Union Station Renovation

Developers announce $54 Million project

Renovation of one of Downtown Wichita's most iconic buildings will soon be underway as new plans have been announced. Developer Gary Oborny of Occidental Management identified $54 Million of redevelopment and expansion projects for the Downtown Union Station campus, which includes the Wichita Historic train station, Union Station, Rock Island depot and baggage facility, and the former Wichita Grand Hotel, as seen in the site plan below.

Plans include updating the four existing buildings in the campus, and an additional 150,000 SF of new space through two newly constructed buildings and the expansion of an existing building.

The redevelopment efforts will also provide a new parking garage that can house retail, restaurants and office space. Additionally, over five acres of public space will include public access walkways and a redeveloped plaza area that fronts Douglas Avenue. Learn more about the new Union Station development plans from a recent Wichita Eagle news article and news story from KWCH Channel 12.
