KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — The Overland Park City Council voted unanimously Monday to approve a rezoning request by Occidental Management, allowing a redevelopment plan for the former Sprint world headquarters campus to move forward.

Ordinance No. Z-4128 passed 12-0.

Occidental Management's development calls for 600 residential units, 1.1 million square feet of office space, 375,000 square feet of retail space and a 120-room hotel.

In addition, the approval will allow about 60 additional acres of the 207-acre property to be transformed into a community destination and gathering place.

The plan also hopes to expand amenities, including a water front office space with retail shops, restaurants, luxury multi-family housing, sports and fitness facilities and ample green space.

The preliminary development plan for the project includes nearly 2 million additional square feet of mixed-use space as well as a sustainable approach to making the three lakes, currently hidden, accessible to the public.

“We are excited to move forward with the City’s support to develop an energetic and innovative space for the people of Overland Park and the region,” Gary Oborny, Occidental Management CEO, said. “The vision is coming to life as we take another step toward re-energizing the area with an unprecedented mixed-use development.”

Construction is expected to begin at the end of 2021.
