WICHITA — Developer Paul Jackson is preparing to build the next phase of Andover MarketPlace, and it's a sizable one.

It's the SunStone Apartment Homes at 711 E. Cloud, which is south of Kellogg a half mile east of Andover Road.

"We're building a 208-unit complex that's market rate," says Jackson, who is president of Vantage Point Properties.

That means there won't be an affordable-housing component to the apartments.

Jackson initially purchased 80 acres east of Kellogg and Andover Road and then bought another 70.

"We've owned that land since around 2007 and have slowly developed it ... in the most quality fashion that fits the community," he says. "You know, that's a big project for Andover."

The MarketPlace is where there's a Dillons Marketplace, the Andover YMCA and an elementary school, all of which have since purchased their land from him.

There's also a strip center with several retail businesses in it along with an Arby's restaurant.

Jackson says the highway exposure and convenience will be great for the apartments.

"Most importantly, we think it's a very good use for the site that supports the other things around it."
