Re: Metro North Mall

The real question is where are the mods. mgsports is linking to articles about Olathe, Kansas on the literal opposite side of the metro area in the Metro North Mall discussion forum.

Great googly moogly, I made the mistake of reading comments in that Facebook group. Did you know the Target by Oak Park Mall isn't safe because Kelsey Smith was kidnapped from there... almost 12 years ago?

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. Hard Rock Hotels probably figured out that 110th and I-70 would be the most ridiculous location for a hotel like that in their chain and no matter how...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I don't know if anyone else is thinking this, but I wonder how long the Nordstom will even be there. What happens if they close that location 10 years after rebuilding the parcel? Do they tear it down once again and rebuild? Will this new building be designed to be separated into smaller retail spa...

^ I’d guess that JOCO leaders would require funds go to their area too, like for the Deanna Rose Farmstead. They’re petty like that. They have every right to be "pretty like that."

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

What a bizarre location for a stand alone hard rock hotel. Please tell me this is not another STAR bonded project. That would probably explain a lot. You can “force” a development to happen when you throw enough money at it. StarBonds in the Legends area have actually worked, though. This isn't lik...

Almost impossible to tell from these poor initial renderings, but where is the awesome scallop-roof design from the preliminary images?

^Taubman mentions transitioning retail spaces to more restaurants but that's about it. They need to target much broader than that such as nightlife/cultural venues that target perhaps 40+.

Really though, big props to Town Center off of 119th for continuing to just fleece the Plaza of our premier retail tenants. For the pharphacy lovers, they even have a Walgreens!
