LANE4 Property Group, Inc. has welcomed several new tenants to Red Bridge Shopping Center, and the new additions continue to benefit both local businesses and the surrounding communities as the center grows into fruition. “The redevelopment of Red Bridge Shopping Center by LANE4 has been a great example of collaboration with surrounding neighborhoods to bring back what residents wanted, which included a hardware store and a restaurant,” said City Councilman Scott Taylor. “We now have both and welcome Blue Moose Bar & Grill to the neighborhood.” Thanks to community involvement and partnerships, the center has improved from 47% to 75% capacity in the past year.
In addition to the announcement of Blue Moose, a new aerial fitness center also joined the Red Bridge community. Aerial fitness became popular initially in New York City and Los Angeles, but the gravity defying fitness trend is beginning to spread across the country. The addition of Silks & Poles Aerial Fitness will bring the trend directly to Kansas City, offering a new unique fitness experience to the center.
Earlier this year, Wonderscope Children’s Museum and Mid-Continent Library announced their intentions to develop a 50,000 SF state-of-the-art building which will house a 30,000 SF Children’s Museum and a 20,000 SF public library branch at Red Bridge. They are currently working on designs for the facility and are undergoing a capital campaign to finance the project, which is targeting 2018 for groundbreaking. Alongside the other tenants, the addition of the children’s museum will attract new customers and offer new education opportunities to the surrounding communities. “We are committed to making Red Bridge a unique community-oriented shopping center, so welcoming new experience-based tenants to complement Wonderscope gets us one step closer to achieving that,” said Brandon Buckley, Vice President of LANE4. “We look forward to releasing more new tenant announcements soon.”
