New Tenants Bring Fresh Life to Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza

Holiday shoppers at the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri, will be delighted to find a variety of new tenants that have opened their doors in 2023. From trendy apparel brands to a family-friendly escape room, these additions bring fresh life to the shopping district.

Country Club Plaza’s Changing Landscape

The Kansas City shopping district ended 2022 with an 83.3% occupancy rate for 965,000 square feet of gross leasable space, according to an annual report from co-owner The Macerich Co. The company has not yet released the occupancy rate for 2023. The future of the Plaza is in flux, with co-owners Macerich and Taubman Centers defaulting in May on $295.2 million in outstanding acquisition financing. Sources indicated in early October that the joint-venture ownership was looking to sell the iconic property, with the top contender being the Dallas area’s HP Village Partners LP, which owns Highland Park Village shopping center.

Exciting New Tenants in 2023

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the Plaza’s future, several new tenants have opened their doors in 2023, adding excitement and variety to the shopping experience. Some of the new businesses include:

  • Hokibar: a local restaurant offering sushi, build-your-own poke bowls, and other entrées
  • Rowan: a woman-founded ear-piercing studio that uses licensed nurses and features hypoallergenic jewelry
  • The Escape Game: a Nashville-based family-friendly escape room with multiroom sets and story-driven challenges
  • Puttery: an Instagram-worthy upscale mini-golf concept that also sells food and drinks, including beer, wine, and signature cocktails

More New Retailers on the Way

As Country Club Plaza continues to evolve, more new retailers are expected to join the lineup in the coming months, providing even more shopping and entertainment options for visitors.
