Downtown Neighborhood Ballpark

The Crossroads site offers an unrivaled opportunity to improve the ballpark’s accessibility and connection to surrounding neighborhoods as well as the entire region. It is located in the economic center of our region and provides a thriving, sustainable environment for major league sports to evolve and prosper. The Crossroads site will ensure success for the Royals as their new home and offer the Chiefs the opportunity to expand their facilities at the Truman Sports Complex – both teams would remain in Jackson County for generations to come.

Accessibility & Connectivity

Downtown Kansas City is home to more than 40,000 parking spaces and 9,000 spots within a 10-minute walk of the proposed stadium. In addition, the Crossroads site is only a few blocks away from the fare-free KC Streetcar that will run from the Riverfront to UMKC. Downtown is a transit hub for our city with 33 existing bus routes connecting our district to east and west side neighborhoods as well as suburbs throughout our region. In addition, Downtown’s Greenline, a 10-mile pedestrian trail, will connect surrounding neighborhoods to the stadium. For the hundreds of thousands of residents living near these various transit options, driving and parking costs would no longer be a factor, and transportation to the game would require very minimal or no cost at all.

Building On Community Investment

Before us stands a unique opportunity to correct past wrongs of misplacing critical community assets in isolation of other key amenities and neighborhoods. A new ballpark district in the Crossroads would integrate seamlessly with surrounding neighborhoods and activity centers. The Crossroads site will build upon $10 billion dollars of community investment in Downtown over the past two decades. A new home for the Royals in Downtown Kansas City will have great synergy with other catalytic projects within walking distance of the new district. Together, these amenities will mutually support each other and exponentially add to the economic impact of the region.

Pedestrian Vitality & Vibrant Environment

The new ballpark would no longer stand alone, separated from communities and amenities but placed in Downtown Kansas City, the region’s unrivaled center for social and pedestrian activity. Downtown Kansas City averages more than 182,000 daily visitors, employees, and residents. Downtown is the region’s largest employment center blended with the fastest-growing residential neighborhood in the metropolitan area. The constant flow of visitors through Downtown will overwhelmingly support the game day atmosphere as well as the district’s office, residential, and retail uses throughout the year.
