Overland Park, Kan. — Price Brothers has unveiled plans for the next phase of Bluhawk, a $750 million, 277-acre mixed-use project in Overland Park.
The $205 million Project Area 1 will deliver a 120,000-square-foot civic and community center/arena, a 300,000-square-foot indoor multi-sport complex, 70,000 square feet of new restaurant and retail space and a 99-room hotel. The development is already home to a 122,500-square-foot, grocery-anchored center. Sports venue operator Sport Stable will operate the amateur sport complex. The interest in bringing an amateur hockey team to the area drove the team to develop the arena and sport complex first, according to developers.
