St. John's Place

703 7th Street | Victoria, Kansas

The old St. John’s Rest Home is 41,000 square foot building that's been vacant for about a decade. Phase 1 of the revitalization effort includes 12 moderate income senior apartments in the northern portion of the building. This area was originally constructed in 1978 and 1986.

Budget: $3 million

Project Overview

Since 2021, volunteers from the Victoria Community Coalition, Inc. (VCC) have worked to gather input, initiate fundraising efforts, and create a development plan for the former St. John's Rest Home. Proposed uses for the 41,000-square-foot space include 20 total senior apartments in three sizes, two new childcare rooms that can be leased to providers, community gathering space, and the addition of a new History Museum in Victoria, run by the Ellis County Historical Society. 

Pomeroy Development is involved as an hourly on-call consultant for this project assisting with evaluating the viability of various incentive programs, reviewing design plans, and other duties and tasks as needed.

Project Hurdles
