Legends Outlets Kansas City, formerly The Legends at Village West, is a super-regional shopping mall located in the Village West development near Kansas City, Kansas, located in the latent township Kansas City, Kansas. The mall has a gross leasable area of 1,200,000 square feet (110,000 m2). [1]

The shopping center is part of a more than $500 million investment, surrounded by the Kansas Speedway, Hollywood Casino, Children's Mercy Park, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Great Wolf Lodge, AMC Theatres Legends 14, Cabela's and CommunityAmerica Ballpark. The Legends at Village West is still an ongoing project as there are more developments in the planning stage. The shopping center offers more than 110 retail/restaurant outlets including Dave & Buster's, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Wendy's and Fuddruckers. New stores include Best Buy (closed May 2012), JCPenney, Target, Sam's Club, Walmart, TJ Maxx and Kohl's.

The Legends at Village West includes an audio walking tour of the more than 80 Kansans who are represented visually on medallions, posters, murals and in sculpture throughout the center. The Legends honors legends of Kansas in athletics, music, exploration, science, technology, politics, art and other fields. The Legends theme is interwoven throughout the facility, offering information about Kansas’ history, heritage and environment. Each corridor and courtyard of the center is dedicated to a particular category of famous Kansans or aspect of the state and its history, such as a replica of The Wizard of Oz's Yellow Brick Road. The mall and surrounding development were highlighted in the Wall Street Journal by Kevin Helliker, discussing the area's resurgence. [2]

The mall was foreclosed on in 2012 and renamed Legends Outlets Kansas City. [3] After forming a new company, the original developer, Dan Lowe, bought the property out of receivership. [4]
