Oak Grove, Missouri – May, 2024 – Sallee Development, Country Club Bank, city officials, chamber members, and trade partners, celebrated a significant milestone with the groundbreaking event for Rustic Heights, a new residential build-for-rent community set to offer multi-family living options in Oak Grove.
Found on 18 acres down 4th Street, Rustic Heights blends countryside with contemporary amenities. The planned community will be comprised of 40 townhomes with 176 units, a pool, playground, and walking trails.
Rustic Heights, initially owned and developed by KAT Excavation Inc. under Steve Bailey, was sold to Sallee Development. Sallee will oversee the vertical construction and ensure the project’s completion, with the community’s opening anticipated this year. Sallee brings decades of expertise in constructing exceptional residential communities across the Kansas City metro. Founded in 1989 by the Sallee family, the company’s commitment to quality and innovation has earned them a distinguished reputation in the industry.
Tyler Sallee, President and CEO of Sallee Development, conveyed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, “Rustic Heights exemplifies our ongoing commitment to improving housing options throughout Kansas City. We are thrilled to establish a relationship with the Oak Grove community and look forward to introducing more multi-family housing options to the area.”
The multi-family townhome product within Rustic Heights will be exclusively built by Sallee Development, offering 2-3 bedroom rental options with attached garages, spacious closets, and quartz countertops. These maintenance-provided townhomes are designed for every lifestyle, offering convenience and comfort at an affordable price
This project was funded through Country Club Bank (CCB), a local financial institution founded on the Country Club Plaza and has since expanded the scope of their services to the greater Kansas City community. Their team was onsite to help commemorate the event. Joe Close, President of Country Club Bank said, “We find that both Sallee and CCB were started as family-owned, local companies that have grown to serve the Kansas City metro as a whole. When we met to discuss this project it became apparent that our mission and vision to bring more affordable housing options and grow communities aligned as well. We’re excited to witness the positive impact this development will bring to Oak Grove.”
Rustic Heights is currently in permitting with the City and construction is expected to start next month, with the first units delivered this Fall.
