Mission Farms is a neighborhood in Leawood, Kansas, a Kansas City suburb. The neighborhood centers around Mission Road. Development began on Mission Farms in 2006, and the area now features commercial space, retail stores, and apartments. Mission Farms was built with the intention to allow people to live, work, and play in one compact area.
Unfortunately, Mission Farms does not offer public transportation, but Interstate 435 is adjacent to the neighborhood and allows for easy access to both Kansas City and Overland Park.
The first developed area was along the east side of Mission Road. The development was built on 27 acres, and includes 60 condominiums, shops, and office spaces. All of the retail space has been occupied and the condos have all been sold. Most of the office space has also been rented as well. Because of the area’s success, plans are underway to substantially expand the area both to the east and west of the current development.
The new development that is scheduled to go up on the west side of Mission Road will include not only more commercial and retail space but also a 215 unit, secure parking apartment complex.
This area is among many convenient commercial ventures in this green, equestrian-themed area. Several horse sculptures, crafted by a local artist, sit among the buildings. Unique restaurants and shops are located within the neighborhood as well, and plenty of free parking is available throughout the area.
