Five-story apartment project on old Mission Bowl site breaks ground 7 years after fire


Sunflower Development Group

Construction of a new luxury apartment complex is officially underway on the long-vacant site of the former Mission Bowl in downtown Mission. The abandoned bowling alley at 5399 Martway Street — which was gutted by fire in 2015 — was torn down last year, and on Wednesday, developers, city officials and investors gathered for an official groundbreaking ceremony for the apartment project replacing it, now dubbed The Residence on Rock Creek.

Kansas City-based Sunflower Development group is building a five-story apartment complex with 176 units on the site.

  • The apartment complex has previously been referred to as the Mission Bowl Apartments but has now been renamed The Residence on Rock Creek.
  • Developers have committed to reserving 20% of units for lower income residents earning up to 60% of the average median income in the Kansas City metro.
  • Seven of the 176 units will be live/work units, designed for people who work from home.
