Hi

Am moving from India to Overland park for a short duration of 6 months . I am looking for good residential community around sprint parkway. My budget is 600 to 700$ and need a 1 bedroom house.

Please let know about the transport facilities for commuting to office. My office is located in Sprint parkway

Kindly give your suggestions.

-Sathya

There are many apartments across the street from the Sprint HQ, to where you can walk too and a few people I know of do. You might also want to check into nearby hotels that have rooms that are set up like an apartments for your price range, since your only going to be here for 6 months. Many of those hotels have shuttle service to the sprint campus. I try to ask around and post more information. Good luck and enjoy your stay in KC.

Check out the apartment links below. It looks like Town Center Apartments are very close. But rent is from $865-1325. That ratings site is good because people that have lived there or still live there rate the places. Sometimes that can be a big help. I also included a link for Johnson County Transit, so can get an idea of bus costs and so forth. It looks like if you want to stick to your budget you will need to be father away from the Sprint HQ. Being on a bus line or having a car would be your only options. Good luck.

This one is $890 but includes all utilities, cable and wifi. It is furnished too. If you add in the utilities and cable on a 700 dollar apartment it would be around the same amount. If you can swing I'd say this one would be best for a short term move like you plan to make.

This one might be a bit of a walk, but its on 119th street same as the Sprint campus, so getting a bus shouldn't be a big problem. They start at 810.

All the areas around Sprint are great residential areas. No violent crime, very safe, very nice. There are apartments that are walking distance to Sprint. You won't find a house for $600 or $700 a month, but maybe an apartment. There is an apartment complex on the southeast corner of 119th and Nall - used to be Signature Place but I'm not sure if the name has changed. But the rent there used to be very reasonable. There are lots of other complexes in the area, too.

Wondering why this was moved to the Kansas City forum, though? He specifically asked about Overland Park, Kansas, not somewhere in Kansas City. This could explain why there are fewer threads in the Kansas forum - if threads concerning Johnson County are in the Kansas City forum and not the Kansas forum. I didn't know the Kansas forum was only for rural Kansas...

I believe the moderators see Johnson and Wyandotte Counties (plus others) in Kansas as part of the metropolitan area, following the census definition of the Kansas City MSA:

Greater Kansas City

While it is true that Johnson County is considered part of the Kansas City metro area, think for a moment about where you would post a thread asking about Overland Park. Would you first click on Missouri and its Kansas City sub-forum? Seems counter-intuitive to me.

There is, after all, a separate city of Kansas City in Kansas. Which raises the question of why there isn't a Kansas City sub-forum for Kansas, does it not? Perhaps an idea whose time has come.

Same reason why Covington, KY and other NKY threads are in the Cincinnati, OH forum and Metro East IL threads are in the St Louis, MO forum.

Overland Park is a suburb of KCMO, not KCK. KCK is basically a suburb of KCMO.

Of course the hostility of competing with vs being a part of KC is par for the course and exactly why the kc metro is so screwed up now.

The difference between IL, KY etc is those states have much more than just spill over sprawl from a metro based in another state. IL has Chicago, KY has Louisville etc.

Either way, there is a level of regional pride and respect in most bi-state metros that simply does not exist in metro KC.

Goodness knows I don't want to get into a MO vs KS pi**ing contest here, but when you go to the Kansas Forum, right at the top there is an "announcement" titled "Kansas City Forum" which links you right here.
