Wichita Arena

Project Description:   Sedgwick County, Kansas retained Land Acquisitions, Inc. (LAI)  to develop and implement a relocation assistance program in which 64 commercial and industrial businesses were relocated in a twelve month time frame.


The most significant challenge was that the County condemned all but one of the parcels.  Property owners and tenants were extremely reluctant to cooperate with the relocation agent.  LAI’s principle in charge personally met with owners, tenants and their attorneys in order to work through the many concerns. 


Specialized move services including industrial cranes, high voltage electrical contractors and heavy machinery moving companies were arranged for and supervised by LAI.


Flexible, “out-of the box” solutions enabled Land Acquisitions, Inc. to meet the needs of the County in an environment with a moving schedule. 


The types of relocation included bars, restaurants, offices, industrial warehouses, industrial manufacturing facilities, a food processing / meat packing facility and several automotive service and repair centers.



Located in the center of a revitalizing area of downtown Wichita, the INTRUST Bank Arena is a modern, first-class, sports and entertainment venue in the center city of Sedgwick County with a 15,000 seat arena and 20 executive and 2 party suites designed to provide maximum "fan experience" for all guests.  The facility is bordered by William Street on the North, Waterman Street on the South, the tracks on the East and Emporia Street on the West.


The exterior is brick and limestone facades, and the expansive lobby view toward Kellogg will welcome visitors and blend with the surrounding architectural heritage.


Other venues neighboring the new arena include the Old Town entertainment district, the WaterWalk, the Proposed Art District, & the historic Eaton Place block. Visitors can be part of our "new urbanist" life in Wichita, where hotels, trendy restaurants, classic residential living and entertainment options co-exist in a pedestrian-friendly environment.
