Schoolhouse Beat

Former elementary in Kansas City, Mo., to become apartments

Construction has begun to convert the former Seven Oaks Elementary School in Kansas City, Mo., into a 44-unit senior housing facility. The Kansas City Star says the building wil have 28 two-bedroom units and 16 one-bedroom units and is scheduled to open in May 2014. The former school is one of many facilities that the Kansas City School District has closed because of declining enrollment.
