If you have driven by 151st and Quivira this summer, you may have noticed there has been a lot of activity on the Southeast corner of the intersection. Bluestem has spent many months grading and preparing, what will be, the last phase of this premier New Home community.

Recently, Bluestem has received building permits and begun breaking ground on several foundations. With only 40 premium lots available in its final phase, the time for building is now!

For those who want to take part in designing your dream home, stop by or give us a jingle!

At Bluestem, there is a strong list of builders scheduled to complete a variety of plans from their extensive portfolios. Currently slated to build are, James Engle Custom Homes, Lambie Custom Homes, JS Robinson, Roeser Homes, Bickimer Homes, LDH Construction, and Summit Custom Homes. If you are interested in bringing in an outside builder, upon review and approval by developer, outside builders are accepted.

Understanding the building process can sometimes be tricky; especially when builders have many projects underway. Typically, the digging and pouring of foundations will take roughly one month, and new home construction is taking about eight to ten months. As we start nearing colder months, pouring foundations can become a much more difficult and lengthy process. If you want to move into your new home by early spring next year, let’s sit down and discuss your desires. The time is now to make your dream home a reality!

40 New Homesites Available at Bluestem

Categories: Bluestem, Prime Development | Posted: October 22, 2013

Coming soon, 40 new lots will be available for reservations.  This release of lots will be the last chance to own a home in the popular Overland Park community.   Along with stunning lake views, Bluestem offers families access to more than 60 acres of natural greenspace, and 1-1/2 miles of walking trails.  Don’t miss your chance to live where there is “space to play, space to live”.

So what are you waiting for?

As you leave for work in the morning, enjoy the picturesque sunrises over the lake.  When you come home, your family could take evening walks through exceptional greenspaces offering views of wildlife.

Does all this seem to be too good to be true?  Come visit Bluestem at 151st and Quivira and see for yourself!

Prime Development Sees ‘Incredible’ Spring Parade Traffic

Categories: Awards, Bluestem, New Homes, Paririe Point, Prairie Brook, Prime Development, Spring Homes Tour | Posted: April 19, 2012

KCHBA Spring Parade of HomesThe best part of spring in Kansas City? Aside from the (mostly) beautiful weather, the season’s arrival means it’s time for the annual Spring Parade of Homes.

This year, Prime Development is thrilled to showcase Parade entries in three communities: Prairie Brook, Prairie Point and Bluestem. The Parade is a great time to shop for a new home as you tour furnished models and get a taste of what each community has to offer in terms of homes, amenities and that all-important feature: location, location, location!

During the Spring and Fall Parades, event organizers recognize American Dream Award Winners. We’re thrilled to announce that two homes in our newest community, Bluestem, received runner-up awards: James Engle Custom Homes’Laurel,” a four-bedroom, 1 ½-story home located at 11313 W. 153rd St.; and Summit Custom Home’sBristol Ridge II,” a five-bedroom, two-story home at 11413 W. 153rd St.

The Parade continues through April 29, which means you have plenty of time to come out and explore our communities. Homes are open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The activity level during this first week of the Parade has been impressive. Debbie Sinclair, who markets Prairie Point with Mara Dona Wood, says the community has seen a high number of visitors each day as prospective homeowners are eager to tour the community’s new model row that unites four of the largest builders in Kansas City: Rodrock Homes, Summit Custom Homes, James Engle Custom Homes and Roeser Homes.

In Prairie Brook and Bluestem, the Parade response has been similar. Limited opportunities remain to purchase a single-family home in Prairie Brook, a dually focused community that also offers villa homes. And in Bluestem, Prime Development’s marketing director, Dennis Patterson, said the community saw “incredible” Parade traffic last weekend.

“Over 200 groups went through on Sunday alone,” he said.

Not only did Bluestem see a high level of activity, but one of the Parade entries sold on Sunday—James Engle’s expanded “Birch” floor plan.

If you haven’t yet visited one of our communities during this year’s Spring Parade, now’s the time to get out and explore! And even if you’ve already stopped by, you’re welcome back for a second look. To stay up-to-date on Parade-related information, follow Prime Development and Bluestem on Facebook.
