KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A metro group wants to give Kansas City’s riverfront a makeover.

Port KC wants to build an 80-acre development that would include office spaces, along with retail and residential buildings.

The goal is to connect downtown to the riverfront area and give people a great park to hangout in, with a great view of the city’s downtown.

Already, Berkley Park along the riverfront is home to running and biking trails and multiple sand volleyball courts. Now, Port KC wants to add more amenities that will make people travel to the park more often.

The plan will be unveiled Wednesday at noon at Oppenstein Brothers Park and again between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at Berkley Park.

The event will also feature an ice cream truck and a free fitness class.

Construction has already begun on a new apartment complex in the area. The new complex, called Union, will house 400 luxury apartments, 1,200 thousand square feet of retail space, secure parking, a heated saltwater pool, a fitness center and an attached dog park.

The building will go hand in hand with Port KC’s plan.
