Occidental Management Plans Mixed-Use Redevelopment of Former Sprint Headquarters Near Kansas City
OVERLAND PARK, KAN. — Occidental Management has unveiled its plans for the former Sprint Corp. headquarters campus in Overland Park. The Wichita, Kan.-based developer acquired the 200-acre property in July 2019 from Sprint.
The campus is situated at 6100 Sprint Parkway, 16 miles south of Kansas City, Kan. Occidental will keep existing buildings, which comprise 4 million square feet of office space, and add 2.7 million square feet of residential, retail, restaurant and office space throughout the site.
“This first look at development plans for the expansive campus is just the beginning,” says Gary Oborny, chairman and CEO of Occidental. “Our team has spent the past year researching and brainstorming the best approach to bringing an innovative, world-class, live-work-play environment to the center of the country.”
Occidental will also manage the leasing of the commercial areas. Space is available at the existing buildings and preleasing is underway for the first ground-up building, which is scheduled for completion in 2021. Occidental also plans to give the property a new name by early 2021.
Sprint sold the campus to Occidental when the telecommunications company agreed to merge with T-Mobile. The $26 billion merger was completed in April.
A design team and development costs for the redevelopment project were not disclosed.
