Village Shalom plans $47 million expansion in Overland Park

Village Shalom has put a $47 million price tag on the first major expansion of its Overland Park continuing-care retirement community since 2000. Construction, scheduled to begin in spring 2017, includes new apartments and villas, a freestanding memory care community, a new dining and entertainment area, and a new rehabilitation center. The nonprofit retirement complex, sponsored by the Kansas City Jewish community, will also modernize its facilities. Construction is expected to be completed by fall 2018.

SFCS, an architecture firm based in Roanoke, Va., that specializes in retirement communities, will design the project. St. Louis-based PARIC Corp. is the general contractor. Matt Lewis, Village Shalom’s president and chief executive, said many of the upgrades respond to “the changing needs in our industry and the reality of a highly competitive industry.”
