There is a sense of excitement in Grandview. The City remains aggressive in seeking out profitable public-private partnerships, and as a result, is in the middle of its greatest economic boom in the past 40-50 years.
The excitement about the future is fueled by several major economic development projects. Perhaps the biggest is the transformation of Truman Corners, a nearly empty 60 year old mall being renovated and redeveloped into Truman's Marketplace. The new shopping center is quickly adding major retail stores like Burlinton, TJmaxx and Petco and is already having a direct impact on the City’s economic vitality.
Gateway Village Sports Complex
Billed as the largest amateur sports complex in the state of Missouri, Gateway Village Sports Complex will soon call Grandview home. The huge complex of soccer fields and thousands of square feet in retail space will be located along the Highway 150 corridor. The Mayor and Board of Aldermen unanimously approved the Conceptual Development Plans for the complex and are now trying to finalize financial incentives that work for everyone.
National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Facility
The City of Grandview is now the home to the NOAA facility, which serves as the nationwide center for weather tracking and associated technology and equipment testing and re-conditioning. We worked closely with the developer on the facility lease and incentive package to bring this project to fruition. This facility houses more than 80 employees with an average income in the $100,000 range.
Other areas of expansion include:
- The Sika Corporation had a 36,785 sf warehouse expansion, $1.9M capital investment.
- EuroTool had 6,325 sf warehouse expansion, $300,000 capital investment.
- Prier Products had 25,845 sf warehouse expansion, $1.8M capital investment.
