Compared to its once-bustling past — the Country Club Plaza has been quieter in recent years,thanks to shuttered storefronts + concerns over crime. Now with a new owner on the horizon, Kansas City wonders what to expect?

Mayor Quinton Lucas and other Kansas City representatives met potential new owners HP Village Partners in Dallas on Tuesday, visiting the luxury shopping district it hopes to fashion the Plaza’s development after.

Mayor Q came back optimistic — citing HP Village Partner’s deep enthusiasm and understanding of the luxury and local influences that make this corner of KC a cultural hub.

CityScene KC reported that new housing, high-end hotels, better security and a more diverse retail experience were all priorities expressed by the potential new owners.
