Mission approves plan for active adult apartment complex


After two active adult apartment proposals never materialized on a site along 51st Street in Mission over the years, a Colorado-based developer has received unanimous approval to try, try again.

City Council last month approved Stride DevCo’s final development plans to build Mission Preserve, a 132-unit complex — targeting tenants 55 and older — on 9.6 acres on the southwest corner of 51st Street and Riggs Road. The lots between 51st and Interstate 35 to the north are filled with multi-family buildings.

The two previous projects on the site – The Gables of Mission, a 132-unit complex approved in 1987, and Mission Falls, a 203-unit development approved in 2007 – were both aimed at working adults desiring key-lock accommodation, but neither neither was built, probably because the property is hilly.

The final site plan for Mission Reserve will be submitted to the Planning Commission at a later date for review ahead of construction, which is expected to begin in late summer and be completed by 2027.

The apartments will occupy two four-story buildings — one with 80 units and the other with 52 — separated by a clubhouse, according to city documents.
