OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) - After five years of sitting vacant, a metro company says they have big plans for the old Metcalf South Shopping Center.
Shamrock Trading Corporation recently filed a site plan and phasing information for the abandoned mall, located at 95th Street and Metcalf Avenue.
Shamrock, currently located across the street from the site has three phases planned for the project.
, plans to build a 12-story building where the Metcalf South was. The new building will come in three phases.
Phase one would include a 12-story building that would house the company's new office space, more than 1,000 parking spaces and a restaurant.
Phases two and three will feature two more office buildings that will be connected to the main building with a roof patio. Three more parking structures would also be added.
The financial services and transportation company is growing and has quickly out grown their space across the street.
Shamrock recently announced their plans to buy the 30 acre lot and add 1,000 employees over the next four years as the new buildings are completed. They say the salaries for the positions will range from $50,000 to $60,000.
The company is currently seeking candidates to fill those new positions. Shamrock Chief Operating Officer Tom Sullivan says things are still early.
“We are still in the very early stages of this project and these preliminary plans are always subject to change until the approval process is completed,” Sullivan said.
They hope to begin the first phase of construction in 2019.
