Re: Kmart redevelopment

Yep, Menards is all about the greenfield. They might consider this to be “too close” to the one they’re planning in KCK, anyway.

Re: St Louis: City and County Consider Merger

Some sort of consolidation is definitely required, even if it's piecemeal. It's depressing when you look at Hanley Road south of Highway 40 and see a Home Depot in Brentwood, a Menards in Richmond Heights, and a Lowe's in Maplewood, all within half a mile of each other, and all built with TIF by cit...

Re: Prariefire at Lionsgate - large mixed use development

The applicant is requesting approval of a revised preliminary plan for Prairiefire. The mixed use development was originally approved in 2006, with the most recent approval by the City Council on January 9, 2017. This revised preliminary plan request is to reduce the overall square-footage in the d...

Re: Hy-Vee wants to expand

How about they renovate the stores in Shawnee and Lenexa off Pflumm first? Everyone else in town gets shiny new stores and I keep time-traveling back to 1988 every time I buy a loaf of bread.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I like how the background on page 1-5 of the Final Environmental Assessment is essentially lifted entirely from Wikipedia. TWA vetoed concepts to model the airport on Washington Dulles International Airport and Tampa International Airport, because those two airports had people movers which it deemed...

Re: Power Teneat who do you hope it is

Is Menards the only company like it that buys so much land and leases out parcels itself? I don't feel like most other big-box stores operate that way.

Re: New Restaurants/Other Businesses in Northland

I know Ebert and Gerbert's (A sandwich shop based in Wisconsin that is basically the same as Milio's) wanted to expand in this region but i don't think anything ever opened so Milio's is not out of the question, i think both sandwich places are related to eachother Mike Liautaud, the guy who founde...

Re: New Restaurants/Other Businesses in Northland

We are just waiting for Tim Horton's,Milio's Sandwich Shop and so on to announce locations. Wait a sec... I know this quote is two years old, but do you have any reason to think Milio's is expanding down here? I loved Milio's when I lived in Wisconsin. And speaking of Wisconsin, don't expect Shopko...

Re: Lions Choice

A friend with a spouse who works for the company confirmed Menards is going ahead on a new KCK location at 98th and State, just east of Legends. It's set to open early next year. I mention it in this thread only because the two Lion's Choice locations in Olathe and Blue Springs are in Menards outlot...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

CDG may look nice, but it's just short of Franz Kafka International Airport in convenience, ease-of-use, and customer service.

Great googly moogly, I made the mistake of reading comments in that Facebook group. Did you know the Target by Oak Park Mall isn't safe because Kelsey Smith was kidnapped from there... almost 12 years ago? I don't think anyone in that group will be happy until they rebuild and reopen Metcalf South j...

Re: Lions Choice

Publix would be awesome if they would come here. Only thing better than Lion's Choice is a Publix sub. Stopped at the Independence Lion's Choice the other day and... it was kinda meh? The meat was overcooked, almost gray. I didn't ask for it well-done. Maybe it's just new restaurant jitters for the ...

Re: Heart of America Rapid Transit

Why does the Green Line become the Blue Line north of the river? Is it not the same line? Are people expected to transfer at the downtown airport station? Also, the way the map was designed, I thought it had to be a mid-80s proposal until I zoomed in and saw references to the Sprint Center and Legen...

Re: Lions Choice

My teenage son made us stop at Lion's Choice three times in four days over the long weekend while we were in St. Louis. I'm tempted to have him apply there so he can make some money while he gains 50 pounds.
