I thought this would have gotten a more recent post. Huh. At any rate...

$305 million plan for Olathe Great Mall site envisions a mixed-use sports destination

Developers envision a $305 million plan for the site of the razed Great Mall of the Great Plains in Olathe.

An application to use Kansas STAR bonds to finance the project proposes a mixed-use project with a heavy emphasis on sports and fitness.

It would also incorporate entertainment venues, restaurants, retail space, office and medical office space, hotels, residential units, and public spaces that could draw nearly 1.8 million visitors a year to the underused site at Interstate 35 and 151st Street.

The redevelopment could include a 4,000-5,000 seat arena and a community ice sheet for youth hockey tournaments and practice, interactive golf, and rock climbing.


It all seems pretty pie-in-the-sky at the moment.

Us Kansans like to throw good money after bad. :( This is not STAR bond worthy.

If this area could drive 1.8 million people annually the mall would still be open.
