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...

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...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Target needs a downtown store and a plaza store desperately to provide just basic anything for people renting in the area. I hope this means that Nordstrom has plans on renovating the long-neglected Oak Park store and that the higher end brands they’ve been pulling out will make a return.

Re: Macy's Closing Lee's Summit

I could get into the qualms they mentioned with Topeka, Omaha, and Springfield, as well as the dual stores they’re stuck with at Northwest Arkansas Mall and then the entirety of Memphis, but that’s the wrong store, the wrong cities, and the wrong everything at this point lol.

Vineyard Vines and Amazon 4* are currently under construction. Warby Parker and The Shade Store are recent additions to the area at Town Center Crossing. Went into Gap today and they looked about 10 minutes from liquidation.

2. Would you like for me to show you the many broken parking meters in Downtown Lawrence? Only if you can show me that they were just installed in a brand new place just months ago. Otherwise, it isn't relevant. I think the broken parking meter thing could be a sign of other problems that may arise...

Re: Macy's Closing Lee's Summit

It won't make sense to keep both Oak Park and Town Center Plaza stores open. They are too close to each other. It will come down to one of them. I guessing at this, but I think Macy's will try to keep at least one store open in major cities, and in addition to it being the in-house shopping option,...
