Kansas City, MO -  A large redevelopment project is underway at the former site of the Metro North Mall in the KC Northland.

The $192 million project, dubbed Metro North Crossing, is rising on the 106-acre site of the former mall. The mall closed in 2014. 

The first phase of the project will open soon, according to David Horn, project manager and developer of Metro North Crossing.

Think Top Golf, but more. 

"We are in the process of constructing the 'T-Shotz' concept, and it will be open by Spring of next year," Horn said. "The Spring of 2020."

Horn said the area has been underserved for a long time.

"Frankly, I think the Northland has been overlooked for a long time," Horn said. "When you live in an environment, and are working in an environment, you become more exposed to it. And I can assure you that the Northland, that's where the growth is."

The project will include 650,000 square feet of retail space; 85,000 square feet of office space; a hotel; and nearly 300 luxury apartments units when the final phase is completed by 2025.

Developers say that at full buildout and capacity, Metro North Crossing will employ more than 1,400 people. 

The only remaining portion of the old mall is a Macy's store.  It has remained open while the mall was demolished around it.  It is expected to remain open and be part of the new redevelopment project.
