Overland Park commission denies request for extra height on proposed LUX Senior Living apartment

Concerns over the height of a proposed multi-story senior living apartment complex brought many neighbors from the surrounding area to the Overland Park Planning Commission meeting Monday. With the project rezoned, the complex would be able to build three buildings ranging from five to six stories. But commissioners voted to deny the rezoning request, stating the height was too immense for the space. Above, a digital rendering of the finished apartment complex via Overland Park city documents.

At its meeting Monday, the Overland Park Planning Commission voted to deny rezoning for a new senior living  apartments after neighbors in the area expressed several concerns about the complex.

Proposed to be built at the northwest corner of 137th Street and Quivira Road, LUX Senior Living apartments first brought their rezoning request to the commission last month.
