Look forward to checking it out but that stripmall is prime to be torn down for another housing project similar to the residential project at 39th/State Line, with retail spot below at street level.
As is the entire lot behind Jazz along State Line. With KU Med area constantly expanding, that lot could use a large urbane residential project with large free public garage (residential spaces as well with separate access) and more streetlevel retail along State Line. Am critical of TIF lately but wouldn't mind TIF being used for those cases - as long as public garage is free.
