KKR Real Estate Fund Holdings offered $131.5 million for the shopping center at an auction Friday. That group includes RED Legacy of Kansas City and the New York investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. A backup bid of $131 million was submitted by CRG Acquisitions LLC.

The prevailing bid was to be determined Monday, but no updates were available Monday night.
