Bedrock Concrete LLC is proud to be a part of the $125 million Bluhawk sports complex project located in south Overland Park. The groundbreaking ceremony for the indoor facility, which covers 20,000 square feet, will take place on Wednesday, and Bedrock Concrete LLC will be providing construction services for the project. The facility will feature basketball, volleyball and pickleball courts, indoor turf, several batting cages, and an ice rink, with a seating capacity of 3,500 spectators. The complex is designed to offer fitness classes and family activities as well.
The Bluhawk sports complex is a part of the 277-acre Bluhawk development, owned by Price Brothers Management Company. Bart Lowen, vice president of development for Price Brothers, said that the complex is a “regional, if not national, draw.” He expects the facility to be a major asset for the area, especially with restaurants and markets located on the same stretch of land as the sports complex. The facility is scheduled to open in the fall of 2024 and is expected to draw $3.8 million yearly to the local economy, according to a release from Price Brothers.
Construction of the sports complex will take place in two phases. The first phase will include the construction of an ice rink, several basketball courts, batting cages, and concessions, scaling 250,000 square feet. The second construction phase will include another rink, a turf field the size of a football field, and additional basketball courts. Lowen said that he couldn’t give an estimate of when the future phase will be completed, as it’s predicated on the issuance of additional STAR bonds. The public is invited to the groundbreaking ceremony, scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday, where the name of the complex will also be announced.
Despite some setbacks, including opposition from area residents and delays due to the pandemic, Price Brothers is looking forward to sharing the complex’s amenities with Kansas City and beyond. Bedrock Concrete LLC is thrilled to be a part of this exciting project and is committed to providing high-quality construction services to ensure the project’s success.
