Sonoma Plaza Incorporates Luxury Living in an Upscale Community Environment

By  0 Comments

Locally owned firm Oddo Development has begun construction on its $225 million project, Sonoma Plaza, in Lenexa, Kansas. Located on the southeast corner of I-435 and 87th Street, just east of Lenexa City Center, this beautiful 85-acre development will consist of retail shopping and restaurants as well as three luxury apartment communities with 1,000 homes.

Residents will enjoy the convenient urban lifestyle with walkability to shops and restaurants while still having the quiet luxury of suburban living surrounded by lush, spacious greenspace and ponds. McKeever’s Marketplace will anchor the 30-acre retail center with complementing shops and restaurants.

Outstanding Amenities
Walking paths will lead residents to the luxury garden-style apartment community, Sonoma Hill. This 322-apartment-home community will offer spacious open floor plans with one- and two-car direct-access garages, high-end finishes such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, tile baths, vinyl wood-plank-style floors, open kitchens for easy entertaining and private balconies and patios.

Sonoma Hill features an array of amenities for resident enjoyment and entertainment, including concierge services, resort-style saltwater pool, fitness studio with on-demand fitness classes, cycling studio, entertainment kitchen with lanai, pub room, poolside barbecue grill, curbside trash pickup and community gardens. All these luxuries are offered in a smoke-free community.

A Neighborhood Feel
In addition to the plethora of amenities within the community, its premier location is within walking distance to local flair to ensure its welcoming environment. The Lenexa Community Center and the newly opened indoor farmers’ market are a short walk away from these spacious and well-appointed apartments. It’s luxury living on 25 acres with easy highway access.

“Sonoma Hill will range from $1,100 to $2,000 a month,” shared Rick Oddo, President and CEO for Oddo Development. “At Sonoma Hill, we take pride in our development and neighborhood. It starts with an inviting landscape, thoughtful design, extraordinary amenities and first-class service that come together to create an unparalleled living environment, making it the perfect place to call home.”

Local Ownership
Creating and managing this ideal community is Oddo Development, a family-owned business based in Lenexa. The company’s award-winning team is committed to excellence and has hired local architectural firm NSPJ for the multifamily project and Klover Architects for the retail center plaza. “We have put together great team, each experts in their perspective fields, and we have been working together to create the perfect community,” said Rick Oddo. The owners strongly believe in investing in the growth and stability of the Kansas City metro.

The lavish offerings at Sonoma Hill are just now under construction under the leadership of Ryan Powell, Director of Construction for Oddo Development, with the first residents to take residency in July 2018. “Now is the time to contact the helpful and knowledgeable team at Sonoma Hill for a personal appointment to review the floor plans and offerings of the 322 homes that will be available,” said Tamara Gladden, Senior Community Manager.

“Our company was founded by entrepreneur Frank Oddo in 1961, with Citywide Maintenance Company, a janitorial company, servicing the Kansas City downtown area. It has since grown into a full-service maintenance corporation across the United States,” shared Jeannette. “In 1966, Frank expanded his business into real estate investment and property management, constructing his first commercial development and thus launching Oddo Development. Rick Oddo serves as President and CEO of Oddo Development, which has constructed and currently owns and manages over a million square feet in commercial real estate, several multi-family communities and has developed residential communities in the Kansas City market.”

Commitment to Excellence
The company will bring all its experience from the previous developments to ensure the success of Sonoma Hill. According to Jeannette, the Oddo team is committed to upholding their strong reputation, and the owners are steadfast toward making this community the best. “We are proud to have local owners who take pride in their work and are very hands on in the development of the project as well as the community.”

“We are focused on delivering a quality product and a warm family feeling in our services because we are a family company and know the importance of a home to individuals and communities. We’re genuine and sincere in our efforts, and we want to find people the perfect home,” noted Jeannette. “We offer a superior customer service experience for our residents delivered with a spirit of individuality along with luxurious floor plans and extraordinary amenities to create a perfect environment to call home.

“We are a local company, and Oddo Development, as the creator of Sonoma Hill, will manage the community. We don’t build to sell; we build to invest in the community. Sonoma Hill offers a luxury lifestyle and a dedicated first-class management team.” ■
