From the Shawnee Dispatch: Shawnee city council sets Westbrooke incentives public hearing for Nov. 13
For the $113 million project, developers are seeking $25.3 million in financial incentives from the city. They include $19.7 in TIF financing and $5.6 million from a 1.5 percent Community Improvement District.
The mixed-use project, titled Westbrooke Green, plans to feature 108,500 square feet of high-end shops and restaurants, as well as 530 luxury residential units.
It will feature a community courtyard and a 20,000 square-foot specialty grocery store, such as Whole Foods, for example.
Apartment buildings will range from four to five stories.
Since details about the project have emerged, residents living close to the nearly-vacant shopping center have already started to express concern.
At a neighborhood meeting held about the Westbrooke project on Oct. 4 at the Shawnee Civic Centre, a few residents told the Dispatch they were unhappy the project included apartment buildings, they were alarmed by the heights of the buildings and they worried about an increase in traffic in the area.
A couple residents also mentioned they were against the city approving financial incentives for the massive project.
