Barney Allis Plaza: Due Diligence Study

Kansas City, Missouri

 

We studied replacing this existing below-grade parking facility and rooftop plaza with a vibrant, highly activated pedestrian-friendly destination park to serve the growing needs of Downtown visitors, convention attendees and residents.

Confluence was instrumental in developing a comprehensive due diligence study to explore the potential for redeveloping Barney Allis Plaza and the Auditorium Plaza Garage. Our role included extensive stakeholder and community outreach, the development of an initial program of park spaces and uses, and anticipated construction costs, revenues, operations and maintenance expenditures as part of a concept-level business plan to guide future development of this space.

This study also included researching emerging trends in urban parks and plaza design throughout the United States - and analyzing several precedent projects. Recommendations included potential park, plaza, and parking configurations to serve daily use, with flexibility to host numerous events and festivals. It also included innovative opportunities to address sustainable stormwater solutions to benefit the surrounding Downtown area.
