As Tallgrass Creek prepares to welcome community members to its newest residence building, Hummingbird Square, the Overland Park, Kans., community also has its eye on the future. Goldfinch Lane, a fifth residence building on the 65-acre campus, has broken ground and should see completion by fall 2018.

A look inside

Earlier this year, Tallgrass Creek’s sales team welcomed about 50 visitors to a lunch and learn event. 

Sales Counselor Elaine Bahr presented colorful schematics and information about both Hummingbird Square and Goldfinch Lane, while guests enjoyed a chef-prepared luncheon of fresh spinach-kale salad; a choice of boneless, braised short ribs or grilled swordfish; glazed carrots; and mashed Yukon potatoes. 

During her presentation, Bahr also stressed the importance of joining Tallgrass Creek’s priority list. 

“Priority list members are first to see the location and floor plans of all new apartments, which means they have a great opportunity to reserve the home they want, where they want it,” she said. 

Two great choices

The four-story Hummingbird Square residence building is in the final stages of preparing for future residents and features 108 new apartment homes in 18 different designs, including 7 never-before-seen floor plans. It connects via a climate-controlled walkway to Bluebird Crossing, one of the original residence buildings at Tallgrass Creek. 

Goldfinch Lane, currently under construction, will add 78 spacious apartment homes to the campus. Priority list members will be able to choose from 12 different designs, including previously sold-out floor plan styles back by popular demand. 

Goldfinch Lane will house a large, multiuse community room that can be reserved for meetings or personal gatherings. 

With interest at Tallgrass Creek at an all-time high, Bahr says the sales team frequently hears from many people who missed an opportunity to reserve the home they wanted at Hummingbird Square.  

“Goldfinch Lane offers that opportunity along with plenty of time to plan an organized move,” says Bahr. “Also, those who reserve in Goldfinch now will have choices of interior selection packages that won’t be available when the building is completed.”


 

What is the priority list?

The priority list is composed of people planning a move to an Erickson Living community, such as Tallgrass Creek. Priority list members submit a fully refundable $1,000 deposit and $150-per-person, nonrefundable application fee and that date becomes their priority list date. Once the preferred floor plan becomes available, the sales team gives first right of refusal to priority list members based on their joining date.  

“Getting a spot on the priority list is key so you have the option of accepting the home you want,” says Elaine Bahr. “Priority list members are also invited to social and informative events at Tallgrass Creek. They’re a great way to meet and mingle with so many others who call this active community home.”
