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: Oak Park Mall Update

Zumiez Has moved to a much larger space in the former wet seal. Their old space is vacant in the main hallway, but the new store is quite a bit larger.

Re: Oak Park Mall Update

The lady at Sarausky who commented on the rumor hinted that Microsoft, Lego, coach, White House Black Market, Abercrombie, Hollister, and lush are looking for a way out. Lush just moved into a new spot that's 3-4x bigger than their previous one fairly recent (2 years ago?). I'd be surprised if they...

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...

Re: Oak Park Mall Update

I can't imagine Dillard's holding on to both north and south spaces much longer. They have very few doubleheader operations left anywhere in the country. A lot of the brands that are disappearing from the women’s store we pulled out of independence years ago and Zona Rosa a couple years after it op...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

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. The Cerner mistake has happened and poorly executed. SKC still needs to make the most of it. The glaring problem is still the th...

Re: Prairie Village

I talked to an assistant manager at the store and PV has wanted the store gone for ages. Macy's had started renovating part of the store (they only got to part of the 3rd floor and the customer service area), but it was implied that they were not being allowed to stay. Several years ago when the sho...

Are there any pre-construction design renderings or early publicity photos of crown center out there? I swear I saw some early designs on here once, but I can’t find them.

Re: Downtown Overland Park

No one I know my age has any interest in moving to downtown OP or Lenexa City Center. Rent is pricy, the building exteriors are ugly and boring, and there's still nothing to do after 6:00pm. Next! The look is subjective and for all we know, everyone you know your age is 3 other people. Compared to ...

Does anyone know if forever 21 is closing on the plaza or are they still negotiating the lease rates? I’ve been told that’s the location targeted for the largest CVS in the city. As we know, The Country Plaza desperately needs a drug store! Is that site big enough for an Urban Target? Target hasn't...

Re: Poll: Does the Plaza need a drastic change, some change or on the right path?

If free bus turns out to be a permanent metro wide service, the Plaza could probably lose some parking - as well as with free streetcar going by in 5 years or so. But for the most part, there would need to be a good amount of garage space for what is a regional draw and there's quite a bit. Plaza o...

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.
