Roeland Park gets more details about potentially ‘generational’ development along Roe Avenue


Sunflower Development Group

Sunflower’s Principal Jason Swords said the details of the mixed-use apartment complex — with retail and a restaurant on the main level — should be similar to what the developer is working on at the former Mission Bowl site in neighboring Mission.

Although Roeland Park has yet to approve a final land-sale agreement, Swords presented Sunflower’s vision for the site at Monday’s council meeting.

Below are some details of what could come of the former pool site:

  • Four levels of concrete, including three levels of a parking garage built into the cliff.
  • More than 300 parking spots inside the garage, and 41 surface level parking spots.
  • Four levels above concrete with 220 apartment units ranging in size from 670 square feet to 1,200 square feet.
  • A rooftop pool and 4,560 square feet of commercial space.

Swords said Sunflower estimates 20% of units will qualify as affordable using 70% average market income.
