Current Development Projects

Gateway Rendering2 Jan 2019Gateway (Roe and Johnson Drive) - 

Construction of the apartments over first floor retail was started last fall. In mid-December, Cinergy Entertainment Group, Inc. announced that they would be joining the project with plans to open in 2020. The 90,000-square-foot facility will include an elevated rope course with zip lines, a “game floor” with 100 interactive games, virtual reality attractions and 16 bowling lanes, in addition to a high-end movie theater. As a result of the Cinergy timeline, which also drove the need to move construction of the three story parking structure forward in the project phasing, the developer had to secure additional financing for the project. Work was halted in December and in March the developer closed on a private financing package that construction to continue in essentially one continuous phase. Construction activity has been slow to resume, primarily because the developer was waiting for a permit from Johnson County Wastewater to begin work on the Cinergy pad site. That approval has been given, and the City issued a building permit for Cinergy the first week of July. In late June, plans for the Marriott Element hotel, located at the Shawnee Mission Parkway/Roeland Drive corner of the site, were submitted and are being reviewed. Plans for the parking garage are also anticipated in the next few weeks. An architect is currently being selected to design the 40,000-square-foot food hall run by celebrity chef Tom Colicchio. Work to secure a tenant for the office building is on-going. The developer is working with staff and the Council to revise the current construction milestones included in the Redevelopment Agreement approved in December 2017.

The developer has engaged Colliers to assist with leasing. View the Colliers project materials here.

The project will include:

  • 168 apartments over retail (along Roe and Johnson Drive)
  • 100,000+  sq.ft. of retail/entertainment space
  • 40,000 sq.ft. food hall currated by Tom Colicchio
  • 200 room Element hotel

Tidal Wave Auto Wash (6501 Johnson Drive) - The final site plan for the Tidal Wave Auto Wash (6501 Johnson Drive), the former Valero station, was approved in April 2018. The plan included two buildings - a single story car wash tunnel located on the southern portion of the site, and a two story vacuum bay/office building fronting Johnson Drive. Remediation of the underground storage tanks has been completed. The property owner/developer submitted a revised plan that reduced the height of the two story vacuum bay/office building to just one story. The revised plan was recommended for approval by the Planning Commission on June 24, 2019 and will be considered by the City Council on July 17.
