Re: Twincreeks updated site plan

Wish these suburban dollars flew downtown. The upside is the developments in the Northland are mostly all within 15 miles of downtown. Versus the Johnson County developments which are an hour from downtown and cater mostly to people who work in Johnson County thus promoting even less jobs and busin...

Re: OFFICIAL: Zona Rosa (tenants & phase II)

The development has had a hotel in the plans for more than a decade and it was never built. I can’t imagine that there is much market for it considering how many other new hotels have been built up there. Maybe when the new KCI gets going, but not at this exact moment. A big problem with Zona is th...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

i didn't read the article but my guess is construction will start next year. on their website they've changed the date to a fall 2022 opening. I guess this is good news for oak park mall, it buys them another year to figure out what to do with that big space. CBL had been betting on demolishing qui...

Of course. How else would we know that the Arby's in Corinth Square closed because McDonald's owns... something, and that Andy's Frozen Custard prefers opening in Overland Park because of the Waldo Neighborhood of KCMO, but only if it's approved on the first.

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?

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...

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.
