Urban North, a Refined Developments Community, brings a new concept of living to Kansas City by carefully combining modern and energy-efficient homes in a suburban setting. Located off North Oak and 100th St., Urban North will feature 24 single-family homes, 4 acres of preserved greenspace, a playground and community structure. This subdivision is truly unique to the Kansas City area as no two homes will appear the same and each home is aimed to be LEED for Homes and ENERGY STAR for New Homes certified.
There are 24 lots in the Urban North subdivision, all with varying lot slopes and sizes. A visual layout of the subdivision and individual lot information can be found on the interactive plot plan. Homeowners are able to choose a lot, based on availability, and a house plan that is compatible with the lot choice and vice versa. DRAW architecture + urban design has specifically designed 5 house plans for Urban North, all with several different elevation options. Each of these highly efficient, modern dwellings offer 3-4 bedrooms, 2.5-3 baths and 2-3 car garages and incorporate spacious kitchens, open living spaces and ample storage. The homes are in the $360,000-$430,000 price range. Depending on the level of construction at the time of purchase, future residents will be able to customize their new home by selecting materials, finishes and fixtures.
Owen Homes, the exclusive builder for Urban North, is prepping each home for solar installation, upgrading the insulation and HVAC systems, installing fresh-air exchangers and adding rain barrels for irrigation. Each of the 24 homes in the Urban North subdivision target to be LEED for Homes and ENERGY STAR for New Homes certified. Small Step Energy is working with Owen Homes throughout the construction process to inspect each home, ensuring they meet the third-party certification standards. The Model Home, recently completed, aims for the Silver LEED for Homes certification.
This subdivision is intended for homeowners who are dedicated to be environmentally responsible and have a heartbeat for contemporary style. Prospective residents should know the community falls in the Nationally Accredited North Kansas City School District and is in close proximity to downtown Kansas City and the KCI Airport. A homeowners association has been established for Urban North to be managed by the community; a copy of the HOA documents will be available at the Model Home. The Model Home is open to tour Thursday-Sunday from 1-5pm; lots are available for reservation and are listed on MLS. Visit our Model Home or contact us for more information.
