Lenexa advances preliminary development plan for Boutique Retirement Club at Canyon Farms. The city of Lenexa earlier this month approved a preliminary development plan for Boutique Retirement Club at Canyon Farms. The developer plans to build a 139-unit multi-family residential facility for retirement-aged residents, in a facility to be located at 18200 Prairie Star Parkway. It includes a three- and four-story building with several amenities, including a pool, restaurant, bar, exercise room, library, lounge, salon, theatre, worship space and small dog park. The facility will have units with a mixture of one, two and three bedrooms. The developer received a deviation from parking requirements, from 264 to 214 parking stalls, saying the development needs fewer parking spaces for retirees.
