Repurposing an arena is not a common undertaking. Yet design firm Foutch Brothers and general contractor McCownGordon Construction did exactly that, transforming Kansas City’s Kemper Arena into the reimagined Hy-Vee Arena.
Completed in October 2018 at a cost of $28 million, Hy-Vee Arena is a symbol for the burgeoning West Bottoms neighborhood. The facility is designed to host regional and national sports tournaments and is the first multilevel sports complex in the country. In addition to serving as an arena for basketball and volleyball, it is also home to the nation’s longest indoor running track (350 meters).
