KANSAS CITY, Mo. (June 28, 2022) – The Village at Mission, an upscale, rental-based senior living community operated by Tutera Senior Living & Health Care at 7105 Mission Road in Prairie Village, Kansas, announces the completion of phase 1 of a $6.5 million renovation. A Grand Opening Ceremony and Open House Tour is scheduled for Wednesday, June 29, from 4 to 7 p.m. Tours are also available by appointment.
Tutera acquired The Village at Mission property in June 2021 and in June 2022, completed phase 1 of a 73,000 square-foot remodel of 26 resident apartments and first-floor common living spaces to meet Tutera’s leading-edge brand standards. The residences have been modernized with new lighting, fresh furnishings, cabinetry, flooring, paint and other upscale finishes. The common living space upgrades comprise an abundance of high-end dining and gathering places for social interaction and entertaining. This includes an elegant main dining area, bistro lounge, fireside lounge, fitness center, multipurpose room, activity/cooking room and more. New furnishings complete the bright and airy, inviting spaces.
“Since 1983, Tutera has worked to set the standard for upscale senior living in greater Kansas City and beyond,” said Joe Tutera, CEO of Tutera Senior Living & Health Care. “With the remodel, we are reinvesting in our community to not only benefit our valued residents, but to also continue Tutera’s leadership in delivering the highest-quality lifestyle in a competitive market.”
During phase 2 of the remodel of The Village at Mission, Tutera will add 2,500 square-feet for a state-of-the-art therapy gym, as well as 18,000 square feet for 20 newly constructed private rehabilitation suites on the first floor and 14 memory care suites on the second floor. With the addition, the community will encompass 93,563 square feet offering a continuum of care with assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation and extended stay – all on one campus. Phase 2 work is expected to be complete in 2023.
“Family is at the heart of everything we do,” added Tutera. “The renovation of The Village at Mission reflects our commitment to ensuring the happiness and wellness of our cherished residents and peace of mind for their families.”
