Re: Kansas, Missouri battle over companies

Johnson County is one of the only areas of growth for the state of KS. The state will do anything to keep JoCo growing. At this point its practically the only. Lawrence and Manhattan have posted pretty nasty job loses since last fall, and everything Lawrence tries to subsidize either closes or neve...

Did you ever drive on Kellogg in Wichita before the flyover? It was needed pretty badly.

I thought these stores would only be open in March and then proceed to march right out of Olathe into the next subsidized JoCo retail project.

Re: Independence Center

Here's an article in the KC Star about the foreclosure. Not a good sign. It seems like another enclosed mall in KC might bite the dust. http://www.kansascity.com/news/business/article198643414.html Didn't this mall recently add two major tenants (Dicks and H&M)? And isn't is nearly fully leased...

Re: Oak Park Mall - Nordstrom Leaving

I wonder when the fourth floor of the men's store was walled off? I remember when they sold electronics up there. Kind of weird that they now have escalators to nowhere. I can't read the Biz Journal article but I could see someone like Alamo Drafthouse repurpose some of the space. Their theater in ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

It’s pretty sad that Dillard’s just dumped millions into Wichita without touching any of the KC stores. Could have fooled me. Still has the same, bland concrete exterior it was built with in 1980... and I assume you're not talking about the one on the west side that was turned into a clearance cent...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

If the rumors are true about Nordstrom it's great for the plaza but bad for OakPark Mall. I'm not sure who they'd be able to lease that large space out to. Yeah and they just lost Banana and something else (Bath and Body?). Plus the Dillard's men's store is a dump. Losing Nordstrom would be a huge ...

Their might be space near by for it like if they close the Loop for Development. Are you trolling or is your spatial comprehension that bad? I actually heard the theaters would be closing.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

As the retail landscape continues to change to more online, it's going to be harder to fill empty stores when they close. I wonder if this will be more local shops, restaurants or entertainment offerings? Interested in hearing what others think should open on the Plaza in an era when retail storefr...
