The hole where the Mission Center Mall used to be continues to get bigger and bigger.
In just a few short weeks, destruction crews have taken out two thirds of the Mall at the corner of Roe Avenue, Johnson Drive and Shawnee-Mission Parkway.
I estimate the whole thing will be gone in another two weeks and the end of an era will come to Mission. Not that that's a bad thing.
Anyway, here's what the mall looked like a month ago. As you can see from the series of pictures below, the entire center section that formerly included the atrium and fountains is now gonesville.
I think it's a little humorous that crews put the "Mission" sign outside the big dig. Not sure if it was meant as a joke, but there seems to be some irony there.
Here are the pics.
