Prairie Village strip malls getting a facelift

89-Roe

The small retail development at 89th Street and Roe Avenue is getting its first significant renovation in 15 years.

Crews are in the process of revamping the facade of the two retail buildings that house The Body Bar and Active Health Solutions, among other clients.

Greg Hoefer of the Tutera Group, which owns the properties, said the work is expected to be completed within 30 days. The north building was built in the mid-1970s, and the south building was added in the late 1980s. Neither have had significant work done to them since.

“It was time to do some work to rejuvenate the look,” Hoefer said.

There are currently two vacancies in the retail buildings that Hoefer said the company has prospects to fill.
