that link didn't work for me either, but i hear they will open one at 103rd and Metcalf.
That would probably mean tearing down the old Winstead's, eh? I would have thought they could also go next to the new Lowe's up the street.

Re: Bluhawk

So now you have two STAR bond projects in JoCo basically competing against each other. The Bluehawk and the Great Mall redevelopment. Both trying hard to find something, anything, that they can say is a "destination" so they can build out these projects in outer suburbia with tax revenue rather tha...

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

Any news on the Hard Rock hotel or Menards store supposedly going in out there? Seems like projects move really slow getting developed in that area.

Re: 95 Metcalf North Plan submitted to city

A bit off thread, I know, but - every now and then I have reason to drive southbound down Metcalf from I-35. Yesterday was the most recent. I continue to be impressed by the building projects that are giving that the entire corridor a much needed face lift. I'm not sure (maybe someone can help me o...

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

What's happening with the "Legends South" development across I-70 south of Hollywood Casino? Nothing has been done at the site in months it looks like. News releases from last year say two hotels were to be finished by "mid-2018". A major retailer that was aligned with Nascar was to open there, but ...

Apparently all locations of 95th Street are closing. Seems like overkill.

Re: Topeka,ks Sears on the list

a sears in topeka is probably the most depressing place in america. ALL Sears stores are depressing. Hence, them going away. You would think they could have been competitive in Overland Park. There were rumors ten years ago about them building a store (and relocating?) in Corbin Park as I recall. B...

Re: Cinetopia sues AMC

I've been wondering if that (the AMC vs Cinetopia fight) had actually gone away. What is never mentioned when Cinetopia makes their case is the experience of going to a movie out there is such a pain. You have to navigate a huge parking garage, which surburbanites in particular seem to loathe. And t...

Re: Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Resort

The Co-Owner has been arrested in connection to the Verruckt death. I think there is a decent chance Schlitterbahn just pulls out of Kansas in the next couple years. They probably got a bunch of money to build the thing, why even bother with operating in another state when all your other locations ...

Re: Waterside Development

What a wasted opportunity - that area was initially proposed to house a Scheel's and hotels that would be connected to Schlitterbahn via boat or lazy river-type attraction. Ending up with Menard's, auto mall, etc. Oh yeah. It has "evolved" over the years. I half expect the Schlitterbahn to be for s...

No. It's a new shopping center adjacent to Schlitterbahn in KCK, next door to the new Dairy Farmers of America headquarters.

Re: Waterside Development

Yes. Definitely looks like one. About time they broke ground on developing that area next to the waterpark.
