Hy-Vee Arena

Sports & Recreation Case Study
The renovation to the historic Kemper Arena in the west bottoms created a facility first of its kind — a state-of-the-art sports environment and hub for hundreds of local, regional and national tournaments each year. Adaptively reusing the former arena, a second level of hardwood sports floors were added to provide more than 84,000 square feet of sports and event space.

One level includes four collegiate courts seating 4,000 spectators and the other features eight high school courts with seating for 5,500. In addition to the two floors of column-free hardwood floors, the facility features one of the largest indoor tracks in the United States, measuring 350 meters perched over the new 52,000-square-foot second floor.

Specialty businesses within the facility include speed and agility training, cross-fit, a fitness gym, hydrotherapy, golf simulators, e-gaming, dining, retail and commercial offices. No other venue in the country provides what Hy-Vee Arena houses under one roof, making this facility the premier location for indoor sports.

The construction of the facility was complex due to the addition of the new structural upper sport floor over the existing lower arena sports floor and seating. The renovation also includes enhancements to the interior environment for the concourses, offices and retail spaces by adding 17 exterior windows. The north and south lower entrances were also renovated to make them more accessible and inviting.
