WYCO to announce new Village West tenants

October 7, 2004

Next week, officials from the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and RED Development are scheduled to unveil more than a dozen new stores and restaurants that will be located inside the Village West entertainment and tourism district.

Village West is a 400-acre development located at the corners of Interstates 435 and 70; it is home to retail mega- stores like Nebraska Furniture Mart and Cabela's as well as tourist destinations such as the Kansas Speedway.

The announcement for the new businesses are scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12 on the grounds of The Legends of Village West, a 700,000 square-foot open-air shopping center and entertainment district in the midst of development.

Officials with Red Development, the company coordinating the development of The Legends area, will wait until Tuesday to release the list of new Village West tenants and have only said the new businesses will be unique to the area.

However, tenants at previous RED development shopping centers include retailers like Barnes and Noble, Best Buy and Dick's Sporting Goods among others.

The company has stated previously it prides itself on reaching repeat deals with businesses at existing RED shopping centers.
