Couldn't agree more. Now that the Bingham site is being demolished, it will be interesting to see what goes up there. At least they rejected a Wal-Mart. Wornall south of 75th desperately needs some class, so I hope we'll see a cool multi-unit building with first-floor retail and dining.

Leawood is very nice, closer to attractions than many comparable suburbs, and has a lot of retail and restaurant options. You may end up loving Leawood and staying. There are a lot of charming houses in the area north of 95th that are surprisingly reasonably priced given all the amenities nearby. One of the most underrated parts of the metro.
