Can New Boss Save Independence Center???

A corporate takeover amid foreclosure could sink or save an economically struggling part of town . . . Then again, selling off assets might also be even more profitable. Here's the happy talk that nearby residents are desperate to believe . . .

I like the plan to reinvigorate the mall. First, they need to denegroate the mall.

Just save time and re-name it " the LANDING EAST Shopping Center".
Then the Plaza can be "The LANDING WEST".

I hope the new boss has a clear understanding of what killed other malls in Kansas City.

Why do people who actually have money stay away from the malls? What is it that is driving them away?

Lee's Summit has several high quality out door shopping areas. The Money will not visit independence center. The teenager's have taken over independence center. You can't do business with someone who don't Have any money.

I did a little research on the lady who is going to be promoting the mall, shes an Arab women, from south Cal. and like everyone else is saying, she is going to have to be very careful who she caters to or it will still be a disaster. The new Plaza owners aren't doing the Plaza any favors either.

Days from closing and yet it struggles on.

The day Tony gets something right should be a local holiday or something.

Install plenty of cameras clearly label so everyone knows they are there. Convert the abandoned Applebee's into a Independence police substation.
