Downtown Wichita – the urban core of the largest city in Kansas

Offering vibrant cultural experiences, walkable amenities and easy access to either side of town, downtown is Wichita’s favorite place to go for great art, local flavor, vibrant nightlife and active adventures.

Immersed in the center of it all are major employers who have made downtown their home. A new $70 million global headquarters for Cargill’s Protein Division was recently completed – just down the street from the headquarters of High Touch Technologies, Fidelity Bank and INTRUST Bank.

With 740 residential units under development, 121 unique retailers and 3.1 million square feet of occupied office space, the core of the largest city in Kansas – downtown Wichita is the employment epicenter. In the last decade, over $1 billion of investment has been a catalyst for growth and future development.

A thriving hub of social, professional and cultural experiences, downtown is home to INTRUST Bank Arena, Century II Performing Arts Center, the historic Orpheum Theatre and more.

Empowering possibilities downtown. Downtown Wichita is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that amplifies the energy, capital, and growth of downtown by empowering residents, visitors, and businesses to explore the possibilities of Wichita’s core. In 2010, Wichita adopted Project Downtown: The Master Plan for Wichita, which serves as a blueprint for economic growth in the urban core. Since its adoption, 70 development projects have been completed with more underway.
