KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI – Brinshore Development, LLC is pleased to announce the completion and grand opening of Phil B. Curls Manor, a new 54 unit senior living development located near Blue Parkway and Cleveland Avenue in the Mount Cleveland neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri.

Curls Manor includes 54 one and two bedroom units at reasonable rental rates, specifically designed for seniors, aged 55 and older. Curls Manor contains a community room, community kitchen, theater room, computer lab and fitness room, all of which are designed to bring residents together. The energy efficient development will be certified by the National Association of Home Builders rating system.

Curls Manor is named after longtime Kansas City resident Phil B. Curls. Curls was a leader in the passage of bills supporting economic development, family services, health care and education. Curls was also a founding member of the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus Foundation and was passionate about helping the African American community of Kansas City.

“We at Brinshore are proud of Phil B. Curls Manor and hope that it serves as a fitting tribute to the life and commitment of Senator Curls,” said Brinshore co-founder and Principal David Brint.

Financing for the development was provided by the Missouri Housing Development Commission, the City of Kansas City, MO, JPMorgan Chase, and Sugar Creek Capital.

The Seldin Company will serve as the property manager.

Phoenix Family Services will provide full time supportive services for residents.

Straub Construction Company served as the general contractor.

Landon Bone Baker designed the building, and Taliaferro and Browne provided civil engineering and surveying services.

Curls Manor is the first phase in nearly two decades of a public/private partnership to continue the revitalization of the Mount Cleveland neighborhood. Brinshore will be working with the City, the neighborhood and Swope Community Builders to extend the impact of Curls Manor east in future years.
