Tutera Senior Living & Health Care Announces $1.5 Million Remodel of Overland Park’s The Atriums
OVERLAND PARK, KS–The Atriums, a resort-style retirement community operated by Tutera Senior Living & Health Care at 7300 West 107th Street in Overland Park, KS, is undergoing a $1.5 million renovation. This month, Tutera will complete phase 1 of a $500,000 remodel of the first-floor common living spaces and begin phase 2, of an expected $1 million remodel of The Atrium’s 203 resident apartments homes.
So far, Tutera has transformed the 50,000-square-foot first-floor common living area into upscale, modernized dining and gathering places for a more active living environment. Amenities and services include an elegant main dining area, upscale community lounges for entertaining, a pub, cards and billiards room, grand piano, reading corner and more. All new furnishings will complete the bright and airy, inviting space. Work began in November 2018.
“For more than 30 years, The Atriums has set the standard for upscale senior living in the heart of Overland Park,” said Mike Levitt, vice president and chief compliance officer at Tutera. “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, Tutera will update finishes within The Atriums’ 168 Independent Living apartment homes, which feature seven different floor plans. The remodel will also include updating the 35 Assisted Living apartment homes. The residences will be modernized with new lighting, flooring, paint and other upscale finishes. Phase 2 work is expected to be complete in the next 12 to 18 months.
“Family is at the heart of everything we do,” said Lucille Tutera, administrator for The Atriums. “The remodel of The Atriums reflects our pride in ensuring the most luxurious lifestyle for our cherished residents and peace of mind for their families.”
Country-club-style amenities and services make The Atriums a sophisticated, yet comfortable community including restaurant-style dining, healthy menu options made to order by in-house chefs, lounges for entertaining, cards, billiards and other social activities, high-end beauty/barber salon, resort-style heated indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna, beautifully landscaped grounds, convenience store, library, reading corner, wi-fi throughout the community, full interior and exterior maintenance of apartment homes, independent heating/air conditioning controls, weekly maid and linen services, transportation services and group tours, fully monitored emergency call system in bedroom and bath, and 24-hour security.
