Stonepost Ranch Apartments
This new 291-unit apartment complex in Lenexa, Kansas consists of 21 buildings with 13-14 units each. The complex includes interior garages, carports, a clubhouse, maintenance building, and pool. A tight schedule and several different apartment types and building types made for a challening project design schedule. Several systems were studied to find the cost-to-benefit ratio that the owner was looking for. The clubhouse was studied with the interior designer to provide lighting systems that provided a welcoming environment for residents and prospective residents alike.
