For quite a few of the establishments that have left Zona Rosa the volume of business wasn’t the issue. Unreasonable lease hikes and other squabbles with the management led to their exit. At least according to the folks I’ve talked to. Of course several retailers and restaurants have been closing stores nationwide so that’s led to some vacancies as well.

Anyone know the occupancy level of the apartments? Seems like a good way to get additional spending in the district is to build more apartments. Or a couple of hotels.

This isn't the first time a developer uses a name that makes no sense geographically.

They can call it Twin Creeks all they want and it's still not inside the Twin Creeks watershed

Can we just limit these two to this thread? Seems best for all.

Even their website shows their shrinking occupancy.

https://www.zonarosa.com/about-us/
Zona Rosa is the area’s PREMIER FASHION AND DINING DESTINATION, with over 100 merchants and restaurants
67 merchants
23 restaurants

Does not add up to greater than 100

Changes!

https://www.kansascity.com/news/busines ... 23395.html
Zona Rosa Town Center will demolish some storefronts to make way for a new outdoor green space as the first part of a major redevelopment effort to improve the outdoor shopping center in Kansas City’s Northland.

Managers of the outdoor shopping center this week announced a multi-million-dollar redevelopment of the mall that will begin this fall and conclude by spring 2021. The mall, which currently has dozens of vacancies, will demolish the building just south of the Dillard’s department store to make way for a new green space called North Park.

“It’s obvious that this alone is not going to fix Zona Rosa,” said Scott Zigler, the mall’s general manager. “This is a major first step of the kinds of things we will be doing going forward.”

I don't think they ever had full occupancy on the northern half of the center.

Went through it in maybe May and it was like downtown in 2000, tons of empty space.

That's what happens when you build an isolated, suburban shopping district in a field bounded by highway. Zona Rosa was set up for failure as anything more than simply a shopping center from the beginning. Nobody's going to frequent the aforementioned as a "destination", and that's not going to change with the addition of a park and some green space. This place is what it is. A shopping center. Nothing more. Period.
