson County’s Sante Fe Place Historic District, was funded by 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credits provided by the Missouri Housing Development Commission. Rosemann designed the new building to compliment its historic surroundings by pulling elements such as a cast stone base and varied roof heights used on the existing school structure located on the same campus. In 2004, the school was renovated into elderly apartments during phase one by a separate ownership entity.
“We exceeded our occupancy projections for three reasons facilities amenities, management and location,” says Donald Rosemann, NCARB, AIA, DBIA. “The existing school provided us with an opportunity to create a larger senior campus where residents have more green space to socialize and interact.”
