Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

Walked the Legends shopping district for the first time in quite a while and was shocked at how much the property on the whole has deteriorated. Trash everywhere and overall condition is in some pretty rough shape. Hopefully, they have some capital improvements dollars socked away because it needs ...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

A close friend who is currently a remote worker for Cener still doesn't know when they'll have to go back to the office, how often they'll have to go, or if they'll ever have to go. They're being told that there's no space for them at the new campus, there's no space for them in Lee's Summit, and th...

Re: Brookside

Panera in Brookside had sign today saying they are closed for good. Over in St. Louis, Paneras/Bread Cos have been closing if they don't have a drive thru. That might be the case over in KC too. Ones in high pedestrian traffic areas like the Central West End, had theirs closed because of no drive t...

Re: Oak Park Mall

Better than nothing I guess. Meanwhile, Towne East in Wichita is landing Daily Thread and Earthbound, both stores with no presence at Oak Park. Simon is also renovating Towne East, which was last updated alongside Oak Park. CBL really needs to do something about the water-scared ceilings and tired c...

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Wait, if Copaken Brooks can't get anything done for over a decade at 13th & Grand , a much more prolific and viable spot, why would anyone think they can get anything done on this parcel? Obviously less $$ will be spent at the old KCPS site, is that why? I don't know why anyone is surprised tha...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

South KC was the high growth suburban area of KC at one time. Raytown was top suburb with good schools. South KC went from rapid growth to none at all literally overnight because the city put a shit ton of section eight housing out there in the Ruskin/Hickman Mills area and created mass white fligh...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

In the meantime most of what I’m seeing on social media lines up with my opinion that the church should be converted to another use rather than demolished. A dense mixed use project is better suited behind the Sharaton or on the Nordstrom site. Heck, demolish the ugly Saks building and the mutilated...

Re: Whole foods

That’s interesting… It’s almost certain that rack would leave the Lenexa center it’s in now across from the mall. CPWM might be looking to exit Martin City as that strip has been dying for a while now. It’s a good thing that area never became the mall Simon wanted to build there.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I'm no expert when it comes to contracts, but wouldn't most agreements like the one with Nordstrom have some sort of contingencies in case they DIDN'T move as planned? I mean an entire parking structure and businesses were demolished with the expectation that Nordstrom would be there. On a side not...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

But if you want to buy anything now you have to go to OP land for just about anything. Northland doesn't have anything either. Maybe it will change over the years but still. A huge black eye for the Plaza . They are better off seeling the pieces to individual partners now and let each group develop...
