Reworking Plans for The Residences on Woodsonia


Sunflower Development Group

Sunflower Development Group is seeking approval from the City Council to rezone approximately 38 acres located south of 83rd Street, between Woodsonia Drive and Monticello Road, to make way for The Residences on Woodsonia housing project.

Initially proposed as 240 apartments in 10 three-story buildings on the northern half and 62 townhome units in 11 four- and six-plex buildings on the southern half, Sunflower has now revised its plans. The new proposal replaces the townhomes with 62 duplex units, which will be constructed on individual lots along the site’s south portion. These duplexes will be situated closer to the southern property line near existing single-family homes and will have a larger footprint than the original townhomes.

The apartment component of the project remains unchanged, offering a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units ranging from approximately 700 to 1,000 square feet. Amenities will include an outdoor pool, clubhouse, pickleball courts, and a dog park area.

A future extension of 86th Street is planned to connect Woodsonia to Monticello on the east, effectively dividing the multifamily project into two segments.

The site is bordered by city sports fields to the north, existing single-family homes in the Watercrest Landing neighborhood to the south, Westside Family Church to the west along Woodsonia, and the Powder Creek Shooting Park to the east across Monticello.

Further southwest, at the northwest corner of 89th Street and Woodsonia, Oak IQ Investments is developing more than 500 apartments adjacent to Kansas Highway 7.

The City Council is scheduled to review the rezoning request and preliminary site plan for The Residences on Woodsonia on March 19. Sunflower is collaborating with Kansas City-based architect Rosemann & Associates and Overland Park-based MKEC Engineering Inc. to complete the project.
