New tenants and changes at Zona Rosa


KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City will open the first Live Blue center, an innovative retail location focused on wellness and education at Zona Rosa in August. Additionally Victoria's Secret PINK is slated to open this fall and the current Victoria's Secret Store will be completely remodeled, operating for several months out of a temporary space during the renovations.

Live Blue will open in a nearly 4,000-square-foot space at 8530 NW Prairie View Rd. offering classes and access to courses on a variety of healthy lifestyle topics such as fitness, nutrition and cooking. The center will also host local running and biking clubs and will be a valuable resource for those seeking support and answers about the changing world of healthcare. Live Blue is a natural extension for Blue KC, which is committed to the health and wellness of its members and the community at large.

PINK, launched in 2004, is Victoria's Secret's popular fully articulated lifestyle collection for young women. The new store will occupy about 4,500-square-feet and will open at 7111 NW 86th Ter.

Victoria's Secret, which opened at Zona Rosa when the center opened in 2003, will undergo a full store remodel in its 6,888-square-foot space. In the interim, the store will relocate to 8721 N. Stoddard Ave, in the Dillard’s District.
