I'm always fascinated at the number of dead malls in KC, just waiting for redevelopment....

Broker is hired to find a new use for abandoned Indian Springs Mall

The future of the vacant Indian Springs Mall, as desolate as it is visible along Interstate 635, is poised to be the responsibility of Lane4 Property Group, a local real estate firm familiar with urban redevelopment.

The Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan., which bought the mall in 2007, plans to hire Lane4 as its broker for the shopping center. It’s the first time the Unified Government has reached out to the private sector for help on finding a new use for the obsolete mall at I-635 and State Avenue.

The 700,000-square-foot enclosed shopping center opened in 1971 and lost its last anchor department store in 2001.

“Our intent is to get someone in on the site with a good background in urban redevelopment and mixed-use projects,” said Doug Bach, deputy county administrator for economic development. “We think Lane4 brings that together.”
