Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

I have a strong suspicion that the current management is not that keen on the whole project anymore. It will remain an island far into the future, and probably never be built out. But this is just a reflection of the neglect that south KC has seen for decades. It seems stuck in the early 1980s (or e...

Re: Lions Choice

The one in Olathe was packed for weeks when it first opened. The one on Metcalf? Not so much.

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

Reminds me of the total lack of development along State Avenue east of 435 in Kansas City, Kansas. After nearly 20 years there is no spin-off development from Village West. But hopefully that will start to change with the Menard's opening soon.

Re: Downtown Overland Park

I really think these kind of projects that are going to kill any kind of growth in urban KC if they keep building apartments like this in the burbs. I think Young Professionals will choose these types of locations in OP/Lenexa/North KC and bypass the urban core completely especially if rents are ab...

That is an outdated brochure as it shows the Cosmosphere as still part of the plan (although it isn't labeled).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.

Re: Quiktrip

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.

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

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