Re: Bluhawk

Only a small section east of I-35 is doing well though. You high quite a bit of mostly vacant and decaying 70s-early 90's blight before hitting that nice stretch with Kohl's, Menards, and Academy.

Cool shot posted on r/kansascity. Looks like they're doing something to the Liberty Memorial fountain/reflecting pool

It’s been out of service since at least last spring. I have no idea when the last time the fountains on the north side were functioning.

Re: Bluhawk

All this while retail on 135th/Santa Fe has never been able to establish itself. That includes Martin City, Olathe, Leawood, and OP that all have spotty half failing developments.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Restoration Hardware was open 1999-2017? Gucci is still open Gucci isn't open anymore and Restoration Hardware closed in August 2016. What happened to them relocating to the Halls building? They announced it and then BAM, Leawood. Town Center Plaza is a hot mess right now too. It’s not being kept u...

Re: Outlet Mall update

So this means that H&M has given up on Prairie Fire Phase II ever happening. Abercrombie is a dying company and couldn't survive at Independence Center or Town Center Plaza. I think the Zona Rosa store closed too as well as the Plaza. They will probably close their Oak Park Mall store in favor of th...

Re: What does it need

It's South of here and we need a Board that includes other area's in KS/MO that are in KC area. Considering that we don't have that for the MO side, I would have to disagree. That leasing plan is also a mess. It's implying that Emporia can handle another 100,000 ft2 General Merchandise store? What ...

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

Wichita city proper probably only has growth because they are annexing a lot of areas. If u Google wichita and see there city limits there is an island that is like 30 miles SW of Wichita by Viola KS. That can't be part of the city can it? Looks like it's a police-related facility owned by the city...

Is Menards the only company like it that buys so much land and leases out parcels itself? I don't feel like most other big-box stores operate that way.
I think so. They've been better at developing their area of a power center they anchor in my home town than the owner of the other half has been.
