An unusually involved Community Development Committee meeting in Mission on 7/10. Relevant excerpt from minutes page 6, "Department Updates":
Ms. Smith stated the development section of the City’s website has been updated with current information on various development and construction projects throughout the City. Going forward, this will be updated on a regular basis and information will also be included in the monthly email newsletter. She also noted that there have been questions recently about progress at The Gateway Project. A lease with Cinergy has been signed by the developers and they are re-evaluating their phasing of the project. Additional wastewater permitting was needed for the project and this has been addressed. Mr. Scott stated permits for the footings for Cincergy [sic] are in process. Councilmember Quinn asked who the contractor is and Mr. Scott stated VCC, a company that specializes in the construction of theaters. Plans for the hotel have been submitted. Mr. Scott also stated they anticipate the apartments to get underway this fall.

City Council meeting was tonight at 7. Aside from, er, impassioned debate about whether the proposed Tidal Wave Auto Spa, to replace the derelict Valero station on Johnson Drive, should be permitted to have one story instead of the necessary two per the form-based code,

Mayor Appletoft mentioned that the Gateway developer has given August 1 as the target mobilization date for the latest construction efforts. Fingers crossed, as usual. Black & McDonald work along Roeland Dr is likely traffic signal related, not Gateway-related.

The above-mentioned form-based code squabble will likely result in the council revisiting the FBC altogether, if I'm betting.

Finally some official confirmation that the utility work on Roeland Drive is indeed Gateway-related:
Posted on Tuesday July 23, 2019

Roeland Drive will be closed for wastewater work related to the Mission Gateway project.

Johnson County Wastewater will be installing new wastewater infrastructure that crosses Roeland Drive beginning Tuesday, July 23. The work will require a closure of Roeland Drive, immediately south of Martway Street. Please obey detour signage in the area.

The work is anticipated to last approximately two weeks, weather permitting.

Access to businesses will be maintained throughout the project.

Utility work around the site perimeter was quite intense the past week or so, and now it has slowed somewhat. Meanwhile, a trailer/office has returned and some workers have been clearing vegetation here and there. Based on past remarks, I'd expect work to begin in earnest next week, but that probably depends on how the utility work has been going.

KC Star article today. The usual: work is ramping up but neighbors don't buy it after so many false starts.

Anyway, a new construction trailer and portable toilets have been placed at the site, and utility work around the perimeter continues at a fairly strong pace.

Foundation work has started on the Cinergy side. A crew was working yesteday (Sunday) even, so somebody must be willing to pay to get things going. A good amount of activity today. Holes being bored for piers, rebar being assembled and placed. The various perimeter gates have been named and labeled, and a some folks were out fixing up the fence.

Not much to show you visually, but the crews have been very active the last couple of weeks. They appear to have worked their way all the way across the site pouring piers/piles, so perhaps we'll see something above grade soon.

Utility work underway (stormwater or wastewater, I think) on Roe with the lane nearest the site currently closed. The buried electrical work on the west edge of the property seems to be complete.

The Gateway's Amended Final Development Plan went before the Planning Commission last evening. No minutes posted yet, nor have I heard the outcome, but given city staff's enthusiastic recommendation of the amendments, it presumably passed without any trouble. The amendments are not earth-shattering but do encompass the food hall, Cinergy, and some additional floors of office and hotel.

Staff report, amended plan, and related traffic study bundled together in the commission's meeting packet starting at page 13 (giant PDF warning): https://mission.municipalcms.com/files/ ... AM1715.pdf

I may go snap some photos soon. The progress isn't visually incredible, as most of the work has been subsurface, but they have been working quite steadily.

I'm wondering if they have designed the garage to add additional office/residential space if the garage ends up being under-utilized. Or additional floors on the existing office building.
