Divided into one space?


At least they're not trying to divide it by zero. The resulting implosion would make some Leawood residents happy that they'd be several miles closer to Nordstrom Rack :lol:

Re: Cinetopia sues AMC

Maybe if Cinetopia operated competitively in anyway they wouldn't be performing so bad. If I were them, I would go after Dumpster Fires owner too for never finishing the development.

Re: 435 and Antioch Road

Developer Chris Curtin’s latest rezoning request was precipitated by his acquisition of the five homes at 103rd Street and Antioch Road. In their place, he proposes four retail buildings, including a 45,000-square-foot specialty grocery store maybe Fresh Thyme or Lucky's Market or Trader Joes, and ...

Re: 95 Metcalf South update

Do we not have a Metcalf South thread that this could have been posted in? A new thread per update seems to be excessive for some of these smaller centers.

Re: Whole Foods mixed-use project @ 51/Oak

I don't know if this will go over too good. Their prices are way too high. Remember, they closed their store in Overland Park so they clearly think they can be more successful in midtown Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and the rest of them don't like Kansas anyways because Kansas won't allow them to sell...

Re: Glenwood Plaza becoming The Union of Metcalf by Legecy Development

JoCo in general is about 30-40 years away from a tax/fee problem, as in they need to build denser to not need to massively raise them in the future. It's not the roads that will cause this, it's the water and sewer system. What's happening in KC where just about everything needs replacing will come...

I have no doubt that REI would jump ship to Town Center Plaza or The Country Club Plaza from Dumpster Fire, er, "Prairie Fire" in a heartbeat if given a chance.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I know some folks in KC who are very acquainted with the new owners and they insist there is a plan to make the plaza more upscale. Nordstrom's fits the plan but not sure if many of the other moves we are hearing about are consistent with the upscaling. I have no doubt the owners are going for upsc...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Seems to me they're shedding quality but old-line stores that played well to my generation (boomers) and are replacing them with, well, fresher options that speak to a younger demographic. I mean, Eddie Bauer was old news even to me. Haven't set foot in one of their stores in years. For example, th...

I think he's referring to the fact that you're asking for more parking lots, but the only way parking lots can be added is if we destroy existing buildings.
