River Vista

The Wichita City Council has approved a new residential development for Project Downtown’s Catalyst Site One on the west bank of the Arkansas River.

Project Downtown: The Master Plan for Wichita recognized the area on the west bank of the Arkansas River between Douglas Ave and First Street as a key parcel in the development in Downtown Wichita. This area, named Catalyst Site One in Project Downtown, will be transformed into River Vista, a residential development that activates the River.

The proposed new River Vista project includes 203-units. A pool deck area and clubhouse will be available for residents. Along with this development, the City will be making significant improvements to the river front and adjacent Delano Park with the use of STAR Bonds. These enhancements will continue the connective trail system along the river and add an exciting amenity which will allow the general public to engage the river.

In addition to the new residential, River Vista will introduce a “Boats and Bikes” concept that will be used by area rowing groups and also offer public boat and bike rentals. The striking new architecture along the river will help activate the corridor and add a welcome addition to the Wichita skyline. The plan also provides public and residential parking spaces and provides improved access to the river and joining trail system.
