Lenexa City Center
As the result of Vision 2020, a community-driven planning committee, Lenexa City Center was designed as our new downtown. Combining a mix of shopping, restaurants, entertainment venues, office and living spaces, and hotels, this walkable neighborhood is located at 87th Street Parkway and Renner Boulevard.
The 200-acre district is conveniently located along highly traveled I-435 near the Johnson County Gateway Interchanges where I-35 and I-435, U.S. 69, K-10, and K-7 meet. Lenexa City Hall, Lenexa Rec Center, and Lenexa Public Market are the centerpieces of the area. Close by you can find the Shawnee Mission School District Aquatic Center and a branch of the Johnson County Library system.
