New movie theater in limbo
A much anticipated theater developed hit a snag last week. The proposed New Longview project, planned by Liberty-based B&B Theater, is now in jeopardy according to a piece from the Lee's Summit Journal's Russ Pulley. Last week, the Lee's Summit City Council voted against considering an ordinance allowing the project to continue moving forward. Much of the debate on the proposed 13-acre project centered less around the theater and more on the mix of businesses and the city's need for more multi-family housing.

More than a year after an EF1 tornado damaged the Douglas Station Shopping Center, Cohen Equities has sold the property to a Kansas City-based investment group. The Kansas City Business Journal's Rob Roberts reports that LS Investors One, LLC purchased the property for an undisclosed amount from Cohen Equities, a New York City-based commercial real estate firm. LS Investors One is comprised partially of members of Kansas City-based Newmark Grubb Zimmer, a commercial real estate firm with an office in Lee's Summit.
