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? I ...

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.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

One option Oak Park could consider is trying to get Bloomingdales to lease that spot but considering our market size that would be tough.

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.

not sure if this was posted but in this latest posting on the cityscenekc site it's mentioned that there are discussions to build a new office building downtown. In a related matter, Schulte told the Downtowners that H&R Block is teaming up with Copaken Brooks and Cordish to pursue a potential offic...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

KC just has a lot more red tape. Other cities move faster and let's not even talk about how fast Chinese cities move on developments. Either way glad to see it's moving forward.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

This whole process is just really making B&M look bad. If anything it reaffirms the perspective that they were trying to get preferential treatment the whole time. Really unfortunate that a local team would have to stoop to this level.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Surprised they haven't started on three light yet. I believe they had said construction would start before two light was finished. If anything, I thought they would have released a rendering by now.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

It would be interesting to see a picture of the same area twenty years ago. I think it's amazing how far downtown has come and I can't wait to see the skyline five years from now when three, four light are completed as well as the new convention center hotel. I agree that what we need next is a new ...
