$305 million plan for Great Mall site envisions a mixed-use sports destination

Developers envision a $305 million plan for the site of the razed Great Mall of the Great Plains in the Kansas City suburbs.

An application to finance the project proposes a mixed-use project with a heavy emphasis on sports and fitness.

It would also incorporate entertainment venues, restaurants, retail space, office and medical office space, hotels, residential units and public spaces that could draw nearly 1.8 million visitors a year to the underused site in Olathe, Kansas.

The redevelopment could include a 4,000-5,000 seat arena and a community ice sheet for youth hockey tournaments and practice, interactive golf, and rock climbing.
