Re: Sprint sale rumors again

Several news articles are also confirming the rumor today. As noted we'll see if this actually goes through. If it does, it will be unfortunate news since I'm sure the new combined company will have its headquarters in Seattle. One of the links is below. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/27/business/d...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

That being said they are managing Beverly Center in Los Angeles well and when I went to Nashville recently the Mall at Green Hills was pretty busy. I just wish they'd make some announcements about what their plans are or at least begin releasing some more new tenant names.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I hope you're right. I'd hate to see the Plaza go downhill but based off the article and recent comments they seem to have an overall strategy as to what they're doing and just haven't revealed it to us.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

fyi; now cole haan is closing. not quite sure what Taubmann and Macerich are thinking since this was a nicer/higher-end store but it appears they are forcing out a lot of tenants.

Re: Three Light

this will be a great addition to the skyline. looking forward to seeing this go up. cordish may have gotten a good deal from the city when they first negotiated this but you can't deny they've done a lot for downtown.

Exactly. I think everyone wants this done but there just isn't enough private funding to help kickstart this.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

The local large companies have already demonstrated that they have no interest in investing in downtown office space. The only two options are: 1.) speculative builds: which our local developers don't seem to want to swallow 2.) growth of more homegrown companies-- local, and state government need t...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

fyi; brief article in the kansas city business journal about very basic/initial work being done at KCI to prep for eventual construction of the new airport. Can't wait for them to release the final designs.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Burberry closing - last day is March 24. These are the kind of stores that the plaza needs so this is disheartening. Agreed. Plus recent articles point to the new CEO wanting to move away from areas that are not wealthy. Apparently, he visited all the stores in the US and I'm guessing the Kansas Ci...

That's really unfortunate. Burberry is one of the few nicer stores on the Plaza.

Re: Missing hotel flags in Downtown

Also missing on the list are a few of the luxury brands. Which I think will take KC awhile to be able to support.

-Four Seasons
-St. Regis
-Mandarin Oriental
-Peninsula

To name a few.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Interesting article on cnbc about malls fighting for retailers. They spend a significant amount of the article on the recent announcement by Nordstrom to move to the plaza.
