Mission Gateway developer says it’s signed entertainment tenant; winter weather hampers construction

The site of the Mission Gateway mixed-used development at Johnson Drive and Roe hasn’t had much construction activity in the past few weeks — and it’s raised some questions from Mission residents.

Development on the Mission Gateway project has stalled during the winter weather the past few weeks, but developers have landed an entertainment tenant.

Developers say the lack of activity has been on account of the cold as well as the ice and snow from winter storms. Besides that, GFI, the development partner working with Cameron Group LLC lead Tom Valenti on the project, has two other major projects in the Kansas City area and only has so much personnel to go around.
