My avatar is a picture of the tallest building in Salina. I have this because my Mother was born in nearby Abilene and her Grandfather was not only one of the original principles of the United Telephone Company (now known as Sprint) in Abilene, he formed an insurance company in Salina and built the  building to house it.


A few clips from a publication about it.





And then he went and built the Sunflower Hotel in Abilene......


So, this stuff is in my DNA.

On January 14, 2020, the City of Wichita unveiled a 'Riverfront Legacy Master Plan'  described as follows:


The plan is comprised of four types of projects including performing arts, green space, convention center and infrastructure. The plan also incorporates 17 major capital projects, including:

  • New performing arts
  • New convention center to generate tax revenue
  • 10 acres of green space (including a new park along the riverfront)
  • Funding for programming and maintenance of parks
  • New mixed-use components to drive economic growth
  • New pedestrian bridge to connect the site to the new ballpark

These projects are meaningful and can generate income and impact for our community. Once complete, the 10-year total economic impact potential for the site is $915-$970 million.





I haven't followed Wichita development closely, but I do feel from what I know this project will go a long way toward building a more complete city. There is a wonderful video on the process used to develop these plans.
