Carol Marinovich, mayor of the unified government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan., said the next part of the development will be the Legends, a village-style shopping mall designed like a stone-and-brick freight house district.
Planners hoped to attract "destination retailers" like the Mart and Cabela's, she said, meaning people will drive out of their way to come to the stores.
I'm really puzzled as to what they're going to put in this shopping center that will make people drive. I know that RED is pouring a lot more money into the building materials and design than they do in their other malls. If they build a mall with similar tenants as the Plaza, Oak Park or Town Center, I have a feeling his project will fail in West Wy Co. So I guess "tourist retail" (Virgin, Gameworks) must be what they're looking for. What can they build at Legends that would make people from all over the region drive there?
