Now in Phase II, the Kendall Whittier neighborhood is fully realizing the transformative impact of this George Kaiser Family Foundation development initiative. With a variety of scales and styles of buildings, the project is designed to fit in seamlessly with the surrounding Craftsman-style housing and apartments.
The magic of Phase II is in the urban design: nine buildings with a variety of housing types and styles, including apartments and attached townhomes, are arranged around the perimeter of the block to form a defined street edge. The main apartment building houses the community and exercise rooms that serve as a FEMA tornado shelter.
Only minutes from downtown, this front porch community encourages residents to walk, bike, or take public transit to access a variety of daily needs and brings neighbors together to create a stronger, urban community where children and their families can thrive.
