Re: College Boulevard Road Diet

It's great to see OP is serious about urbanizing that area. That said, adding parallel parking w/o reducing the speed limit from 45 to at least 35 seems like a bad combo, doesn't it? I imagine that will come, there’s more than enough karens living in OP that’ll complain to the council :lol: I think...

Re: Independence Center

https://www.examiner.net/news/20190313/independence-center-changes-hands-again So the mall changed owners again very quietly. The company that was going to buy it decided against it because the mall is too far from their other properties. Now it's owned by the firm that bought up the failing mall in...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I suppose it's possible the Plaza gets dumped for less than what Taubman paid? Would a local outfit be interested? Copaken? Copaken got out of retail ages ago when they started sinking all five of their malls. Three, including Oak Park, were sold to CBL. Leavenworth Plaza and Mission Center were so...

So now that Tmobile/Sprint merger is final will Tmobile take naming rights?
Considering that Vegas has a T-Mobile Arena, I wouldn't bet on it.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Hopefully Taubman gives up on Plaza and sells to a true urbane mixed use player who can adapt it with mixed residential and more neighborhoody vibe while still inviting to region. Well, you're in luck. Taubman was already in talks to merge with Simon, the company that has dumped such area malls as ...

They also defaulted on Independence Center when they owned it?
And their child company Washington prime owns Town Center Plaza and recently defaulted on West Ridge Mall in Topeka and Towne West Square in Wichita. Simon still owns Towne East, which is fairly healthy.

Re: Lamp Post District - Mission, KS

I've never understood why Mission didn't do more to develop their downtown with more residential, there's a lot of missed/wasted opportunity there now. Yeah, as a resident, I'd love nothing more than to see some density development here. The current mayor and a good chunk of the council are certain...

With the slow down of new single family home developments across metro, this is an opportunity for existing homes/neighborhoods to upgrade as the housing market tightens.
