The developers of Metro North Crossing have broken ground on upscale apartments that will be part of Main Street Village, a mixed-use complex featuring office, retail and housing.
Formerly the site of Metro North Mall, the 93-acre Metro North Crossing is already home to the T-Shotz golf entertainment complex set to open this month. The entire center is expected to open in fall, 2021.
Metro North opened in 1976 and was a major shopping destination for the Northland and Greater Kansas City. The current redevelopment is guided by the same group that successfully rebuilt Antioch Center and Blue Ridge Mall. Some 1,400 workers are expected for the $187.5-million complex when it is complete.
The residential project now under way will offer 249 one- and two-bedroom apartments and 36 two-story townhomes. The townhomes will sit above 30,000 square feet of retail, office and restaurants. Amenities will include a swimming pool, clubhouse and exercise facilities.
