Current Development Projects

Gateway Rendering2 Jan 2019Page last updated: August 21, 2019

(Roe and Johnson Drive) - Work has started on the Cinergy development on the eastern side of the site. The Johnson County Wastewater sewer main will be connected to the site, requiring the right southbound lane of Roe Blvd. to be closed. That closure is expected to last until the end of September. Construction of the apartments over first floor retail on the western side of the site began last fall. In mid-December, Cinergy Entertainment Group, Inc. announced that they would be joining the project with plans to open in 2020. The Cinergy timeline drove the need to move construction of the three story parking structure forward in the project phasing, requiring the developer 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. Work has since resumed. In late June, plans for the Marriott Element hotel, located at the Shawnee Mission Parkway/Roeland Drive corner of the site, were submitted and reviewed, and the first set of comments are back to the project team. 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. 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 one and two bedroom market rate apartments over small retail spaces.
  • 90,000 sq.ft. of retail/entertainment space, Cinergy Entertainment Group, Inc. elevated rope course with zip lines, a game floor, virtual reality attractions, 16 bowling lanes, and a high-end movie theater.
  • 40,000 sq.ft. food hall currated by Tom Colicchio.
  • 200 room Element Hotel.


Mission Trails Rendering 2018

Mission Trails Project (6201 Johnson Drive) - Construction is ongoing. The next major step in construction will be the construction of the parking garage. Beverly Avenue will be closed at some points in this phase, to accommodate the large crane that is required for the assembly of the garage. The project is a multi-family/mixed-use project by EPC Real Estate Group. Designed to match the city’s mission architectural style. The project developer is EPC Real Estate Group. Leasing is expected to begin in the early fall of 2020.

The project will include: 
  • 200 luxury apartments with interior courtyard and balconies
  • 5,000 ground level restaurant space with large exterior courtyard facing the street.
  • A multi-story parking garage with 50 spaces of public parking on the ground level.

Tidal Wave Single Story RenderingTidal Wave Auto Spa (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 was approved City Council on July 17. The owner has completed the majority of demolition of the previously existing building. Construction is anticipated to be completed in 9 months and will begin soon.
