The halls of Meadowlark Terrace, Creek’s newest residence building, are buzzing as residents move into their modern, new apartment homes. Meadowlark Terrace opened its doors in November, and with more than 90% of the spacious apartments reserved, the activity level is ongoing and energizing. 

The four-story addition to the Erickson Living community in Overland Park, Kans., consists of 87 apartment homes, ten brand new floor plans, and several popular existing apartment styles currently unavailable on campus. Custom finishes, granite kitchen countertops, and stainless steel appliances are part of each open, airy residence. Meadowlark Terrace residents enjoy the comfort of a modern home with convenient access to all the amenities and services of Tallgrass Creek’s 57,000-square-foot Audubon Clubhouse. 

Meadowlark Terrace is just a short stroll through a climate-controlled walkway that leads to the clubhouse’s popular Sunflower Bistro, a lively lunch and weekly happy hour gathering place, and the Blue Sky Restaurant, Tallgrass Creek’s upscale restaurant where residents can enjoy dinner each evening. 

“It’s all so modern and beautifully furnished,” says Jinny Ruppin, who was among Meadowlark Terrace’s first residents. 

In addition to exploring their new surroundings, Meadowlark Terrace residents are learning about Tallgrass Creek’s many social and educational activities, resident-driven clubs and committees (more than 60), fitness center, exercise classes (19 each week), and active aquatics program. It’s all compiled neatly in the community’s monthly, jam-packed activities calendar.     

More to come

New residents are not the only busy people at Tallgrass Creek. With only a handful of apartment homes still available, Tallgrass Creek’s sales team is busier than ever. 

“Now that Meadowlark Terrace is open, we’re getting even more calls from people wanting tours and information,” says Judy Baxter, Tallgrass Creek’s sales counselor and personal moving consultant. “People are eager to see the new apartments and grounds.”  

Future residents frequently stop by Judy’s office to see the interior design board featuring the latest in warm-toned wall colors and modern, low-pile carpet choices for Meadowlark Terrace’s corridors and gathering areas. 

“It’s just a very busy time,” says Baxter. “With the popularity of Meadowlark Terrace and the economy continuing to improve, I can see a scenario with even more residences added in the future.”
