Will Kansas City Taxpayer Funded Plans To Revive Metro North Mall Site Work?!!?
Of course Metro North mall in its current condition is a decrepit and sad testament to the nature of fickle American suburbanite consumers . . . It's also the subject of our favorite promo commercial in Kansas City history.
However, there's no telling if the current plan will fix the sad state of affairs given the rise of Internets shopping, competition from Zona Rosa and the changing demographics of the increasingly broke-ass Northland.
Here's today's update:
Rezoning approved for Metro North Mall in KCMO
"The latest plans include keeping Macy's, demolishing the rest of the existing mall and building a two-level shopping center. That will include more than 700,000 square feet of retail and office space.
"Within that, the plan lists a theater, grocer, health club, and other anchor tenant yet to be announced as well as several other stores.
Additional restaurants, a 100-room hotel, and 150 apartment units are also part of the site plan."
Accordingly . . .
Will this plan work or is it just City Hall continually funding the schemes of the many insiders connected to this deal?!?!?
You decide . . .
