Testimonials

I am writing this letter to say that living at East Village has been a blessing to me for the following reasons.  First, oversized apartments. Second, good management and third, any work order I request is done in a timely manner. I have lived at East Village for a few months and I have no complaints.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City could not be happier with our Legacy Center Administrative offices at the 4001 Blue Parkway Office Building. The location is central and very accessible for all of our constituents and stakeholders, and most importantly represents a very positive community presence and identity not possible in some building hidden away on the fifth floor which was our previous situation! We really enjoy the vitality and energy of the space, surrounding businesses and other non-profit groups located here as well. Lastly the building services provided by Swope Community Builders, now called Community Builders of Kansas City are very efficient and responsive to our needs!
