Congratulations to the City of Grandview and the Truman’s Marketplace project team on the recent announcement as a 2017 Capstone Award winner by the Kansas City Business Journal.
This challenging redevelopment project by Legacy Development of the Truman Corners Shopping Center involved many of our team members at Yaeger Architecture as the firm served as Project Architect. The 52-acre project site contained 540,000 square feet of retail space, divided among three main in-line buildings plus pad sites. Overall upgrades to the center included remodeled facades to most tenants, improved landscaping, and an Armed Forces Memorial, which connects with the National Park Service Truman Farmstead Historic Site behind the center, where the Truman farm home still stands.
A tenant mix including Price Chopper, Burlington Coat Factory, Ross, TJ Maxx, Shoe Carnival, Five Below, rue 21, Petco, and more has revitalized and engaged the community. The center now successfully attracts both area residents and visitors to Kansas City, as it sits on the perimeter of the southeast metro area and is a landmark entrance into the community of Grandview.
Other members of the project team included: BSE Structural Engineers, Malone Finkle Eckhardt & Collins Consulting Engineers, Confluence, and Olsson Associates.
