OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) -- Construction is under way in northeastern Kansas on a massive retail and housing development that will also feature an American Museum of Natural History exhibition hall.

KSHB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/11kVWwD ) groundbreaking on the first phase of the 60-acre Prairiefire project took place Thursday in southern Overland Park.

The schedule calls for the first phase to open in October with a Fresh Market gourmet grocery store and an REI store, the first in Kansas and western Missouri for the outdoor and sporting goods outfitter.

Additional retail space, apartments and a large space for exhibits from New York's American Museum of Natural History are expected to open in 2014.

Overland Park is located just over the state line from Kansas City, Mo.
