JVM has finished renovations to the clubhouse and common areas at Summit Ridge Apartments in Lee's Summit, Mo.
JVM transformed the community's basketball court into a state-of-the-art, 3,500-square-foot fitness center featuring WellBeats, Bodycraft and Torque Fitness equipment. Also, the company remodeled the former laundry room into a brand-new pet spa and built a new car wash.
The remodeled clubhouse now has a 24-hour electronic package center with refrigerated storage to store food deliveries. The building also includes a new co-working lounge with free Wi-Fi, coffee and tea; a refurbished business center; and a renovated kitchen. Additionally, JVM refreshed the look of the pool area.
Renovations to the apartment homes at Summit Ridge also are taking place. Energy-efficient windows have been installed in the units. Other improvements – including the installation of white quartz countertops with dark gray cabinetry and in-unit washers and dryers – will begin later this month. First-floor units eventually will feature gray wood-style flooring with carpeted bedrooms.
"We are extremely proud of the improvements at Summit Ridge," said Jay Madary, president and CEO of JVM. "We believe the property now has the biggest and most attractive fitness facility in the area, and we feel the expansive refrigerated package storage area is a nice differentiator as well. All in all, the wide range of improvements will further cement the community's status as one of the most desired properties in its submarket. These renovations are a strong testament to JVM's commitment to making sure our communities are always ideally positioned to be top performers and to deliver outstanding returns."
