Greenway Studios in Springfield, Missouri

Greenway Studios is home to students, professionals, and retirees looking for a more efficient lifestyle.

Completed in 2015, Greenway Studios was the first micro-efficiency studio apartment development in Springfield, Missouri. (But it wouldn't be the last by a long shot.) Greenway Studios was one of our first opportunities as a team to talk to passionate city leaders about how a development like Greenway could solve a need for housing and attract individuals to a more efficient way of life.

Greenway Studios has one of the most diverse residential communities any of our developments have attracted so far. The 340-square-foot studio units are home to college students, retirees, traveling nurses, skilled laborers, and young couples.

Greenway Studios has made a lasting impact on residents and the surrounding community.

Greenway Studios was the gateway development for micro-efficiency living in Springfield, Missouri.

With our units topping out at 340 square feet, Greenway Studios was one of the first micro-efficiency developments of its kind in Springfield, Missouri. We knew there were members of the community interested in a lifestyle that embraced micro-living spaces, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that the popularity of Greenway Studios marked the beginning of several similar developments in the city.

"It was an honor to work with City of Springfield, the park board, and preservationists to make sure the historic church on the site of Greenway Studios was moved to a new permanent location."
- Brent T. Brown, Greenway Development Group

We joined up with a local preservation group to save a historic church.

When we began the planning process for Greenway Studios, we knew the site would perfectly serve its diverse set of residents. But a 1932 church, Timmons Temple, stood on the site. Rather than needlessly tear it down, we worked with local preservationists to cut the church from its foundation and roll the 500,000-pound structure to a nearby park, where it stands strong today.

The Save Timmons Temple Fund needed more than $100,000 to make the move possible—we contributed $70,000.
