I miss the old mall. It was a long winter without a place to let the boys run around. Anyways, we finally have a preliminary site layout. The new mall plan is open air and not enclosed.
The plan had a key which identified sizes and uses of each building.
I took more zoomed in screen shots to show the building letters.
One thing about this plan that is similar to the old mall is the acres of surface parking. Unfortunately retailers are still stuck on parking minimums and the associated environmental impacts. This site sits at the top of the Line Creek watershed and the new plan won't change the existing impacts of all the concrete and asphalt. The plan still has the ATA park and ride in the far north part of the site. It's that white triangle thing all by itself in the top middle part of the picture.
I don't know when anything will start nor if they've identified any tenants or the other anchor. More might come out as the developer goes through the site plan approval process. You can read more at the KC Biz Journal here.
I just hope when they start, they take care not to disturb the ghosts at the "haunted" Gash Cemetery.
