I've been to KC several times (lots of family nearby), and I have to say that the plaza is one of ther cooler placs that I've been to. I wonder why this type of development has not been attempted anywhere else?

Thanks...

Developers constantly try and "attempted" elsewhere, but it just can't be done ;).

Got any more pics of the bottoms areas? Last time I was there I had a ball going through those old brick buildings. Are they being torn down, or gentrified or anyhting?

Now that I think about it, the kc airport is probably the worst one I've ever been in. You have to leave security to reach the restroom. Individual checkpoints for each gate don't help transfers either.

Last time i was there, i saw that several malls in the southwest corner of the metro were nearly abandoned. One i went to in olathe had about one store open. Is tis area experiencing a severe downturn? If so, why? I understand that it is one of the more desirable areas in the metro.
