It says it's going in at 7940 W 135th St., where Logan's Steak House was.

What's being built on the SE corner of Quivira and 87th?

There's a large steel-frame building going up on the southeast corner of Quivira Road and 87th Street Pkwy in Lenexa. From what I can tell, the only access would be from Santa Fe Trail Drive. I tried looking on the City of Lenexa website in recent plan commission minutes and such, but I couldn't fin...

Re: Shawnee: Proposed mixed-use redevelopment of Westbrooke Village (75th & Quivira)

I emailed the mayor and my councilmen expressing support. I told them I'd rather they spend money incentivizing this than trying to build one more strip mall along the western end of Shawnee Mission Parkway.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Not that it means anything, but AECOM's video uses the airport sound effect from SimCity 2000 in the beginning of the video. I just found that amusing.

Re: Sears closing

Not that it means anything one way or the other, but in the inner-ring St. Louis suburbs, there's a Home Depot, Lowe's and Menards within half a mile of each other. Of course, since it's St. Louis County, they're in three different cities. Home Depot in Brentwood, Lowe's in Maplewood and Menards in ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Not to mention there isn't a renovation plan that doesn't include central screening areas, thus still eliminating the "convenience" that everyone harps on. People need to realize the days of a checkpoint for every few gates is going away, one way or another.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I saw a lot of reports on the Google Fiber subreddit about cancellation notices in JoCo, but I followed up with their Twitter team and it appears our neighborhood in Shawnee (near SMNW) is still on-track for construction. They came through in December and installed vaults, and supposedly we're 3-5 m...

Re: A other try at Shawnee Mission Parkway and Maurer Road

I don't want to give tax breaks to developers so they can build another strip mall in Shawnee. How about we build something mixed-use there instead? Or better yet, if we're giving tax breaks, let's get Westbrook Village at Quivira and 75th back in shape? That would be worth spending tax dollars on.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

There's not a chance in hell a threat to move to Johnson County would be anything but a bluff. Turning New Century into an international airport would cost billions of dollars more than a new terminal at KCI, not to mention the locals in Gardner might not be too happy with the upgrade. But if a bluf...

Re: Chuy's,Hotel,Pad Sites

I like how they hand-drew the individual parking stalls to the east of the pads and then just gave up on the stalls to the south. Super professional.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Step 1: Get a bunch of people to sign up for your service. Step 2: Take several years to roll out service. Step 3: Many customers ask for their deposit back Step 4: Cut staff because subscriber base isn't as big as you hoped. I signed up in December, but many of my neighbors signed up more than a ye...

Ugh, Shopko? I stopped at the one on the east side of Madison a few times when I lived there, but the place was pretty desolate. I've been in livelier K-Marts.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I signed up for service last fall in Shawnee (I believe I'm in the "Parkway South" fiberhood). Construction still hasn't started, so I called last week to find out what was going on. I was told they had to start over from scratch on the design for some reason and had just received a permit...
