Construction underway on new apartments
Construction is well underway on Starkey’s new 22-unit apartment complex at 591 N. McComas, a significant expansion of the Semi-Independent Living Program. Completion is expected by the fall.
Each apartment will have 625 square feet of living space, including a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining area, living room and a washer and dryer. The main building will have 16 apartments and a community room, while two smaller buildings will have three apartments each.
Starkey representatives met this week with individuals planning to live in the apartments. Starkey opened its first apartment complex in 2005, for 15 individuals; since that time, there has been a lengthy waiting list for individuals who wish to have additional apartment options. The new apartments are being financed by Bank of Kansas and built by Ink Construction. Don Folger and Associates is the architect.
