Project Downtown recognizes the riverfront as a catalytic area that will further the transformation of downtown into a vibrant urban center. In response to recommendations from the Project Wichita regional visioning process and the Century II Citizens Advisory Committee, Downtown Wichita and multiple private sector organizations partnered with the public sector to form the Riverfront Legacy Master Plan Coalition. The goal of the coalition was to create a comprehensive, community vision and master plan for the east bank of the Arkansas River.After six months of community engagement, numerous public meetings and gathering input online, the Design Team (comprised of Populous, RCLCO and Olin Studio) presented their recommendations for the site at a public open house in January 2020.

The Coalition will resume the process when timing is appropriate, and will take deliberate steps to identify how the markets (hospitality, commercial, convention, etc.) have been impacted by COVID-19 to ensure the plan has a strong economic foundation.Proposed rendering of the riverfront6'
