Downtown Wichita > Listing
Cost - $38.4 Million. River Vista will be a new residential development project at Project Downtown's Catalyst Site One on the west bank of the Arkansas River. The new development, River Vista, will be a 203-unit apartment project located on McLean Boulevard. In addition, the City of Wichita and State have committed to make improvements to the riverfront and adjacent Delano Park. These enhancements will continue the connective trail system along the river and add an exciting amenity that will allow the general public to further engage the river. Crews broke ground on the project in July after more than two years of planning, starting with dirt work and underground sewer and utility work. The project also includes a "Boats and Bikes" concept that will be used by area rowing groups and also offer public boat and bike rentals. The plan also incorporates 341 public and residential parking spaces and provides improved access to the river and joining trail system. Construction should start on the apartments in summer of 2016, with an expected opening in the middle of 2017.
