Our vision is to not just build a facility that does justice to the spirit of The K. We want to construct a world-class experience – a new ballpark district and all that comes with it – one that is woven into the fabric of our city, can host events and concerts, and boosts our local economy. We also envision incorporating our Kansas City fountains, the Royals’ crown and our team’s rich traditions and history in a new ballpark district. We will marry the traditions of The K with a better experience for our fans.
View presentations from our December 13, 2022 community meeting that provide details on the current state of The K, a parking and transportation comparison, an overview of the extensive economic and other benefits of a new ballpark district, and an exploration of the trends and other data points that are driving decisions on what the new ballpark district will feature and where it will be located.
This presentation details the current state of The K, offering numerous photos of the current maintenance challenges.
This presentation explores ballpark trends, fan trends, and district trends. It also shows the ways in which the proposed new district needs to be more than a ballpark.
Ballpark-anchored districts have created substantial economic and fiscal benefits for their respective cities and region. See the historical benefit numbers for other ballpark districts and the potential numbers for downtown and greater Kansas City.
