Macy's Departure To Leave Retail Hole in Prairie Village

By Ian Ritter About 120,000 square feet of retail space will become vacant when Macy's shuts its doors at Prairie Village Shopping Center. The city's mayor, Eric Mikkelson, announced at a city council meeting that the center's owner First Washington Realty, told him that the store will close.

It’ll be torn down and reconfigured into restaurant spaces. The Village is becoming one big food hall.

This is probably the most prime shopping location for the right retailer. It's physical proximity to Mission Hills, Old Leawood, and the increasingly prosperous (thank you tear downs) Prairie Village make makes it a convenient spot for upscale shoppping. Plus, it has more "Kansas City" shops and restaurants than the Plaza which gives it more character than the other destination retail areas in KC. That's what upscale consumers want. Nordstrom would have been a good fit. I can see a similar upscale larger retail store filling this space or a larger scale redevelopment of the South side of the development for more restaurants/shops. Macys leaving is a win win for PV shops and neighbors.

Turn it into condos for homosexuals. Fits right in with the Fairy Village plan, in fact call it "The Condoms of Fairy Village"

Hopefully nothing that draws the blacks in. Right now the Village is the only place in town they haven’t ruined.

A 1,000 foot space needle restaurant. The views would be great.

Section 8 high rise for employees of the modern version of a plantation surrounding it. Plus it would help put some diversity in the face of the pathetic liberals that live around there.

Its already been slated for high rise apartments. The owner/developer has noticed the success of condos in old downtown Overland Park, the location at 90th and Metcalf (by 1/2 price books) and with the sky high home prices which fewer can afford - the units will be a sure fire money maker. I wish i could find a way to invest in it. All the good deals are run by limited partnership and they will not let the average Joe invest. But it will be 6 to 10 storys high with pool, food court etc.

Had the locals supported the store it would stay. But shopping at Town Center became so much more popular. So its gone!

Rows of glory holes for the TKC commenting (bi-curious) homophobes.

They are tired of driving out to rural highway rest stops.

gay men have evolved away from cracked-out testosterone debauchery of glory holes, they get married. they are legitimate with intimate sensitive feelings, not lewd self satisfying crotch gluttons.
