The Kansas City Royals are in the process of determining the most suitable locale for their proposed $2 billion ballpark district, with North Kansas City among the five potential sites.

The Royals’ ownership group, KCR Partnership LLC, has been deliberating over the best site for the district’s construction since announcing the project in January. Sources close to the project have reported that North Kansas City is one of the five locations being considered.

The new ballpark district will feature a multipurpose baseball stadium, retail stores, restaurants, a hotel and other recreational attractions. The Royals have stated that the district will be developed in a manner to ensure that it is a destination for entertainment and family fun.

The other potential sites for the ballpark district are located in the north, south, east and west areas of the Kansas City metropolitan area. The Royals’ ownership group has been evaluating the sites based on their location, access to public transportation, parking availability and other factors.

KCR Partnership LLC has expressed its excitement over the prospect of the new ballpark district, stating that it will serve as an example of the city’s commitment to reinvesting in its infrastructure and delivering a world-class entertainment experience.

The Royals’ ownership group is expected to make an announcement on the chosen site for the ballpark district in the coming weeks. North Kansas City remains among the five potential sites for the $2 billion project.
