Owners of Kansas City Current Womens’ Soccer Team Announce Plans for $800-Million Mixed-Use Project Along KC Riverfront

April 23, 2024
The project will add more than $200 million in private funding, with all phases of the development exceeding $800 million in total investment. It's expected to break ground at the end of 2024, and the KC Current owners are targeting a 2026 completion date.

The Kansas City Current, in collaboration with Palmer Square Capital Management, Marquee Development, and the Port Authority of Kansas City, Mo. unveiled plans for the next phase of its development on the Missouri Riverfront in downtown Kansas City. Building upon the opening of CPKC Stadium, the first purpose-built women's professional sports stadium in the world, the Current will develop a mixed-use district anchored by the stadium, Berkley Riverfront Park, and the Missouri Riverfront.

To continue the KC Current's commitment to women's sports and the Kansas City region, this next phase will add $200 million-plus in private funding, with all phases of the development exceeding $800 million in total investment. The project will break ground at the end of 2024, targeting a 2026 completion date.

The Current has engaged Perkins Eastman as the Architect for this endeavor. The Perkins Eastman team brings significant expertise from their work on world-class waterfront projects and transit integrated mixed-use districts, including The Wharf in Washington, D.C.; Target Field Station in Minneapolis, MN; Canalside in Buffalo, NY; and Battery Park City in New York.

Angie Long, co-founder and co-owner of the KC Current said, "Kansas City was founded at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers. With the next phase of our investment in Berkley Riverfront Park, our goal is to reconnect Kansas Citians to their riverfront, bringing even more energy and activity to the water. We believe this foundational investment will benefit our community for years to come and cement the Berkley Riverfront as one of Kansas City's great neighborhoods for residents and visitors alike."

Chris Long, co-founder and co-owner of the KC Current, added in the press release, "Cities around the world have recognized the power of embracing their waterfront. The Missouri River is one of Kansas City's crown jewels and our project aims to create an experience unlike any other for our fans, residents, and all Kansas Citians. We are creating an experience on par with some of the best waterfront redevelopment projects in the country. The Berkley Riverfront is the front door to Kansas City and our aim is to make it a world-class destination for all in our region."
