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: 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.
