Uncertainty Surrounds the Mission Gateway Project in Kansas City

For nearly 17 years, the Mission Gateway project has been in planning stages, aiming to redevelop the former Mission Mall property in Kansas City. However, the project’s future remains uncertain due to ongoing litigation and tax claims.

City Officials Await Resolution

City officials, including Mayor Sollie Flora, have little choice but to wait for the legal proceedings to unfold. Flora stated that the city is “monitoring the situation, but the litigation has to play out.” In the meantime, the city has been careful to protect its interests in the redevelopment agreement process.

Financial Support and Incentives

Developers were initially promised up to $22.5 million in special obligation bonds to support the development. However, no incentives or bonds have been distributed for the project, which is located off Shawnee Mission Parkway near Roe Avenue and Johnson Drive. Mayor Flora emphasized that their efforts have focused on protecting the city’s interests and that no incentives have been distributed.
