Re: Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Resort

From one of the most amazing, ambitious, and exciting plans on paper for the KC theme park, to this. The whole story would make a fascinating documentary. Really would like to know what happened to those ambitious plans (like the year-round indoor water rides) beyond the lame "the recession ha...

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: Bluhawk

They keep scaling back this thing: https://www.kshb.com/news/local-news/developer-of-op-bluhawk-project-announces-205m-phase-1 An article in today's Star says the Cosmophere will be added "in a later phase." Boy, is that a common theme with these projects. The museum also seems smaller tha...

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 t...

Re: Waterside Development

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

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

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: OFFICIAL: Zona Rosa (tenants & phase II)

I actually heard the theaters would be closing. Those are actually well-run and maintained. A shame that they have gotten a bad rep from the occasional problems with teens. It would be a big project to gut that building (again) to put something else in. I almost think they might try condos instead,...

Re: Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Resort

The Village South development won't have a convention center and hotel. Just a couple of new (smaller) hotels. The Wyandotte Daily article specifically says they are being looked at for Village South. Not to get too caught up in semantics, but I read "hotels and a conference center" diffe...

HomeGoods confirmed for Fresh Market space. Can't see the REI crowd shopping there much.

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

This is still years from being fully built out. A lot could change in their industry, in transportation, etc. But if no one else invests in that area it will be a very odd island.

If so, that would be long after they get their Overland Park location up and running. They are taking their time on that location (now aiming at a fall opening).

Re: Metcalf South Update

With the recent announcement of more Sears/Kmart stores closings, I wonder if the developers have plans for the Sears store/site if that location should close in the next few years. In the meantime will Sears give the store an exterior facelift? I would think the side that is currently attached to t...

Re: Ward Parkway Mall just sighed up

I think the Macy's at Oak Park Mall was where Dillard's Men is now. I clearly remember a Macy's name plate embedded in the sidewalk outside the store before all the expansion happened in the 90s. Although I guess it's possible I'm remembering a Stix name plate...

And of course they are asking for incentives. As usual. But I hope they do something nice there; it's been ugly for years.
