In July 2016,demolition began on the exterior of what was known as White Oak Plaza. Located near the corner of Highway 7 and 40, this area was long identified by residents as a potential space for redevelopment. Construction will take place in three phases. Phase I will include a new 85,000-square-foot Cosentino’s Price Chopper with a 6,000-square-foot attached retail space. Phase II and III includes a proposed senior residential community for seniors and several retail or restaurant sites.
Construction has started on the 36,000-square-foot St. Luke's specialty clinic located on the southeast corner or Adams Dairy Parkway and R D Mize Road. The clinic will feature primary care providers, imaging and lab areas along with specialists who can address particular care needs. “Adding a Blue Springs site has been in our strategic plan for a number of years,” Bob Bonney, Saint Luke’s senior vice president of non-acute services and development, said in an email. The building will be designed to expand as needed; the target date for completion is mid-2017.
The 10,125 square foot office building will primarily house Reece Nichols with 8,095 square feet of office space. An additional 2,030 square foot tenant space is on the west end of the building.
