On November 14, the Overland Park Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve our final development plan for the southeast corner of 95th and Metcalf. This is the site of the existing Metcalf South Mall, but does not include the Sears store which is under different ownership.
The plan contemplates a Lowe’s Home Improvement store and pad sites for restaurants and retailers. The final development plan is scheduled to go before the City Council for final approval on December 5, 2016.
We continue to work hard on different possibilities for the northeast corner of the intersection (where the former Kmart stands), and hope to report progress on this portion of the project next year.
The Overland Park City Council voted unanimously last week to approve our Preliminary Development Plan for 95Metcalf South. We thank everyone who has shown their support, and are eager to continue bringing this project to fruition.
We are getting to work immediately on the last step in the approval process—the Final Development Plan—which will hopefully be approved before the end of the year. Once the approval process is wrapped up, we are excited to get to work on demolition of the mall and construction of the new project.
We are pleased to announce that the Overland Park Planning Commission has approved our 95Metcalf South plan. This is great news for our project, and allows us to keep the planning and design process moving forward. We thank each and every one of you for your continued encouragement.
Our next step is to appear before the Overland Park City Council on August 1 to request site plan approval. The City Council meeting will begin at 7:30 pm in the Council Chamber and is open to the public. We encourage you to attend the meeting and voice your support, or contact the officials listed previously to express your support of the project.
