LANE4 Property Group today celebrated the opening of the Home2Suites and Applebee’s at University Village in Kansas City, Kansas, with an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony at the development.
The development marks the fifth project completed by LANE4 in the Rosedale neighborhood of Kansas City, KS.
Formerly a blighted retail/ office center, the project is located just north of The University of Kansas Health System at 34th Street and Rainbow Boulevard. Replacing the dilapidated retail center is an 89-room Home2 Suites by Hilton. The long-standing Applebee’s Grill and Bar has reopened with a new format and redesigned restaurant space. The project totals just more than 65,000 square feet.
Home2 Suites caters to long- or short-term guests, and offers en-suite kitchens, spacious sleeping and living areas, in-room work friendly desks and additional amenities. The Rain Home2 Suites is strategically located to serve the growing need for long-term accommodations for hospital patients and families, visiting students and educators, and working professionals in the mid-town and downtown Kansas City area.
In addition to the suite-style rooms, the hotel offers a heated indoor pool, outdoor grill and lounge areas, two meeting and event spaces, free business services, and an innovative guest laundry/ fitness center.
