MILITARY HOUSING COMMUNITY COMPLETED
LEAVENWORTH, KAN. — Cheyenne Village, a 33-unit military housing community located at Fort Leavenworth in Leavenworth, has been completed. Designed by St. Louis-based Rosemann & Associates, with assistance by Kaw Valley Engineering and Lankford & Associates, the community includes 15 duplexes, one single-family home and two accessible units. Each of the duplexes includes three or four bedrooms with 2.5 baths and a full basement, landscaped yards with fenced back yards, attached garages and laundry facilities. Cheyenne Village, which is being developed by Michaels Military Housing, is the second neighborhood completed as part of the $220 million Ft. Leavenworth Military Housing Privatization plan. The project, which seeks to renovate and upgrade substandard military housing on the base, will include construction of 708 new units, major renovations to 635 units, minor renovations to 84 units and the historic rehabilitation of 269 units. Major infrastructure improvements will also be made, including new streets and utilities; the upgrade of existing utilities; and the construction of a playground, hiking and biking trails, and a community space. Completion of the entire project is scheduled for 2014.
