It’s all coming together at Meadowlark Terrace, Creek’s new residence building, currently under construction with an on-schedule December completion. 

The building’s impressive exterior brick and stonework are finished. Inside, painting and lighting installation are under way. Interior design and exterior fall planting are next, according to Daniel Stapf, general services director at the Overland Park, Kans., Erickson Living community. 

The four-story addition to the Tallgrass Creek campus consists of 87 modern, spacious apartment homes in ten brand new floor plans, as well as several existing, popular, apartment designs currently unavailable in other campus buildings. Custom finishes, granite kitchen countertops, and stainless steel appliances are part of each open, airy residence. 

Toast to Meadowlark Terrace

About 75 future residents of Meadowlark Terrace gathered at Tallgrass Creek recently to socialize and hear the latest about their future home. They enjoyed a tasty buffet and selection of wines, with jazz provided by the Rhythm Room Trio. 

The sales staff, along with ten resident ambassadors, was on hand to welcome guests and answer any questions. Sue LaBelle, hired as a Tallgrass Creek sales associate in January, helped plan the event. She takes over the planning of sales events from Senior Sales Associate Nancy Worthington, who now helps priority list members prepare for their move to Tallgrass Creek. 

Each future resident attending the wine and cheese tasting received a personalized notebook packed with information about their future home. Mary Whitaker, one of the first to reserve a home at Meadowlark Terrace, says she eagerly anticipates moving to her new home. 

“I can’t wait,” says Mary. “I’ve sold my home, and I will move in as soon as I can. It’s a great decision for me.” 

Future Meadowlark Terrace residents Diane and Larry Tolin are very familiar with Tallgrass Creek, as Diane’s father has lived there for three years.  

“And now, we will be residents, too,” says Diane. “It’s the right decision for all of us, and we’re eager to move in.”

Bunny Brown, a resident ambassador helping out at the tasty event, says introducing Tallgrass Creek to future residents is easy.  

“There are really good things happening here,” says Bunny. “And people see it right away.”
