The beat goes on as new residents move daily into their modern, new apartment homes at Meadowlark Terrace, Tallgrass Creek’s newest residence building. The spacious residence building began welcoming residents in November. With only a handful of elegant apartments still available, the halls are buzzing.  

The four-story addition to the Overland Park Erickson Living community consists of 87 apartment homes; ten brand-new floor plans; and several existing, popular apartment designs sold out all over the campus. 

Dynamite decor

Custom finishes, granite kitchen countertops, and stainless steel appliances are part of each open, airy residence. People who choose a home at Meadowlark Terrace enjoy the comfort of a modern home with convenient access to all the amenities and services of Tallgrass Creek’s 65,000-square-foot Audubon Clubhouse. 

Meadowlark Terrace connects to the Audubon Clubhouse by a climate-controlled walkway that leads right to the community’s popular Sunflower Bistro, a lively lunch and happy hour spot. The upscale Blue Sky Restaurant, where residents can enjoy dinner each evening, is also nearby.

The corridors of Meadowlark Terrace feature contemporary, warm-toned colors, modern low-pile carpets, vibrant artwork, and unique wall sculptures. There are sitting areas throughout so residents can relax or meet for a chat. 

Much to experience

Betty and Jack Jury moved to their new Washington-style floor plan in Meadowlark Terrace that includes two large bedrooms, two baths, and a bright sunroom. The Jurys moved in February from nearby Leawood and are very positive about their new home.

“We are glad to be living here,” says Betty. “The surroundings are lovely, the people are very friendly, and it’s just an overall good decision for us at this time in our lives.”  

The Jurys, along with other new Meadowlark Terrace neighbors, are busy familiarizing themselves with the community’s resident-run social and academic clubs, fitness center, indoor heated pool, convenience store, creative arts studio, woodworking shop, computer stations with high-speed Internet, hair salon, and on-site medical center. 

Sales Counselor Judy Baxter has met and worked with almost every resident moving to Meadowlark Terrace. She enjoys their reactions after they have lived in their new homes for a few days.

“Many of the new residents drop by my office and are happily surprised to learn about an activity or amenity they didn’t know about,” says Judy. “There really is something for everyone here.”
