That is an outdated brochure as it shows the Cosmosphere as still part of the plan (although it isn't labeled). They have built a small retail strip center out there lately though.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Construction begins on Nordstrom with the fencing off of the construction area and part of the parking garage. Should be a cluster during Plaza Art Fair, with the only entrances on 47th and the side street (Summit?). https://www.kansascity.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/cityscape/article230167...

Re: Quiktrip

A Top Golf employee told me that they are interested in the site for more parking. It’s very possible a QT and extra Top Golf parking could fill the space. Another QT employee said it was likely they are going to build a store there.

Re: Quiktrip

...or keep the Roe store and have two. I am sure they can keep both of them busy. Doubtful. When they built the new QT on SM Pkwy in Shawnee, they didn't say anything about closing the one at Neiman and 67th, but they ended up closing it a month after the new one opened. I believe they actually sai...

But can just expand on back on it.
No, an employee told me several years ago (after they added the QT Kitchen), that was as big as they could go. There is a creek/small ravine behind the building, as well as apartment building.

A replacement for Roe and 435, I have no doubt. That store is too small for the business it gets.

Does anyone know what's going on at the NE corner of 79th & Metcalf? They tore up the surface lot recently and have been moving quite a bit of dirt the past few days.
I heard it is yet another apartment building. The Winstead’s site is also slated to be one.

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

Yep, the official line was that Cinergy wanted their building done ASAP, and all the trailers and stuff were sitting on the Cinergy pad. So, out it all went. Now I assume they are trying to mobilize the contractors back to the site since it is graded and ready to go. I get the impression the contra...

Grading for the Cinergy pad was completed over a week ago. Fences were adjusted, grass was mowed, and not much else since then.
And if I am not mistaken, the construction trailers have all been removed.

Re: Menards to Village East

Menards is well underway. None of those illustrations for Village East show anything remotely resembling the current construction. Speaking of Village West, what happened to the Hard Rock hotel project?

Actually that has to be older as there is no Menards in that rendering!

Re: Prariefire at Lionsgate - large mixed use development

It's still going to have an ice rink? I assume that's the "Arbor Plaza" area. And the little retail building on the corner must be the Andy's Frozen Custard.

As of February 1st they were blaming the weather, yes, but also on lack of personnel:

Re: Hy-Vee wants to expand

Looks like they want to renovate that store and expand it. It's at least 25 years old so it's long overdue. As are renovations in Shawnee and Lenexa. Better to renovate than to pull out (like they did in Leawood - but there they wanted public money to help the financing).

that link didn't work for me either, but i hear they will open one at 103rd and Metcalf.
That would probably mean tearing down the old Winstead's, eh? I would have thought they could also go next to the new Lowe's up the street.

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

Any news on the Hard Rock hotel or Menards store supposedly going in out there? Seems like projects move really slow getting developed in that area.
