We have lots of houses in the Brookside/Waldo area but not a lot of newer apartments for rent. That changed over the summer with the opening of Brookside Commons, an upscale apartment project now open at 6551 Rockhill Road.
As a Realtor, I see so many homes with some beautiful, unique decorating styles and furnishings…however the public spaces in Brookside Commons are most impressive for a new build. The style here is not cookie cutter, like so many apartment complexes are. I recently walked through the space with assistant manager Chloe Newell. It was impressive!
“Luxury living is here; there is really nothing else like this in Brookside” Chloe says. Each apartment comes with access to so many amenities: a resort-style outdoor pool, four BBQ grills, resident lounge with fireplace, a gym/yoga studio, game room, electric car charging stations and a dog park. Brookside Commons also has an amazing co-working lounge and conference room, designed specifically with the WFH resident in mind. All of these spaces are comfortable, attractive and welcoming. The Lowery Design Group, based in Prairie Village, provided the décor.
There are three buildings that make up Brookside Commons; two of the buildings are open for occupancy and the third will be finished early next year. Kansas City- based companies Sunflower Development Group and Platform Ventures are developing the project; the space was formerly a surface parking lot for Research Medical Center, part of the Baptist Medical Center campus. Once completed, the project will have 210 units, consisting of studio, one- and two- bedroom units; prices range from $1095 to $2295 per month. Lease options are available from 3 months to 15 months with one month free special on a 13 month lease. Surface parking is available on the property and a gated, covered parking garage is under construction. Each unit has a full appliance package including a washer/dryer; most have a balcony. Parking and internet are available for extra fees and two pets are allowed per unit.
Brookside Commons offers a convenient location; easy access to the Plaza, Westport and downtown; Brookside and Waldo shops and restaurants are within a mile. Chloe is right; there isn’t really anyplace like this in the area for rent. These new apartments are beautiful and the amenties are first class.
