JoCo Mission Gateway Cursed?!?!

KC Biz Journal broke this news last week but the follow-up regarding one of the biggest embarrassments in Johnson County should speak to newspaper subscribers regarding suburban developer and politico incompetence as well. Checkit:

Mission Gateway: Project proposals come and go, but construction never starts

Before wrecking balls tore through the Mission Center Mall in 2006, the shopping center at Shawnee Mission Parkway and Johnson Drive brought customers by Ray Hanf's business. Hanf, owner of Johnson Drive clothier Mission Fresh Fashion, said the mall's customers would spill westward to small businesses along Mission's main commercial strip.

Could Deffenball use another land fill?

It's a great location but hard to explain to outsiders.

Timing and bad luck.

Developer may not have been big enough to overcome the above.

It could still work beautifully.

Yeah. We need another mall. Lord knows there aren't any others within 50 miles. Especially in Joco. It's a fuckin' retail desert.
