Pickleball, drinks and more – Overland Park advances plan for entertainment center on Metcalf

A new concept of pickleball, bar and entertainment arrives at 91st and Metcalf in Overland Park.

SERV Promontory aims to be a mixed-use commercial development with plans for pickleball courts, a bar, restaurants and other entertainment.

Owner, Arbor Development LLC, and developer, Launch Development, offered revisions to the draft plan, which previously provided for a mix of residential and commercial space.

The project is located next to the Promontory apartments, which are now open.

SERV’s revised blueprints include:

  • Six pickleball courts in an approximately 14,000 square foot recreation building
  • A dining room of approximately 5,000 square feet
  • Seven “container” structures that will be used for:
    • Restaurants
    • Retail
    • A coffee kiosk
    • A bar
    • Bathroom
    • Storage room
  • Two outdoor pickleball courts with seating area
  • A performance scene
  • A large TV screen

Here are a few more design renderings:

“An exciting time for Overland Park”

Cary Taylor, director of restaurant and retail services for Kansas City-based Crossroads Real Estate Group, which manages the rental of the project, said the development team is set to add to the excitement along the Metcalf Avenue corridor from downtown Overland Park to I-435.

“It’s such an exciting time for Overland Park,” said Taylor. “This really is one of the hottest subway areas in Kansas City so we knew we were sitting on something pretty awesome that already had a really nice touch in the Promontory apartments.”

Taylor said they haven’t blocked any suppliers for SERV Headland, but will begin this process soon. However, they are looking for wholesale ice cream and coffee vendors as well as the addition of a guest chef’s kitchen.

Retailers will likely be local manufacturers, and the resort will also have games and entertainment for the whole family like the cornhole as well as a rooftop patio and drive-thru coffee.

The Overland Park Planning Commission on Monday voted 9-1 to approve a revised preliminary plan for the site at the northeast corner of 91st and Metcalf.

Commissioner Holly Streeter-Schaefer cast the only dissenting vote. Commissioner George Lund was absent.

Streeter-Schaefer raised concerns that the construction materials for the containers offered on the site differ from the design criteria of the entire Promontory development, including the neighboring apartments.

City staff also expressed concerns about the scene and any noise impact on surrounding properties. However, these issues are likely to be addressed in a final development plan, according to city documents.

Construction is scheduled to begin later this year and is expected to take about a year.
